About us

Instruments & Data Tools was founded in 2014 by Daniel Pelliccia in Melbourne (Australia) to provide end-to-end instrumentation prototyping to research institutions and start-ups.

Today, we specialise in rapid prototyping of portable instruments, IoT systems, and data analytics.

If you have a design idea, and need some help with fleshing out the design, we offer cost-effective prototyping and take care of all steps, from electronics through to mechanical design and 3D printing.

Managing Director

Hi, I'm an optical physicist, data scientist and entrepreneur with experience in imaging, sensing and data analytics

After my PhD in physics I have developed instrumentations for particle accelerators (called synchrotrons) in Germany and Australia. I have been always in and around R&D in academia and research institutions, until I decided to start Instruments & Data Tools.

These days I love taking on projects on sensor design, optical design and interesting analytics (I'm a Python fanatic).

I recently launched Rubens Technologies, the intelligence system for the fresh fruit supply chain.
