SK Telecom Starts Pilot Operation of IoT-based Fish Farm Management System | Korea IT Times


In general, each eel farm has twenty to sixty water tanks, each measuring 6m in diameter. Eel farming is a high value-added business, but the farming requires farmers to arrange human resources to manually observe several indicators of each tank all the time including water temperature, dissolved oxygen and pH (every two hours and six hours for the young fish and grown ones respectively) as even minor changes in the environment such as a sudden temperature change, oxygen deficiency or water pollution are fatal to eels.

Smart lighting: shining a light on what consumers really want | Media Network | Guardian Professional

.. smart LED is not the same as Li-Fi (light fidelity) – another emerging technology, which uses lightwaves to send data at faster speeds than traditional Wi-Fi.

“This is about sending information from a luminaire to a recipient via the X/Y co-ordinates in a grid.”

“It’s an intelligent LED lighting system. It is not looking at making bandwidth available.”
