With the inauguration of the Internet of Things (IoT) Innovation Centre at the Federal Science and Technical College (FSTC), Yaba, Lagos Mainland, Nigeria may have begun breeding its own army of Elon Musks, the award-winning scientist-entrepreneur credited for innovations in transportation, space travel and energy. The centre is the first in sub-Saharan Africa that provides students with a platform to innovate and find solutions to challenges using technology. The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the inter-connection of gadgets such that they communicate to solve problems. It is gaining influence in various areas of human endeavour and is already in common use in advanced countries – in the management of healthcare, precision agriculture, energy, building management, transportation and the like. IoT is the reason doors open when a person approaches; alarms ring when certain sensors are activated; a car can operate without a driver, and things can be remotely controlled.
