congatec announces its cooperation with the IoT Innovation Lab at the University of Applied Sciences (HAW) Landshut, which is supported by the Bavarian Center for Digitalization (Zentrum Digitalisierung.Bayern, ZD.B) and the State Ministry for Science and Art (StMWK). The purpose of the cooperation is to prepare students for the practical development and use of IoT technologies while also promoting the development of vendor-independent standards. The first successful completed joint project is the implementation of a modular software component for the UIC interface standard released by the SGET e.V. Further projects will follow.
The results of the IoT project, which counts as a specialization module and during which the “UIC Communication Engine for Amazon Web Services (AWS)” was developed, will be incorporated into the SGET standards and made publicly available under MIT license on the online software development platform GitHub. The MIT license makes it possible to distribute reviews and larger projects without releasing the source code. The results of the students’ open-source IoT project are accessible to the entire community and described in detail.
