Water metering and remote sensing: When one-way is the better way

Australia’s largest IoT project to date is currently generating in the order of over 3 million readings a day – of water meters. Brought to us by some of the same people who invented Wi-Fi, this system is unusual in that the communication backhaul is one way.

Water metering and remote sensing: When one-way is the better way

Presenter: Mark Halliwell, Business Development Manager, Taggle Systems

Description: As engineers come to grips with specifying the most appropriate Internet of Things solutions, a key consideration is the choice of communication system – usually a low power wide area network (LPWAN). The uninformed may assume that two-way LPWAN systems are better than one-way communication. However, many engineering applications such as water metering, do not usually require control of the device or even any communication back to the device. Moreover, two-way communication introduces complications around security and power management that should be considered.

This presentation explores the advantages of one-way sensing solutions and the refinements required to make them commercially and technically superior for certain applications.  Taggle Systems’ one-way sensing solution is showcased. Taggle was founded by some of the same people who developed the first high-speed Wi-Fi chips, commercializing the development work completed at CSIRO. Their aim was to cover solution gaps that Wi-Fi couldn’t address. Taggle currently manages over 3 million water meter readings per day, making it one of the largest remote sensing operators in Australia and arguably the most successful IoT implementation to date.

About the presenter: Mark has 20 year's experience in business development roles with systems associated with SCADA, industrial automation, communications, environmental, AMR and other remote monitoring systems. He has previously worked for companies such as Advantech, Halytech and Schneider Electric.

When: 12pm (NSW time) 1 May 2018. The presentation will last 30 minutes followed by 30 minutes question time.
