SensorLab is an interdepartmental laboratory within Jozef Stefan Institute which carries out research and development related to the Internet of Things, Web of Things and Smart Objects. Most solutions are prototyped and tested, and based on obtained results and experience we continuously improve our hardware and software platforms.

The laboratory is supported by several groups from JSI: the Department of Communication Systems and the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.

The Department of Communication Systems covers research and prototyping related to wireless communication protocols, sensor networks, embedded systems and energy efficiency.

The Artificial Intelligence Laboratory covers research in sensor data management, sensor stream mining and semantic services.


Learn more about LOG-a-TEC, our VESNA based testbed! 

LOG-a-TEC covers a set of diverse testbeds used for research purposes. The testbeds are mostly based on the VESNA hardware platform - developed by SensorLab.

The testbeds currently consist of 70-80 sensor nodes installed outdoors, mostly on light poles and rooftops in different regions of Slovenia. They allow remote monitoring, reconfiguration and experimentation. The application area range from environmental monitoring, smarts grids to cognitive radio experimentation.


Our paper "Trends in the devlopment of communication networks: Cognitive networks" is the 10th among the 25th most cited articles published since 2009, extracted from Scopus, see all on the Elsevier web site.

Check the "Cognitive radio experimentation with VESNA platform" presentation by Miha Smolnikar at the School on Applications of Open Spectrum and White Spaces Technologies.

We are looking for a C programmers that would join the team developing the VESNA platform. Candidates that have previous experience with electronic circuit design, operating systems or open source projects will have priority.

Together with industrial partners we are working on advanced control of ventilation system with heat recuperation. Read more in Slovenian.

The CFP for the Web of Things workshop is out. Consider submitting a paper.
