Listed below are the finalists for the inaugural Australian IoT Awards. Thank you to all those who entered for submitting such high-quality entries, and congratulations to the finalists.
Over the next several days, IoT Hub will profile each of the finalists and provide a greater insight into their IoT projects.
Judging is currently underway and the winners of each category – and the overall Australian IoT Project of the Year 2017 – will be announced on June 8.
The finalists and their projects by category are:
Davey Water Products
A cloud-based system that provides its customers with real-time connectivity to their water usage and pumping system performance
A hyper-converged platform that combines the sensor data collected by its livestock management system with its other infrastructure to enable improved product quality through efficient management and increased productivity
A cloud-based platform that collects real-time water condition data from sensors and converts it into accurate weather and water quality predictions for the oyster farming industry in Australia.
A system that uses real-time, wireless monitoring and intelligent personnel and machinery detection capabilities to improve the safety of pinning activities of Stevedores.
Sensor-equipped beer kegs that allow brewers to track their location, monitor environmental conditions to ensure freshness of contents, record keg handling conditions, and track the fill level to proactively schedule replacements.
A system deployed at a device manufacturer’s premises to ensure the quality and field readiness for the devices being built.
An advanced smart metering network that provides granular and near-real-time usage data of power network endpoint devices for residences and small businesses.
Professional Services Industry
Environmental Monitoring Solutions
Provides real-time insight into fuel levels and pump equipment operations for petrol stations.
Australian National University
A network of intelligent meters to collect and manage data relating to the university’s water usage.
Get York Coffee
A cloud-based system that combines sensors that monitor the internal temperatures of the café’s refrigeration units with a notification system via a mobile app.
Education & Research
Endeavour Veterinary Ecology
A telemetry system that monitors the location and activity of at-risk koala populations via low-profile collars and a high-penetration RF network.
NSW Smart Sensing Network
An air quality monitoring system that uses laser sensors to detect pollutant particles of various sizes in highly populated areas.
University of Wollongong
A system that monitors the stability and landslide susceptibility of areas of land, and the hazard and the associated risks to urban and major transport infrastructure.
Wyndham City Council
Providing council stakeholders with the ability to inspect and analyse future city works and obtain insights into existing city infrastructure using mixed reality technology.
Ipswich City Council
A LoRaWAN network for the Ipswich region, that will pave the way for its smart city plans for connected infrastructure.
A project that used internet-enabled energy monitors in 300 residences to provide occupants with real-time insights into their energy usage and costs to prove the hypothesis that greater visibility of energy usage leads to usage reduction.
Waverley Municipal Council
A network of internet-connected smart bins that automatically compact internal garbage and send alerts via SMS and email when they’re full.
