The World Economic Forum has published its report entitled Net Zero Carbon Cities – An Integrated Approach. The report sets out several opportunities to help a city transition to a net-zero carbon position, many of which rely on digitisation and technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT).
University College of Man (UCM) and Manx Technology Group (MTG) are collaborating on a range of innovative projects involving Internet of Things (IoT) and sensor solutions. The partnership involves MTG working with UCM to develop, deploy and test IoT solutions on the Isle of Man. Read more
By adopting IoT technology, cannabis and hemp growers can optimise their growing and production processes. IoT soil, environmental and smart sensors can help improve crop output and improve yields. Learn what’s involved with deploying IoT in your business and also understand the value it can deliver.
Network testing is paramount in ensuring your LoRaWAN network succeeds in providing the best signal coverage and quality for your end devices.

We look at the differences between WPA-Personal and WPA-Enterprise, and highlight why your business should really be using WPA-Enterprise. Read more
IoT sensors offer an inexpensive way of monitoring the indoor environment; with battery-powered sensors able to monitor temperature, humidity, CO2, room occupancy and light levels. Due to Covid restrictions, many of you will be working home like me. To demonstrate the effective use of the technology, I installed a single IoT sensor in my home office to highlight the different use cases and value of IoT. I then look at some applications of IoT in healthcare, business and the public sector.
Agricultural technology (agritech) aims to improve food production efficiency using technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), AI and Robotics. In this post, I explain the different pillars of agritech and highlight three key technologies.
As retail businesses begin to reopen following lockdown and government restrictions, many companies are looking at technology and IoT solutions to help comply with new regulations, while also safeguarding their staff and customers. IoT technology can assist retailers in a post-covid-19 era and give shoppers peace of mind as they return to the high street.
Retailers and supermarkets have introduced new “one-in-one-out” rules designed to enforce social distancing and limit the spread of coronavirus. IoT and people counting technology can be used to automate the process of one-in-one-out, therefore, reducing cost and improving safety.
