UW-Madison to explore technology with ‘Internet of Things Lab’ open house

University of Wisconsin-Madison’s College of Engineering will welcome students to explore technology with the first “Internet of Things Lab” open house Thursday, according to a news release.

The IoT Lab, which will be held 5 to 7 p.m. at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, will allow students to understand and potentially innovate current technology.

A device named the “magic cabinet,” which holds an array of technologies, some providing sensors and processors that enhance hyperconnectivity, will be available in the lab for students to observe and study.

Sandra Bradley, IoT’s co-director, explained the opportunities available with the IoT Lab could spark students’ interests in advancing future technology and possibly developing commercial products.

“We wanted to show Wisconsin companies and others what is on the horizon,” Bradley said.

Currently, a team of students is using the IoT Lab to experiment with gesture sensitive armbands and their ability to further develop the use of American Sign Language.
