Manx Technology Group supplies Air Quality Monitoring and IoT technology to Liverpool John Moores University for use as part of the LCR Sustainable Green Travel Corridors Project (also called LCR SUD). LCR SUD is a £16.7m project until 2021 and part of a Liverpool City Region-wide initiative to encourage more cycling and walking. Read more
At Manx Technology Group, we regularly work with data sets in areas such as financial services, retail, security and IoT (internet of things). Where required, we collate a variety of public datasets to support our work. Our latest side project (for fun/interest) involved analysing the vehicle registration data of the Isle of Man, using data from Isle of Man Government (available under the Open Government Licence).
MTG is looking to work with Isle of Man farmers to test agricultural drones as part of a series of tech trials. The drones will be used to assess the growth and health of crops including oilseed rape, potatoes, and wheat. The drone trial will feature alongside other trials including soil monitoring, weather stations and the latest generation of NPK IoT sensors. Read more
A recent report from campaign group Mums for Lungs and environmental charity Possible has highlighted the impact of air pollution on children. Pollution intensifies around schools at drop-off times, with NO2 levels up to 5x higher than usual. IoT sensors can help education leaders, schools and councils measure air quality, particulates and NO2 levels. The data from these sensors can then be used to educate, inform and accelerate positive change. Read more
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. Like with all wireless devices, LoRaWAN devices need to be installed at a location within the range of the LoRaWAN gateway, but that doesn’t always guarantee a quality signal. Read more
Many businesses use WiFi to provide convenient, wireless access to the corporate network – but even with a network key, have you ever considered how secure the solution is? We look at the differences between WPA-Personal and WPA-Enterprise, and highlight why your business should really be using WPA-Enterprise. Read more
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.
