Explore Beacons

A beacon is a Bluetooth device which broadcasts a unique identifier on a regular basis allowing the apps installed on mobile devices to activate specific actions (e.g. push notifications, guide the user, etc.). The beacon, in order to maximize battery life, uses the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol and has no logic inside. If you’ve got interest, come to us and get in touch with Beacons

Feature Matrix Analysis

Have you always wanted to know which functions characterize your application and which competitive products offer more than your product? Then this is the right service for you. We compare your application with competing products on the market and create a feature matrix for you that summarizes everything important and illustrates it in a simple way.

RequiredApplication or feature-needs to compare with products on the market.

IoT Strategy Paper

After an introduction to IoT at the Free Software Lab we’ll discuss your needs and identify the best suited technologies for you and your needs. The typical agenda of the workshop will be: - introduction to IoT-oriented connectivity technologies based on the customer needs; - brainstorming section together with the customer; - identification of possible IoT solutions that are fitting the needs of the customer. Duration1 day of active workshop for you and your team at the Free Software Lab.

LoRaWAN Introduction

This service offers an introduction to the LoRaWAN technology, a network for Internet Of Things (IoT) devices, using the LoRaWAN@NOI network which has been installed at the NOI Techpark in collaboration with the FESR Beacon Südtirol - Alto Adige project. During this introduction companies will have the possibility to build a first working prototype over the LoRaWAN@NOI and to interact with sensor data. You can bring your own devices or use the one made available by the Free Software Lab.

LoRaWAN Starter Kit

Starter Kit is aimed at experiment Internet of Things application by providing the components needed to build and connect a LoRa based IoT proof of concept. The pre-configured devices and connectors helps speed up the development of use cases including smart city, building, agriculture, industrial, utility and many others.

Open Source Software

This experimental laboratory is the appropriate test environment for software developers, CIOs, and CTOs to evaluate investments in new trends and technologies. It offers premises that are equipped with the latest technologies such as LoRaWAN, Beacon or 5G and instruments such as virtual assistants, as well as, if required, the support of digital experts.

Software development automation

Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery can help to build and deliver quality software in a reliable way. We will cover a set of principles and techniques that allow you to have control over the release process and its automation while keeping an eye on efficiency, costs and risks.

Understand Kanban

Starting with an overview of flow-based methods, we will tackle the six core practices of Kanban, from visualizing your workflow to collaboratively improving through experimentation. At the end of the day we will compare Kanban and Scrum to see some key differences between these two major frameworks.

Duration1 day of active workshop for you and your team at the Free Software Lab.

littleBits Kits

“littleBits is one of the most effective tools in helping students learn basic circuitry concepts.” (Kylie Peppler). It is a hands-on learning system of electronic building blocks that allows students of all ages to create with technology. They are easy to use and simple to understand, no prior experience required. Young talents can visit the NOI Techpark and learn about circuits, we do keep different KITS to explore and to be creative with.
