Explanatory guides/webinars

  • An overview of the basic framework. e.g. What happens after the front end data is collected. [An overall framework of IOT, spelled out in basic technical detail, i.e. the Body of Knowledge Framework]
  • Reference guide to common acronyms. [Glossary with simply English explanations, part of wiki?]
  • IOT for other engineers [A plain English version assuming no ICT knowledge whatsoever]
  • Commercial guidance - what are current models and why aren't they suitable for the new technologies. + How others justify investment towards IOT technologies and what is happening in Australia  [1)How to build a business case, and 2) How to select the right technology set]
  • Guide to IoT standards and protocols
  • Examples/Case studies of applications [1) to spark imagination of what is possible, and 2) Demystifies IOT]
  • Expert forums where i can get in touch with people involved in IOT rollouts [Links to more specialist forums?]
  • Industry/discipline specific application guides (electrical dist x2, power generation x2, asset mgt, mining,civil, geotechnical, mechanical  [What would this look like? What is different between industries?]
  • Guide to relevant grants supporting innovation using IOT


Advanced tools

  • Risk assessment methodologies needed when complex technologies are integrated. [Risk engineering guide for IOT]
  • How IOT can be secure and be accessible for public development [Guide to security issues]
  • Rasperry Pi or Arduino interfacing to environmental monitoring sensors and ("conventional") control systems, and expanding from there. [??]
  • IOT Testing Lab for engineers to play and test solutions

Product technology selection

“IoT is so varied it can be daunting finding the right thing (product or service).” + “Access to high level but also detailed information about current technologies, products and challenges.

  • Low priced self data analytics [Guides to specific segments of the IOT framework] 
  • Guides on wireless/satellite communications and power consumption.
  • A directory of product / service providers. [Integrated guide, showing how providers focus on different parts of the IOT framework and different industries]
