  1. World's first NB-IoT based Smart Street Lighting system enabled in the Greek city of Patras serves as a shining example of the infinite potential the Internet of Things can bring to urban areas, as well as the additional benefits of the innovative NB-IoT technology for smart city applications. Deutsche Telekom Group’s subsidiary in Greece, COSMOTE has implemented a Smart City pilot based on Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) technology in cooperation with the municipality of Patras. The joint project will offer the citizens and visitors of Patras smart parking and smart lighting solut

They are looking for the 10 best innovative startups solving problems in Energy Efficiency, Energy Independence, Digitisation and Analytics. During their intense 3-month accelerator program, selected smart energy startups will receive hands-on mentorship from over 100 industry experts, free office space, seed funding, and access to a global network of investors with the ultimate goal of scaling their businesses and becoming industry-leading companies. Applications for the January 2018 program are now open. If you are
  5. Geoff, this is a matter that should be considered in the context of the Applied IoT Engineering Community strategy. What activities, events and groups do we want to support, promote and/or participate. It will ultimately also come down to availability of resources (people, financial) to execute this part of the strategy, if adopted.

  7. Hi Ryan, Thank you for posting. Very interesting information on machine vision and the Internet of Things. I guess there are countless possibilities for security, monitoring, safety (and many more) applications in a Smart Cities context for this kind of approach. The Community would welcome such a presentation.

They found that capabilities to analyse data not keeping pace with the rate at which data is created. Here is a link to the full media release:http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prAP42238817
  10. Concise summary of how the decision making process has evolved to rely on data analytics and how the IoT is becoming a major contributor to what is now coined as Advanced Data Analytics. The focus has shifted from statistical and mathematical analysis methods for decision making to very large, unstructured and fast-moving data. These characteristics of Advanced Data Analytics are summarised as the 5 V's: Volume - Variety - Veracity - Velocity - Value. Another major contributor to this shift is the convergence of Operational Technology (OT) with Information Technology (IT). Machines, equip
  11. Big Data can be very powerful but unless there is a clear business problem to solve, yes, it will always be the case of "garbage in - garbage out". Data analytics provides the ability to identify possible trends and patterns in the data collected that may not seem otherwise obvious. But only someone which knows the business and its processes very well can understand if any of these trends and patterns are of any business value to the organisation. IDC recently did a research asking: Is Big Data losing steam or is Australia yet to taste success? They found that capabilities to analyse

I recently (14 December) attended the Grattan Institute and Melbourne Energy institute Energy Futures 2016 panel discussion which coincided with the release of the Preliminary Report of the Independent Review into the Future Security of the National Electricity Market, Commonwealth of Australia 2016 led by Australia’s Chief Scientist Alan Finkel. Chapter 2 of this Report talks about Consumers Driving Change and makes reference to Digital meters (and the Internet of Things) (pp.16-17): Digital meters, the 'Internet of Things' and energy management software can help consumers trade, t
  13. Anyone involved in delivering technology to Councils may want to have a look at the Australian Government $50m Smart Cities & Suburbs programme. Submissions close on 20 January 2017. Details at: https://cities.dpmc.gov.au/smart-cities-program
  14. Proposals on digital and data solutions for local communities are being encouraged in the Federal Government’s $50 million Smart Cities and Suburbs Program. Draft guidelines for the program were released Tuesday at the Smart Cities Expo in Sydney by Assistant Minister for Cities Angus Taylor, with stakeholders invited to provide feedback on the guidelines. Assistant Minister Taylor said the program would support projects which put citizens at the centre. The Smart Cities and Suburbs Program aims to deploy new ideas not yet seen in Australia including international smart cities t
