Pilot Projects

We’re wasting no time making our Smart City vision a reality. Ipswich City Council has established three Council-owned and managed testbed locations across the city — Robell Domain, North Ipswich Reserve and Rosewood Showgrounds.

These locations support new technology and platforms to be implemented, assessed and, if the right solution matches the right opportunity, scaled in quick time.

A series of Pilot Projects are currently in the process of being tested:

  • Water, waste and lighting management
  • Predictive and automated precinct maintenance
  • Solar energy, integrated batteries and micro-grid technology
  • Video analytics for Safe City and traffic management
  • User engagement and urban furniture
  • Edge tier, Sensor Network and public WiFi capabilities
  • Data Platform analytics.

While we have identified these Pilot Projects, we are open to all proposals. Find out how you can Partner with us.
