Queensland Government Selects Grey Innovation for Great Barrier Reef Project

The Queensland Government are funding industry to work with the Queensland public sector to develop technology solutions for identified challenges through the Advance Queensland Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) initiative. Grey Innovation has been selected to take part in the feasibility stage for the development of an affordable fine-scale water quality monitoring technology for the Great Barrier Reef Catchment. This challenge was nominated by the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection and supports the Queensland Government’s Reef Water Quality Program to protect the health of the Great Barrier Reef. The Queensland government was impressed by the solution proposed by Grey Innovation, which addresses a global water quality monitoring challenge. Grey Innovation are excited to be a part of this program. For the full announcement, please see click here.

SENSE-T

12 NOVEMBER 2013
We are excited to announce the commencement of field trials of the Sense-T system. Trials are underway to test telemetry and system configuration of the prototype commercial sensing systems designed here at Grey Innovation. The systems are designed to be cost-effective, quick to install and easy to operate.
Trial systems are being installed at five sites across Tasmania:

    •    Pooley Wines Vineyard
    •    Josef Chromy Vineyard
    •    Brown Brothers Kayena Vineyard
    •    Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture's (TIA's) Elliott Farm
    •    Dunion Range

The next stage will commence early next year with trials on up to 30 vineyards and farms and on-farm testing of the prototype app.

GREY INNOVATION PARTNERS WITH EPA AND DIUS AS PART OF BROADBAND-ENABLED INNOVATION PROGRAM (BEIP)

22 SEPTEMBER 2013
Grey Innovation along with DiUS, the EPA and the DSE are using high capacity broadband to enable pervasive environmental sensing in air quality applications. With funding from BEIP, the project team are developing and trialing air quality sensors within regional Vicotria to enhance the EPA's current air quality monitoring network.
The developed system will support the EPA in making timely and informed decisions about pollution.

GREY INNOVATION PROTOTYPE SENSORS TO BE USED IN INTENSIVE SENSE-T FIELD TRIAL

17 SEPTEMBER 2013
Grey Innovation is a development and commercialisation partner of Sense-T. Sense-T is a world-first economy-wide intelligent sensor network that integrates numerous data sources to give agriculture business, governments and communities the tools to make better decisions.
Grey Innovation has recently completed a build of several sensor prototypes which will be demonstrated and tested in an upcoming field trial. The field trial is due to commence in October at several Tasmanian Vineyards and Dairy Farms.Grey Innovation is confident that the data and learning's from this trial will fulfill essential steps towards the commercial system development.
Sense-T recently thanked Grey Innovation for their expert work in developing a fully functional system for this trial. "New Sensor prototypes ready for final R & D. Trials start soon on Tas vineyard & dairy farms. Thanks Grey Innovation" @sensingtasmania
Watch this space for updates from the field trial.

SENSE-T ATTRACTS INTERNATIONAL BACKING AND $10 MILLION FOR TASMANIAN RESEARCH

02 MAY 2013
A $10 million international research collaboration led by Tasmania's Sense-T, which is based at the University of Tasmania (UTAS), may provide answers to people on where their food comes from, how it was produced and if it’s safe.
Sense-T's Pathways to Market project has been granted $2.5 million from the Australian Research Council under the Industrial Transformation Research Hub scheme. This adds to the $7.6 million Sense-T already raised for the project from industry and research organisations.
The Pathways to Market project will initially focus on two food products and track their distribution through the supply chain and into Asia. Researchers will delve into what consumers want to know about where their food comes from and how it affects what they buy. This information will be available to producers, processors and distributors to help them bring new products to market.
Grey Innovation is proud to be a development and commercialisation partner with Sense T.
