About the IoT Awards

The IoT Awards are the official awards program of IoT Alliance Australia (IoTAA), the peak Australian IoT industry body, and IoT Hub.

The awards recognise that real-time data is increasingly important to Australian industry, government and citizens. It’s assisting our response to crises and enabling industry to compete internationally. 

The 2020 IoT Awards attracted more than 100 entrants from government, industry and academia. Nominated projects included data sharing initiatives by local governments, projects that used IoT to monitor people movement in Melbourne and Perth during the pandemic, a Wi-Fi rollout encompassing hundreds of NSW Health sites, and a university program that aimed to change education about cyber-physical systems. Watch the full 2020 Awards presentation here 

This year the IoT Awards will include new categories for achievements in IoT interoperability, security and data use. The awards will also place a greater emphasis on diversity and inclusion.
