what is unique about oblu
Multi-IMU (MIMU) Technology
The Multi-IMU (MIMU) array enables sensor fusion which brings down the stochastic errors and improves motion sensing performance.
On-board Motion Processing
Onboard 32-bits floating pt micro-controller enables complex navigational computation, thus enabling higher sampling rates.
Simplified PDR interface
PDR is made simplified by transmitting footsteps' displacement and change in orientation at every step, over wireless.

IIT Kanpur & oblu.io jointly offer a course on IoT
This introductory course would focus on the "smart sensor node" of a typical IoT system. Connectivity and data processing would be covered in brief. It would cover engineering fundamentals, blended with good industrial practices, which lead to first-time success of an IoT system design and development. API development, cloud computing and data analysis would also be covered in brief. oblu would be used as a case study in the classroom and also for the lab exercises.
After completing this course, participants will be in a position to understand various building blocks and working of state-of-the-art IoT systems. Participants would also gain enough insights to conceive and build IoT systems on their own.
