Indiana Internet of Things Lab to Open This Summer

The crossroads of America could become the crossroads for connected devices in the Internet of Things. Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb and Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness have announced plans for an Indiana IoT lab in Fishers, scheduled to open in the summer of 2017. The IoT lab is part of Governor Holcomb’s Next Level Legislative Agenda. Agriculture, manufacturing, and transportation and logistics are among the industries of focus for IoT in Indiana. 

The Indiana IoT lab will include maker space, meeting space, project suites, and space to test IoT solutions. This is the first IoT lab in Indiana, and organizers expect to launch additional labs in the future as part of the Indiana IoT Labs Network. The Indiana IoT lab in Fishers will help people improve on four components of IoT solutions, which include ideation, cloud data, edge software, and development.

The facility will house a second operations center for founding partner ClearObject, formerly CloudOne, named as Inc. Magazine’s fastest-growing IT company in Indiana for 2014, 2015, and 2016. ClearObject CEO John McDonald also announced that the company will grow its employee base by 15 percent this year.

In addition, Indiana University is a founding partner, and will have a presence at the nearly 25,000-square-foot facility. John Wechsler of Launch Fishers will lead the IoT lab initiative. The IoT lab at Fishers will be located at 9059 Technology Drive.

The membership model will be similar to that of Launch Fishers. To request membership information, click here. Non-members will also be able to bring their IoT questions to the membership base for assistance.
