About Do IoT Fieldlab

Groundbreaking Internet of Things for a better society.

Groundbreaking research is being done in the field of Internet of Things (IoT) and there is great market potential for new products that capitalize on the opportunities of the latest generation of mobile communication technology (currently 5G). Linking fundamental research to possible applications in a realistic environment ensures that these innovations can reach society more quickly.

Delft on Internet of Things (Do IoT) Fieldlab drives the acceleration of innovations in the field of IoT by facilitating research, by bringing the right parties together for innovation questions, and by supporting companies in the realisation of new and better products and services. We initiate and stimulate intensive collaboration between science, industry and government. In doing this, Do IoT Fieldlab supports the social ambitions for a more sustainable, healthier and safer society and contributes to economic growth in the Netherlands.

A place of innovation

The Do IoT Fieldlab is an open platform aimed at stimulating and facilitating research and innovation in the Internet of Things. The field lab offers the facilities, expertise and a relevant network for researchers, large and small companies, start-ups and students with which they can develop and test IoT applications based on the latest wireless communication technology (including 5G) in a real-life environment outside the classic laboratory. In all this, we work closely with research scientists of the TU Delft and TNO, other experts, entrepreneurs and policymakers in the public and private sector.

One-stop shop

We are a one-stop shop where companies, municipalities and other public or private organizations can come with questions about research and innovation in mobile communication technology and IoT


Do IoT Fieldlab is part of an extensive network of knowledge, experience and contacts. We bring the right parties together to find solutions to questions or to develop and shape new ideas in the field of IoT and have the expertise to advise and guide in the development and upscaling of innovations. Do IoT Fieldlab is therefore excellently equipped to aid companies in taking the next step in the development of their IoT products or services.

Test facilities

Do IoT Fieldlab provides businesses with the opportunity to test their IoT innovations in a controlled environment, utilizing state-of-the-art physical and digital infrastructure dedicated to IoT research and innovation. Currently, there are four testing locations: one at The Green Village and one at RoboHouse, both located on the TU Delft Campus, a third at Tomatoworld in the greenhouse, and the last one at Unmanned Valley (former naval air station Valkenburg). Additionally, Do IoT Fieldlab offers a mobile testing setup for on-site use.

Prime innovation centre in the field of IoT

Our ambition is to become the prime innovation centre in the field of IoT. In collaboration with our partners we have the objective to stimulate the economy by means of a targeted innovation impulse in the form of a regional knowledge and innovation centre. Knowledge development and transfer are paramount, as is the connection between education, research, the business community, governments and end-users.
