Mobile mental health diagnostics, low cost tags for tracking cows and a high tech encrypter are among five innovative projects to win support from the inaugural Telstra External Research and Development Program. A six month judging process was involved to look for Australian research projects that can provide benefits to industry, business and consumers.

“Australia was the birthplace of extraordinary innovations such as the black box flight recorder, the cochlear implant and solar hot water and at Telstra we want to help contribute to innovation through our new R&D program,” Telstra CTO Dr Hugh Bradlow said.

More than 220 submissions had been reviewed. Here’s an overview of the five selected programs.
