Sensor networks and Internet of Things platforms are now mainstream and underpin new approaches to a large section of research disciplines – environmental monitoring, land and water management, precision agriculture, building intelligence to name a few.

The IoT market place is alive with an expanding range of platforms and technologies, each with their associated merits, constraints, characteristics, maturity and likelihood of survival. Some are cellular carrier based, others are founded on the exciting new area of low power WAN’s (LPWAN) and others based on innovative approaches to satellite technology.

This session will offer a concise snapshot of IoT platforms and technologies, summarise the attributes of each, provide pointers to examples of related research activity, and touch on different methods to expose data to research workflows.
