Case Study: Myriota
Myriota founded in 2015, seeks to revolutionise machine-to-machine (M2M) communications across a range of industries, capitalising on the University of South Australia’s telecommunications research. Commercialising new technologies developed by UniSA’s Institute for Telecommunications Research, Myriota Pty Ltd uses low earth orbit satellites to provide two-way data connectivity for remote sensors and devices.
Industry analysts have estimated that global M2M revenue will grow to $1.2 trillion by 2022.
Dr Alex Grant, Chief Executive Officer of Myriota, says these services have a range of applications which can benefit ecosystem management, monitoring of climates, defence, national security, maritime, mining, agriculture and more. UniSA Vice Chancellor, Professor David Lloyd describes the formation of Myriota Pty Ltd as one of the most significant industry and university collaborations to take place in Australia.
