Smart Ear Tag for Livestock

Indicative Funding
$1,500,000 over 4 years
Summary
CeresTag is investing in the development of a smart ear tag for livestock to enable near real-time geo-location and health monitoring. The developed ear tag will be compliant with the current NLIS identification system and cost only marginally more than existing tags. This technology will revolutionise the industry through enhanced animal welfare, improved land management practices and increased profitability. It will form the starting point of block chain traceability that will underpin the continued success of this important component of the Australian economy and help maintain the premium status of Australian livestock products.

A low power flexible sensor network system for viticulture

Indicative Funding
$41,136 over 4 years
Summary
While many researchers are focusing on wireless sensor networks as the core component of on-farm sensor networks, these systems suffer from high maintenance due to the number of units required, each with their own batteries and charging systems. For viticulture, where sensor strings can be run down rows, I propose a wired system capable of driving 1000's of sensors from a single sensor master. There is a gap in the types of sensors currently available in viticulture research and routine that the proposed development would meet.
