Annie Brox came to Australia in 2013 and established Origo in 2015. As the founder and managing director of ag-tech company Origo.farm, she aims to develop a reliable remote location, whole-of-farm connectivity solution that can be rolled out across other remote properties. The Origo-manufactured device picks up signals from weather stations and moisture probes to automatically generate moisture maps, aggregate data on temperature, relative humidity, rainfall and Delta T conditions (for spraying), along with an app for remote access to the data. This allows the monitoring of weather station information and checking temperatures and wind conditions from a remote location. Ms Brox had a career spanning over 20 years in the information communications technology industry, including as founder and managing director of an internet security business. She also spent eight years as director and program manager of the United Nations’ environmental program, developing and implementing a global satellite-based internet network.
