Do IoT Fieldlab is being further developed with the help of a financial contribution from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Our ambition is to become the prime innovation centre in the field of IoT. The collaborating partners have the objective to stimulate the economy by means of a targeted innovation impulse, in the form of a regional knowledge and innovation centre.

Within the framework of this project, we are building our ICT infrastructure based entirely on 5G technology that is also operator neutral. Two test locations are being set up, where this ultra-modern experimental communication infrastructure can be used; at The Green Village on the TU Delft Campus and at Unmanned Valley in Katwijk. These are both “low-regulation” test sites, which makes it possible to quickly develop innovations in the field of 5G and the Internet of Things. In addition, a mobile test setup is being built that can be used for on-site testing. Another important part of the Do IoT Fieldlab is a data platform for the secure collection and sharing of generated sensor data in the various test setups and projects.

As part of the ERDF project, six pilot projects with involved SMEs and other organisations are being carried out to stimulate innovations in IoT in the themes of mobility, logistics, smart manufacturing, safety, health and smart cities. In the implementation period of this three-year project, several SME projects will be supported by the Do IoT Fieldlab, with numerous new IoT products and services expected to reach the market. In addition, events and workshops will be held to share knowledge with the partners and interested parties involved and to expand the network. The projects and activities that will take place in the coming years will lead to growth in employment and business in the form of new start- ups and scale-ups. This way we continue to expand our knowledge, expertise and network.
