Nasscom’s CoE IoT has been conducting events and program, along with its enterprise partners, across India to identify the top IoT startups in India.
It has curated over 300 startups to select these 65 startups and then sent them the invitation to participate in the selection process for CEATEC, Japan. Internet of Things or IoT refers to a network of inter-connected devices that can be accessed through the internet.
For instance, with IoT, street lights will automatically go off when they sense no traffic on the roads and consequently, save power. Another application could be a smart band that will automatically alert a physician when body vitals go to abnormal levels. “I am extremely proud to announce that nine out of 10 who got selected were a part of Nasscom’s CoE-IoT connect programme. With the advent of new technologies and changing essence of ‘things’, IoT is bringing new value to innovation in the world,” Nasscom President R Chandrashekhar said. He added that a platform like CEATEC will prove to be a great contributor in the journey of these selected startups.
CEATEC aims to bring global recognition and changing the perception towards transforming technology in India and also signifies growing Japan-India cooperation in the field of emerging technologies.
