NSI Lab provides a physical space that allows for experimentation, prototyping, testing and demonstration of new applications and services.
We have capabilities for software development across a number of languages and platforms, technology testing, education and training. The NSI Lab is a leader in VR and AR development.
The Lab brings together experimental networks, software, and connected devices to facilitate interactions between NSI research programs and enable innovation.
A dedicated team of researchers provide the knowledge, skills, and expertise to fashion practical solutions and support the Institute’s research activities.
The team actively contribute across the full spectrum of the Institute’s research projects and initiatives, ensuring that the technological dimensions of the networked society are incorporated.
The Lab is connected to a number of external resources to support the research efforts of NSI.
It provides a space for events, participatory workshops and interactive demonstrations.
Additionally, the Lab provides an opportunity to develop and foster collaboration with a diverse range of partners.
Numerous small-scale projects are hosted within the NSI Lab. These projects start as collaborations with a technical or development focus. They often provide the foundation for further engagement, research, and development.
