Message from the Director

We are excited to announce that we have undertaken the initial deployment of the Sense-T Data Platform.

We have already begun to collect data from various sources including the Sense-T Industry Research projects.  Development on the platform will continue through 2016 in collaboration with CSIRO.

Prof Jack SinghSense-T has also been making fantastic progress in the many industry research projects we are undertaking. 

We are currently working on projects in agriculture, aquaculture, tourism, health, financial markets and freight and logistics to create decision support tools using real time sensor data.

Some highlights include the launch of the AirRater app which displays GPS based real time air quality data, including a pollen count.  

The app uses machine learning technology to map respiratory conditions reported by the user against air quality data to determine potential triggers.  

Alerts are then delivered to the user when conditions fall outside the calculated range of tolerance.

Our tourism project is set to begin tracking tourists early in the New Year with the official launch of the project later this week.  

The project, with the help of local ICT company Ionata, has developed an app to track tourist movements around the State to provide unprecedented insights into where particular groups of visitors go, how they move around the State, and what influences their decisions.

Sense-T is proud to be working with many local Tasmanian businesses.  

Local sensor manufacturer Definium Technologies has been undertaking an Industry Research project into irrigation flow monitoring technology, and is also supporting sensor development in several other industry research projects.  

Sense-T has also established a panel of ICT providers, with four of the six panel members being Tasmanian ICT firms, to support our research projects in the visualisation of data.  

These are just some of the examples of how Sense-T is engaging with local businesses to deliver high tech solutions to assist the Tasmanian community.

With many of the research projects moving towards completion at the end of 2016, we are looking forward to an exciting year ahead.

Wishing you all a very safe and happy holiday season,

Professor Jugdutt (Jack) Singh

Director of Research, Sense-T
