The lab focuses on various aspects of smart cities such as water, energy, solar, pollution, weather, and occupancy/crowd management. Benoit Sauveroche from the European Commission recommended the lab as a must-visit place in Hyderabad.

    The lab provides a live testing environment for innovations before implementing them in cities. It has sensor nodes for different aspects and uses communication protocols like 5G, 4G, WiFi, LORAWAN, and Wi-SUN. The data is sent to OneM2M following IoT standards and stored in a data warehouse with standardized information models. Currently, there are 300 nodes deployed across the campus.
