Thoughts and updates from the OpenIO team
What we often hear is that IoT and machine to machine communications hold so much potential, but the reality is that the uniqueness of each lab set up makes it hard to benefit from what it offers. The need to introduce modern equipment is important, as it increases efficiency, but incorporating them means reinvesting in new technologies, that is until OpenIOLabs was launched.
We’re excited to say we’ve won a place at Innovate UK, taking place on the 2 and 3 November in Manchester. This is an incredible opportunity for OpenIOLabs and we can’t wait to be among so many ground-breaking UK companies. What makes us feel particularly proud to be part of it is that there […]
How much of your time is lost in organising your lab? A connected lab is what many scientists aim for but the time to implement is small, and what if it doesn’t work? This blog post focuses on the features of a connected lab, the ease of set up and the efficiencies it provides.
Are you an SICM (Scanning Ion Conductance Microscope) user? We’ve brought the Ionscope brand into the OpenIOLabs meaning you can now start to benefit from the flexible OpenIOLabs control and data acquisition platform.
How can we create an open source hardware ecosystem? We review a paper from Microsoft Research and what it teaches us about the success of open source software.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has revolutionised how we collect and store data, but it does mean there is the burden of handling it all. How can data be organised and used more effectively with fewer growing pains? We look at edge processing and how it can streamline the way you work.
What if OpenIOLabs was able to help us be kinder to the environment? Read about an exciting project OpenIOLabs has been used for, a way to reduce damaging emissions in the shipping industry.
Do you find that you’re locked out from using the best equipment because programming languages clash? It is a familiar problem in both academic and industry settings, and one we have overcome at OpenIOLabs with ScriptML™ (Script Meta-Language).
