  • Hi Matthew and Chris

    What would be great to share with the audience is around the additional level of required GPS accuracy that the Windows 8 tablet platform provides alongside multi-tasking capability and a USB port. Seemingly small differences with huge impacts in usability and safety.

  3. 3. 3 BACKGROUND Innovate NSW – Collaborative Solutions
  4. 4. 4 Biosecurity Information System The BIS application formed a part of larger business transformation program to develop an enterprise application capturing Health/ Biosecurity events; • Health Management - Livestock • Health Management – Pest and Plant • Emergency Response Management • Disaster Response Reporting • Aquatic Disease • Cattle Tick Management Programs • Weed Infestation Management Programs • Invasive Species control programs • Avery Management (Bees) • Market assurance programs for farmer growers
  5. 5. 5 COLLABORATIVE SOLUTIONS MOBILE GOVERNMENT (CSMG) Innovate NSW – Collaborative Solutions
  6. 6. 6 Collaboration & Mobility – BioMobility (1) • In 2012, Artis Group awarded a competitive grant under the NSW government CSMG Program to develop mobile technology for NSW government • Partnered with BigTinCan and Avnet • iPad application known as the “Field Agent for Biosecurity (FAB)” delivered in November 2012 • Windows 8 Tablet version called FAB4WIN commenced off the back of Microsoft funding in 2013 • Both versions offer offline operation imperative to field users Above: The logon screen of FAB (iPad) Above: The home screen of FAB (iPad)
  7. 7. 7 Collaboration & Mobility – BioMobility (2) • Camera, GPS and other sensors on the device are exploited including querying which spatial features are in the current vicinity and recording photographs. • Concept of “skinning” applied so that new events can be delivered as required eg. Hendra • Extend the platforms coverage across other non-Livestock functions and crucially into Emergency Management. • FAB used in recent Avian Influenza outbreak near Young NSW Above: Defining an Area of Interest on FAB4WIN Above: The home screen of FAB4WIN
  8. 8. 8 Design Features (1) • Event/Entity Model • New Events can be built as required • A common data model developed to fit all Biosecurity areas (domains) • Meta data layer to “skin” the application for multiple domains of users eg. “Vet”, ”Officer” or “Regulatory Officer” are all “Officers” • Designed from a reporting perspective
  9. 9. 9 Design Features (2) • Reporting to be flexible and detached from the application • Spatial data capture essential at all levels to integrate with spatial systems • Full Active Directory Support through to the device
  10. 10. 10 RESULTANT EXPORTS AND GROWTH Innovate NSW – Collaborative Solutions
  11. 11. 11 Exports - Queensland DAFF • In May 2013 Artis was engaged by QLD DAFF to setup and execute a functionality demonstration of BIS/ BioMobility. • In noting the success NSW had experienced by keeping the overall design and of BIS to the users, critically DAFF decided that an early rollout of QLD BIS (QBIS henceforth) to users. • Rather than engaging in a process of an up-front requirements gathering process, it was agreed that putting the users in a live experience of using the system would allow the users to assess whether the application provided the basis of a good biosecurity platform going forward. • The current NSW system was modified and deployed to a pilot site hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and configuration. • The NSW waratah was replaced with the QLD Government logo and the term “Vet/Ranger” in data capture replaced by “Field Officer”. • Other interest from NT DPI, US Dept of State
  12. 12. 12 Electronic Health Sample Submission • Sample Submission has been typically paper bound • In an emergency response timely test results are critical in ensuring the disease is quickly diagnose and assess to implement speedy and accurate test result response. • Straight through processing of sample submission data from BIS to the departments test labs. • The user is able to data enter required testing and have the labs instantly advise of the required testing while the samples are being couriered. • Scheduled for early 2nd quarter 2014. • The sampling feature will work across all domains integrating with Thermos SampleManager LIMS product. Above: Talking direct to the labs
  13. 13. 13 Invasive Species and Weed Management • New domains added to extend the system to cover infestation management of: – Invasive Species eg. Foxes – Weeds eg. Woody Weed • Application being externalised outside of DPI for external contractors • Potential replacement of localised applications for LGA • Specification for coverage of Locust and Mouse plague scenarios pending
  14. 14. 14 Cross Functional Engagements • Artis was engaged to advise on enterprise level architecture • Artis identified that an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) approach to align with the NSW eGovernment Interoperability Framework • Way forward currently under review
  15. 15. 15 Olive Oil Testing Modernisation • Based at Wagga, provides solutions for growers and processors. The service is based on the latest technology and requirements of the IOC (International Olive Council). • The laboratory also provides all testing required in determining if olive oil meets the Australian Standard AS5264-2011. • The chemical testing Laboratory and organoleptic (sensory) panel is accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) and the International Olive Council (IOC). • It also participates in proficiency tests conducted by international organisations such as the IOC and the American Oil Chemists Society (AOCS) and the German Society for Fat Science (DGF). • Windows 8 tablets introduced into the olive testing area. The introduction of tablets will improve data capture integrity thus leading to increased quality and timeliness to market. • After the analysis of the existing bespoke agricultural product testing application Artis Group worked with the Agricultural team to understand their user requirements to develop using modern design principles a cost effective solution.
  16. 16. 16 Geospatial Data and Cloud Computing • The ACFR (Sydney Uni) is one of the largest robotics research institutes in the world • Engages prototype drones to take imagery and use sophisticated image analysis to identify weed infestations • Technology designed to be faster and cheaper than “paddock tracking” • Engaged to architect an operational and cost effective ‘cloud computing’ environment for enhancement and extension of these operations in the future.
