Put the kettle on and join us for a catch up on a different IoT related discussion topic each week while our staff work from home during the COVID-19 outbreak.

This session, led by CENSIS staff Cade Wells and Rachael Wakefield, will explore IoT and imaging systems as they apply to forestry and precision agriculture.

In forestry, this might mean remote systems that monitor growth in real time and assess tree health, support inventory and predict growth and quality. In an agriculture setting, the opportunities are equally vast, with a multitude of sensor-based systems available for monitoring soil, crops, animals and storage facilities – in fact, any element concerning the production of food can be supported with new IoT technologies. Drones and autonomous vehicles can be successfully used in both sectors, as can data analytics and visualisation.

How can I join?

The event will take place online using Zoom. Simply contact us by email if you’re interested and we’ll send you details of how to join in. You can join using audio or video, and you are very much encouraged to join in the conversation to add your own thoughts or ask questions.

Numbers are kept low for these events to ensure everyone can participate and ask questions, so don’t delay if you want to join us.
