‘AmbiTAG’--- IIT Ropar
  • It is India’s first-of-its-kind IoT based device that will allow secure transportation of vaccines, blood and body organs, perishable products (food and dairy), etc.
  • The ‘AmbiTAG’ also attains the objective of ‘Atma Nirbhar Bharat’.
  • The ‘AmbiTAG’ records real-time ambient temperature during the transportation of perishable products, vaccines and even body organs and blood.
  • The temperature recorded by it further helps to know whether the product which is being transported from anywhere in the world is still usable or perished because of temperature variation.
  • The temperature variation for such products is vital as it decides its quality and life; particularly critical for vaccines including the Covid-19 vaccine.
  • Therefore, the ‘AmbiTAG’ continuously records the temperature of its immediate surroundings from -40 to +80 degrees in any time zone for a full 90 days on a single charge.
  • The ‘AmbiTAG’ is developed by IIT Ropar’s Technology Innovation Hub named AWaDH (Agriculture and Water Technology Development Hub) and its Startup ScratchNest.
