Special Interest Group - Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming the agriculture industry and enabling agricultural engineers to contend with the enormous challenges they face. New innovative IoT applications are addressing these issues and increasing the quality, quantity, sustainability and cost effectiveness of agricultural production.

Internet of Things (IoT) Special Interest Group

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a significant network, communication and interfacing concept in the process of realisation, and now very much within the commercial gaze as a prominent source of opportunities for enterprise and product, systems and services innovation in the agricultural, horticultural and aquaculture sectors of primary food production. 
 
In association with the National Centre for Precision Farming hosted through HAU, the IoT Special Interest Group intends to bring IoT systems, hardware, software and service providers together with farmers, and other farming stakeholders, to develop new IoT-related products and services that will benefit the food and farming supply chain. The group aims to identify technology-related opportunities to increase farm productivity and then take appropriate steps to develop innovative products and services. The group will also consider improvements to the key elements of the IoT technology stack, thus paving the way for future developments in the IoT and next generation IoT-related products and services. It is envisaged that the IoT group will link with members of the Big Data Special Interest Group to consider data management opportunities.
