Session 5 3 catherine caruana-mca manus giant ideas

  1. 1. IoT in Smart Cities Catherine Caruana-McManus
  2. 2. The IoT opportunity Potential global economic impact of IoT applications of $11.1 trillion (USD) per year in 2025. (McKinsey & Company 2015) $116 billion of potential upside to the Australian economy by 2025 6.4 billion internet-connected devices in 2016 20.8 billion by 2020.
  3. 3. Drivers of IoT • Cost of internet-connected sensors is coming down • Significant investment into IoT by vendors • Major acquisitions e.g Google buys Nest Intel acquiring Basis • Expanded internet connectivity • High adoption of smartphones, tablets & “remotes” • Stronger community awareness through wearables • In Australia, Telstra LPWAN trial with City of Melbourne The global & connected citizen A global citizen is being part of a digitally connected world community & whose actions contribute to building this community’s values & practices.
  4. 4. Intelligent Asset Management Smart Grids & Energy Management EVs & Connected Vehicles Water Metering & Management Smart Living & Building Automation “You want to be able to monitor, measure, and control your assets… to gain better outcomes.” IoT in smart cities
  5. 5. Intelligent asset management • Fact: IoT is being deployed in one of the Australia’s largest maintenance services companies • Remote condition monitoring & predictive maintenance in outback locations • Use Cases • Water pipe leak detection • Security fence monitoring • Environmental condition monitoring • Water tank level monitoring • Deployment of the latest IoT technology achieved: • higher reliability (happier customers) • more timely & efficient maintenance interventions • improved plant visibility & information transfer for centralised decision making.
  6. 6. Driverless cars in Adelaide Australian Driverless Vehicle Initiative Commenced November 2015 Consortia includes: ARRB Group, South Australian Government, Volvo, Bosch, Flinders & Carnegie Mellon Universities, Telstra & Cohda Wireless.
  7. 7. Digital urban farming • Driven by costs, safety & security of food • Smart living, clean & green • Near real-time sensor data directly from the “field” • Increase yield efficiency & transparency of food origin, genetics & “shelf-life” • Hydroponics & LED lighting for leafy greens that can be grown in buildings, greenhouses or shipping containers e.g freight farms
  8. 8. Public IoT networks The Things Network – Amsterdam People can connect their “things” without the use of Wi-Fi, 3G or Bluetooth Low power, long range connectivity using radio/wireless spectrum Crowd-sourced use cases • Boat water leak & sinking • WeShareSolar • Bicycle tracking LoRaWAN technology • Two-way communication • Global open standard • Encryption at the node, gateway & application layers
  9. 9. Community networks • Key Meshed partnerships • • Amsterdam Smart Cities • University of Wollongong • Universities need to provide low cost, low power, long range internet connectivity for • students & researchers IoT app development • smart campus & asset management • Local Government Authorities need to provide low cost, low power, long range internet connectivity for • Smart asset management • Monitoring parks, gardens, streets, marinas, LED street lighting, smart parking • Rate payer app development & community engagement
  10. 10. IoT for smart cities is critical….. • IoT will be the foundation for a Smarter Australia • new jobs in new industries • increased productivity & GDP growth • IP development & exports • Key to “unlock” the economic potential & environmental & social outcomes for regional cities & rural towns • Help “cash strapped” local councils to better manage their assets (roads, energy, water, emergency management) • Support “crowd-sourced” innovation, not just the big end of town. • 915Mhz band will be as important as 2.4Ghz was for WiFi Spectrum Allocation Harmonisation of standards Open v Proprietary Privacy & Security
  11. 11. IoT Alliance • Sectoral Engagement Workstream • Develop sectoral IoT advancement & alignment with key sectors: • Energy, Water, Transport, Agriculture & Smart Cities • Strong involvement from supply side but keen to engage with industry bodies & demand side. • Government Industry Growth Centres • Infrastructure Australia • Peak Industry bodies • Utilities, transport & logistics, food supply chain Other workgroups include: • Open Data • Spectrum • Security • IoT Start-Up & Innovation • Collaborative Australian IoT Industry • New members are most welcome!
