Internet of Things- A Plant and Marine Perspective

  1. 1. INTERNET OF THINGS A PLANT AND MARINE PERSPECTIVE
  2. 2. OPPORTUNITIES • More and lower cost sensors, more remotely • Research and innovation using real-time, big data • Full value chain, pan-industries view • Partnerships to operationalise R&D and innovation • Lead in creating autonomous sub-systems
  3. 3. INTERNET OF THINGS
  4. 4. WHY NOW? • Continuous reduction in costs and performance improvements reaches tipping point • Hardware is the new software (sort of) • New wireless technologies • Removed technical hurdle of enough unique Internet addresses with IPv6 • An element of investment, supplier marketing, and media attention setting off a self-reinforcing hype cycle
  5. 5. HOW BIG WILL IT BE? The Internet has led to disruptive innovation of digital industries like communications and entertainment. By digitising physical industries, the Internet of Things is setting off a bigger wave of disruptive innovation for physical industries like agriculture, infrastructure and cities.
  6. 6. BIG DATA FROM THE PHYSICAL WORLD • The 3 “V”s of big data increasingly apply to data from the physical world • Volume • Velocity • Variety • Also need to consider Variability and Veracity • In turn, makes Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence possible
  7. 7. WHAT’S HOLDING NZ BACK? • Cheap and ubiquitous wireless connectivity • In-depth understanding of the true opportunities • Demand for real-time data • Visible success stories • Momentum and Leadership
  8. 8. INTERNET OF THINGS PHASE 2 ‘FOG COMPUTING’ ‘WEB OF THINGS’
  9. 9. KOTAHINET • Low power, long range national network • Data from sensors • Complete solutions for primary industries
  10. 10. KOTAHINET’S NETWORK • Purpose built for the Internet of Things • Cheap and ubiquitous coverage • Long range- up to 30 km line-of-sight • Low power- up to 10 years battery life • Carrier-grade
  11. 11. DATA AS A SERVICE • KotahiNet supplies open data feed for others to use • Removes complexity of dealing with hardware and networks • Replaces upfront cost with a monthly cost over contracted period • Sensors for most physical parameters available
  12. 12. COMPLETE SOLUTIONS / SERVICES • KotahiNet focuses on primary industries • Combines real-time data with domain expertise, experience and best practices • First service FruitSenz for olive growers of Martinborough. Will be extended to other fruits, regions, and countries
  13. 13. OPPORTUNITIES • More and lower cost sensors, more remotely • Research and innovation using real-time, big data • Full value chain, pan-industries view • Partnerships to operationalise R&D and innovation • Lead in creating autonomous sub-systems
