Internet of Things Garage


We ❤️ building connected things that work...also secure, safer, and sustainable

More formally, most of our research is build-driven and somewhat experimental and mostly applied. This means that we build things, systems, and techniques and evaluate them in real-world settings. We aim to demonstrate how they work but never focus on giving theoretical guarantees. We always like to stay closer to end users than to the theories. In our work, the objective is to produce artefacts (software system, things) that are useful in the real world. Therefore, we felt that the name 'IoT Garage' is more appropriate and describes our work well than the more traditional or common name 'IoT Laboratory'. We are not alone, see: Microsoft Garage.
