HSB, a technology service provider announced to sponsor Internet of Things (IoT) laboratory within the University of Hartford’s new advanced engineering and health sciences building.
The IoT lab, located in the 60,000-square-foot Hursey Center set to open by the end of August, will enable the university to expand and create new IoT programs that give students practical learning experiences related to sensors, connectivity and data analysis.
The university’s new academic facility will house classrooms and labs to advance its growing engineering and health professions programs. The IoT lab will be equipped with smart technology and capabilities with support from HSB’s IoT specialists.
The IoT lab will give HSB an opportunity to help shape the development of the University of Hartford’s IoT program and curriculum and encourage students to pursue careers in technology-related industries in the greater Hartford area and Connecticut.
“The IoT lab is a highlight of The Hursey Center, a learning space that will allow our students to experience and learn the skills necessary to be the world’s future health practitioners, engineers, inventors, and entrepreneurs,” said University of Hartford President Gregory Woodward.
HSB Applied Technology Solutions provides IoT sensor services and other innovative technologies to predict and prevent loss and optimise operations.
As part of its research and development efforts, HSB Applied Technology Solutions conducts pilot sensor programs in the Hartford area and around the country, including the University of Hartford campus, to test new sensor technologies and improve HSB’s proprietary algorithms.
