At a given point of time, there were more than 300 lakes in Bangalore. The city met its water needs from the Dharmambudi lake, where today a sprawling city bus stand exists. My father shares that like…

Dear Friends,

I started the course “Product Prototyping in IoT” in association with Dr. Vijay Mishra in January at Center for Continuing Education at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore with a mission to help my students build products using Internet of Things.

Dear friends,

Its been eight years since I embarked on a career vision which states as “To work towards making sustainable technologies as the default choice for the world”. With the vision as the compass, me and my team at FluxGen worked on Renewable Energy Systems, rural electrification using Solar Photovoltaics, water management system for agriculture(irrigation systems) and water management system for Industries all these years. To solve our customer problem we used Internet of Things (IoT) along with data analytics to monitor and analyze systems we built. For the pioneering works we did in IoT, at least in India…
