Soil Monitoring with IoT – Smart Agriculture

Soil Monitoring with IoT uses technology to empower farmers and producers to maximise yield, reduce disease and optimise resources. IoT sensors can measure soil temperature, NPK, volumetric water content, photosynthetic radiation, soil water potential and soil oxygen levels. Data from the IoT sensors are then transmitted back to a central point (or the cloud) for analysis, visualisation and trend analysis. The resultant data can then be used to optimise farming operations, identify trends and make subtle adjustments to conditions to maximise crop yield and quality. The use of IoT in agriculture is known as Smart Agriculture (or Smart Farming), and IoT is a central component of Precision Farming. Read more

River level monitoring with IoT

The ability to remote monitor river and stream levels is possible with IoT technology. IoT allows you to monitor river levels in multiple locations accurately, and the data can be transmitted back wirelessly in real-time. In this blog post, we look at the different components and sensors required to monitor river levels.

Monitoring air pollution with Internet of Things (IoT)

With the emergence of air quality monitoring systems and IoT technologies, the availability of data relating to air quality and pollutants is increasing by the day. Air Quality is fast becoming a key factor for buyers during the home-buying process. While crime rates, broadband speeds and school performance remain important; air pollution levels are an essential consideration for the informed home buyer.  Read more

Monitoring air quality near schools

Using IoT to monitor air quality near schools

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

Monitoring the indoor environment with IoT

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.

Smart Parking Sensors – UK & Ireland

Smart Parking sensors are intelligent IoT nodes that are installed in parking spaces, or within road-side spaces, and are able to detect the presence of a parked vehicle. The sensors can then trigger events for use with intelligent parking apps or for intelligent parking enforcement. Manx Technology Group can design and supply Smart Parking solutions for parking applications in the UK or Ireland, including the sensors, LoRaWAN network, back-office systems and Smart Parking Apps.
