While aquaculture and IoT have exponentially grown in the world in the last years, the combination of both domains still remains at its early stage. Although water monitoring is at the center of the aquaculture activity, its complexity can often push fish farmers to neglect it. We believe that developing user-friendly 5G-IoT solutions for fish farming will lead to a new era of connected, responsible and efficient aquaculture. IoT for aquaculture needs to be smart, affordable, easy to deploy, reliable and highly efficient. Artificial Intelligence processing key data given by 5G-IoT can also provide new services addressing new challenges facing aquaculture (e.g be efficient but green). Video is much demanded on remote sites for security reason (eg poaching) but also for advance video processing bringing more information in aquaculture. We believe 5G and Aquaculture can represent a big opportunity.
EGM provides scientific and engineering services for IoT market from sensors to data analytics using experience from about 10 international research projects as well as standardisation involvement in IoT since 2010.
EGM has developed an extended knowledge in IoT value chain, starting from a number of international research projects applied to vertical fields, such as in Smart cities, Intelligent transport systems (ITS), Smart water Monitoring (H2020 PROTEUS : Delivering the new generation of sensors for rain & waste water, drink and waster water networks) but also in Aquaculture (H2020 WAZIUP: Design of a low-cost smart buoy for aquaculture field, integrating communications technologies and edge computing; H2020 IMPAQT providing Data Aggregation System in Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture; H2020 iFishIENCi where EGM develop IA algorithm for fishes smart feeding). EGM is currently involved in 10 H2020 projects. see list here http://www.eglobalmark.com/project-list.
