As the Internet of Things (IoT) rapidly takes shape, Intel IoT Ignition Labs are popping up all over Europe. One in particular is showcasing British innovations: Intel IoT’s Intel IoT Ignition Lab in Swindon, near London.
The IoT lab showcases innovations built on Intel technology that are focused on the areas of retail, transportation, and smart cities, and is a place for British-based companies to innovate, collaborate, and scale out ideas. The lab offers tools, technology, and engineering know-how to those in the industry who are working to take IoT projects into commercial deployment.
Inside the UK Intel IoT Ignition Lab
Inside the lab, a showcase area features solution demos and developer kits. The most important focus turns customer projects into commercial products and revenue. Additionally, intensive workshops provide training that covers everything from the Intel IoT Gateway to Hadoop and big data analytics.
The Swindon lab features demonstrations of existing Intel IoT solutions, including:
Additionally, the lab serves as a venue to host developer networking and matchmaking events across the IoT community — recently hosting the winners of an Intel IoT Roadshow in the lab for a week — as well as multiparty sessions on business modeling and scalable go-to-market strategies. Thanks to a long history of collaboration between Intel, Intel Labs Europe, and British technology companies, Intel’s IoT Ignition Lab in Swindon is well on its way to improving the way we experience the world around us.
What are IoT Ignition Labs?
Intel’s IoT Ignition Labs recognize the need to enable the fast creation of scalable, standardized solutions. They provide hands-on opportunities to experience the latest IoT technologies, access to matchmaking across the Intel ecosystem, exposure to proofs of concept and use cases from peers, and advice on how to take solutions to market. With eight locations across the region, solutions can be diffused rapidly saving development time and helping to extend customer reach into new markets.
