We created the concept for ConnectedParks at the Telstra and City of Melbourne IOT challenge for Smart Cities. In the week long challenge, we were tasked with solving a real problem for the City of Melbourne built upon Telstra's new 5G low-power networking technology. We designed and implemented ConnectedParks prototype hardware and data analytics platform for harnessing the power of open data initiatives together with our sensors. The idea went on to become the Grand Prize Winner of the challenge.
ConnectedParks has evolved from an idea into a product, and discussions with potential partners begin, with the intention of conducting a long-term pilot rollout to select parks in order to further refine the platform.
SmartCity EcoSystems came into life to realise the idea of a Smart and Connected city environment, not just green spaces. It was at this point where Michael and Yang also joined the team to increase the pace towards a deploy-ready product. The team engaged with some local councils and received a great deal of support and interest.
SmartCity EcoSystems has successfully lodged an Australian Complete Patent on the systems and methods in November 2017.
City of Prospect required an alternative account of pedestrian traffic along Prospect Road to validate their newly deployed public Wifi analytics platform. We deployed sensors along this route and performed counting for a 3-month period, successfully delivering a correlation formula for their WiFi systems and validating the analytics platform with pedestrian traffic ground truth. Project started in December 2017 and was delivered in May 2018.
ConnectedParks will continue to grow its products and services, and continually roll out our platform to new cities and towns all over Australia, and internationally.
so we can bring ConnectedParks to your parks or playgrounds.
