"Innovation keeps us competitive. It keeps us at the cutting edge. It creates jobs.
And it will keep our standard of living high."
Commonwealth of Australia, Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, National Innovation and Science Agenda
Sense-T was a first mover in the internet of things and big data in Tasmania. Over the past five years we have pioneered data led translational research and innovation in the areas of agriculture, logistics, environmental management and data science, as well as sensor manufacturing.
We have built a state of the art spatio-temporal data platform and are building an advanced sensor manufacturing facility. This capability allows real time information delivery of relevant data that was previously inaccessible. Tasmania is now ideally placed to offer end to end IOT and data solutions. By creating a digital view of the state, we are creating tools to solve practical problems and make better decisions.
The environment we have created in Tasmania has enabled us to trial and test new ideas, business models, and importantly, create demonstrated impact and results through our data driven projects.
We are now in a position to transfer this cutting edge research and innovation into the next stage of realisation. We want to keep this momentum growing and delivering even greater impact for industry, government and community past 2016. Sense-T is committed to making global networks, leading expertise and commercialisation pathways accessible to those who work with us.
With more than twenty research projects due for completion at the end of this year, we are moving into the next exciting phase of demand driven research and innovation.
To use Tasmania as an environment for data led transformation.
To bring together data and domain scientists, accessible data sources and real-time sensing technology to solve demand driven practical challenges and develop real-world solutions.
To improve decision making for industry, government and community by using data to enhance economic, environmental and social value.
