Home Internet of Things SA firm Myriota wins award at IoT summit in California

South Australian company Myriota has been recognised at the Internet of Things World 2017 conference in Silicon Valley, receiving an award for being the Best Industrial IoT Start-Up Company.

The awards were decided out after more than 100 start-ups made their pitches to a panel of Silicon Valley and international IoT experts at the conference.

The conference was held in Santa Clara, California, from 16 to 18 May. There were more than 11,000 attendees, 250 exhibitors, and more than 100 start-ups, making it one of the larger events of its kind globally.

Based in Adelaide, the company has developed a low-power, low-cost, satellite IoT communications platform. This makes transmission of small data from remote locations economically viable for a new class of sensors and machines.

To do this, tiny low-powered transmitters that communicate directly with a constellation of low earth orbit satellites are used.

Messages are decoded by patented receiver software and this provides scalable ultra low-cost connectivity for industries like agriculture, mining, maritime, utilities monitoring, transport, logistics and asset tracking.

Myriota chief executive Dr Alex Grant said: “We are honoured to be formally recognised by industry leaders at the largest IoT summit in the world.

"There is huge verified global demand for cost-effective remote connectivity and we are pleased the judges saw the value of Myriota’s technology."
