Following the MOU signing between WSAA and IoTAA, a new collaborative opportunity is being explored through the development of the IoT Water Hub.
The initial concept is for an industry partnership IoT system of real time monitoring and control to help the delivery of a secure water future, increased diversity of supply, enhanced ecosystems and engaged communities (http://www.iotwater.com.au/). WSAA has been working with the founding members, South East Water, Melbourne Water, Monash University and Melbourne University to broaden industry participation. This has included linking with IoTAA and the Vic Intelligent Water Network (VicIWN) to re-launch the project through a showcase event, on the 27 May.
IoTAA and VIC IWN are keen to support the project development and be involved in the delivery of this initiative. It offers a unique opportunity for collaboration between several key water sector groups and the private sector in a way that will enhance the uptake of innovative IoT solutions. The showcase is an opportunity to assess, confirm case studies and commit to building the next phase of the IoT Water Hub. It will also review the process to date, including the formation of the IoT Water Hub. There will be a presentation on links with the draft National Research Priorities Agenda and WSAA’s Digital Reference Framework, and a case study demonstrating the immense opportunity in the further development of IoT application through a focused research program.
Following the showcase the next steps will be determined through this new cross industry partnership.
