Overview of Research Projects

Who we are

Who we work with

Fourteen projects share funding of $6 million from Sense-T to use applied sensor technology and data science to solve practical problems, support economic growth, and help industries across Tasmania to improve their productivity, efficiency and sustainability.

With industry and research partners contributing their own funding and in-kind contributions, the total value of research being undertaken to support innovation and economic growth in Tasmania exceeds $11 million.

Researchers from the University of Tasmania, CSIRO, government and industry are working closely with end-users to support innovation in areas such as:

Sense-T's Industry Research Projects are part of four work packages being funded by the Australian Government, with $13 million allocated to the University of Tasmania for the entire program under the Tasmanian Jobs and Growth Plan.

The projects commenced in April 2015 and will be completed in December 2016.

They build on the achievements of Sense-T Stage 1 research projects, undertaken in partnership with the CSIRO, which helped farmers to solve real world challenges and improve decision making in the areas of beef and dairy, viticulture, aquaculture and water management.
