A collection of objects related to different fields, such as science, music, arts and sports, is the starting point for conversations with people who will tell us more about the history of these objects.

A new episode is released every week. The podcast “110 Histórias | 110 Objetos” (“110 Stories, 110 Objects”) is part of the Público newspaper podcasts.

Today’s episode (#47) – 20th May, 2022: “110 Histórias | 110 Objetos” (“110 Stories, 110 Objects”) – “A IST_Board”.

In 2006, the vision and urgency of a project by Técnico professors and students would give rise to a technological solution for an international company that would become a sales phenomenon. The “IST_Board” (prototype name), a data acquisition board, allowed Técnico students to go deeper into their automation work, which included the programming of small robots, the “rasteirinhos”, testing the principles of autonomous driving. The execution of the USB card, which would allow data sharing between laptops and robots, was taken over by National Instruments, which, inspired by Técnico’s needs, would build one of the best-selling products in the years that followed. The company would launch a range of products aimed at Universities. Portugal and Técnico were pioneers.
