Building an Internet connected world that connects not only computers but also interfaces to the physical world to produce cyber-physical systems has been a long-held dream of researchers. Very recently this concept branded as the ‘Internet of Things’ or IoT has now hit the agenda of business and the public unconsciousness and will undoubtedly be a major driver of applications in coming years. With the dual requirements producing more and better food for the world’s growing population and the need for increased sustainability, agriculture may become one of the most significant applications for IoT. This talk will address these challenges.
