As New Zealand continues to respond to the challenges of COVID-19 and prepares its transition to a low-carbon economy, Spark has today launched a new Innovation Studio that will support Kiwi businesses to identify how emerging technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G can help them adapt, transform and grow.The Spark Innovation Studio will be the first place in New Zealand where businesses can test technology solutions on all networks (4G, 5G, Cat M1, NB IoT, LoRaWAN) and co-create their own solutions alongside some of the best technology engineers and experts New Zealand has to offer.To bring this zone to life, fast growing New Zealand IoT solutions provider, Adroit, showcases its recent innovation in partnership with the local aquaculture industry, a data-buoy nicknamed ‘Murray’ that monitors the quality of the water.With an ambition to progress their net carbon reduction targets by reducing logistics freight, Toyota New Zealand has harnessed 5G to create an immersive VR experience for customers’ buying journey, virtually bringing thousands of car models and customization options to prospective buyers through a VR headset.
