New Zealand farmers and companies are starting to use Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, data analytics and automation to decrease impact on New Zealand rivers, a leading national tech expert says.
In countries, right across the world the IoT devices are being used to help clean up water, New Zealand IoT Alliance executive director Kriv Naicker says.
Irrigation is by far the largest use of water in New Zealand, making up 65.9 percent of water use between 2013 and 2014, the Ministry for the Environment says.
The substantial growth of the country’s umbrella tech organisation NZTech is indicative of the rapid expansion of the nation’s fastest growing industry, says its chief executive Graeme Muller.
Cities will become safer and more desirable to live in when the internet of things (IoT) takes hold a research study report says.
A new research study has identified agri-business as one of the best opportunities to use the internet of things (IoT) for economic advantage in New Zealand, mainly because of the contribution that agriculture already makes to the Kiwi economy.
It is predicted that within three years 100 percent of all effective IoT efforts will be supported by cognitive or artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, a landmark New Zealand IoT Alliance study says.
The Internet of Things – Accelerating a Connected New Zealand was launched on 29 June in Wellington by the New Zealand IoT Alliance. Read the Executive Summary or the full research report.
An historic and landmark national research study estimates the roll out of IoT (internet of things) is likely to produce a benefit for the New Zealand economy of billions of dollars. The study found that just across a mere nine common IoT applications the potential net benefit over 10 years could be $2.2 billion in present value terms.
New Zealand is well positioned for the Internet of Things (IoT), such as fast fibre, however a national tech leader urged for the country to do better.
Future tech realities are beginning to change the face of how New Zealanders operate in their daily lives – at home and work, and coming research results will help shape the nation’s future, NZTech chief executive Graeme Muller says.
Communications Minister Simon Bridges welcomed the launch of the New Zealand IoT Alliance on Friday at The Grid, saying it would help harness the potential of IoT.
