Everyone knows about Australia's world leading #agriculture exports. But lesser known is the potential of the #agtech (#agriculturetechnology ) potential to bring more sustainable, scalable, relevant food and resources to the world! AgTech a is more scalable export, and less dependant on the size of population or your geographical location, which puts us clever Aussies at a huge advantage. It’s more sustainable and economic to ship software around than fresh produce or livestock!
Technology has increasingly become a significant part of the creative process from art to sign language, all the way to architecture. Technology has enabled us to communicate with people that don't speak the same language, enabling new ways to express us through innovative art and share it with the world. This blog is written for both hobbyists and techies.
If you have an environmental sensor set up in your home, office, farm etc and want to check the temperature, you don’t want to have to physically go out and do a sensor reading every time.
Developing with the Internet of Things is fun. It’s challenging. It’s frustrating at times.
But it’s also an opportunity to change the world with code! And you don’t need 5 years R&D or an engineering degree to do it. In this blog I’ll go through some quick weekend hackathon projects you can put together to bring your IoT idea to life.
Consider that the Internet of Things is made up of 3 key elements:
As developers ourselves, we understand that focus is a key to success. We’ve spoken to IoT developers who have told us that the biggest value Telstra provides is the coverage and depth of the network, so we're focusing on that.
That’s why from 15th July 2021 we’ll be retiring the IoT Marketplace on TelstraDev and ending the Developer Kit trial.
Where we've come from...
When TelstraDev launched the IoT Marketplace in 2019, we wanted to make it as easy as possible to get up and running with Telstra’s IoT network.
I woke up one morning in January 2020 and discovered that the air quality in Melbourne had dropped to hazardous levels from bushfire smoke. This hazardous air quality was extremely concerning to my wife and I with our newborn.
When developing an IoT solution for your business, coverage and access to a reliable network is critical! If you're using Telstra's mobile network to connect your IoT devices in a regional area, these tips from our Commercial Engineering Executive might help optimise your access to Australia's largest IoT network. With mobile phones, you can simply move them to another location to improve signal, but for static IoT devices you need to get that coverage sweet spot from the get go! - Michelle Howie, Developer Advocate
