WiSAR and the Internet of Things 24.05.23

Established in 2008, the Wireless Sensor and Applied Research Lab (WiSAR) at Letterkenny Institute of Technology specialises in the Internet of Things with innovation at the heart of everything they do.

The team at WiSAR have been involved in the success of various businesses and SME’s across the North West. Stephen Seawright shares his experiences: “Our unique cross border location enables us to build linkages across both Donegal and the wider Northwest City Region which has underpinned much of our growth and impact over the years. It is great to work with so many ambitious companies locally and we have developed many long term collaborations across the region.”
WiSAR also play an integral role in sharing their knowledge of key regional and national supports to local businesses and entrepreneurs by signposting them to other business support agencies across the region.

The business ecosystem across Donegal has embraced Innovation, research and collaboration with an open mind and a willingness to discover new methods as Stephen explains: “One of the best things about our work is the variety, no two projects are ever the same. Some clients want to tease out the feasibility of an idea while others may have a clear product or service in mind. You never really know what to expect with your next innovation project at WiSAR.”

The WiSAR team are always willing to speak to any entrepreneur to see how they can help them along in their innovation journey whether its developing a project with them, or signposting them to the right place for their needs.

The particular area of competence for WiSAR is the Internet of Things technology stack which, according to Maria Gallagher: “Boils down to data collection, data sorting, data analysis and visualization leading to business actions, monetization or productivity improvements.”

WiSAR invites any and all businesses and entrepreneurs with an idea or who wants to begin their innovation journey to come and speak to them. Stephen highlights: “Our door is always open, please visit us. Alternatively, we welcome the opportunity to visit any business. Show us around and you never know what ideas can materialize from a simple conversation.”
