Posted 20 April 2018

IoT eventOn April 11 and 12, the Australian Water Association Tasmanian Branch, through the support of Definium Technologies and Data61, hosted two technical workshops in Launceston and Hobart to build a better understanding of the use and implementation of IoT technology (Internet of Things). Over 100 attendees across the water industry were addressed with detailed presentations from:

• Ed La Perle and Mike Cruse of Definium providing details of their in house capabilities,
• Sal Stevenson (TasNetworks) Senior Innovations Engineer providing insights into TasNetworks trials in conjunction with TasWater within the LoRaWAN environment;
• Chris Sharman and John McCulloch of Data61 providing insights into their IOT advancements in the water and irrigation industries; and
• Eng Kiat Lim of Semtech who described the vision and use cases for LoRa technology.

Those attendees in Launceston were provided with an extra special experience with John Perry, Coordinator General for Tasmania providing insight into the Tasmanian Government’s vision for Launceston as a Smart City and the access to the Definium Technologies workshop to see the creation of LoRa communication devices.

The Tasmanian State Branch would like to extend their sincere thanks to Definium Technologies and Data61 for supporting these successful events. The Tasmanian Branch is committed to providing member value by running a series of technical events throughout the year that are free for members and this would not be possible without Industry support.
