Entries are now open for the 2021 Australian IoT Awards – the awards of Australia's peak Internet of Things (IoT) industry body, IoT Alliance Australia, and iTnews' sister publication IoT Hub.
For the past five years, the IoT Awards have judged standout IoT projects from the likes of CSIRO’s Data61, NSW Government, NSW Health, City of Melbourne, nbn, City of Perth, Newcrest Mining, NNNCo and University of Technology Sydney.
These awards recognise that real-time data is increasingly important to industry, government and citizens, assisting our response to crises and enabling industry to compete.
They shine a light on such work across a broad range of sectors, from cities, water, energy, transport services and infrastructure and construction to manufacturing, health, food and agribusiness. And they recognise projects, research, advocacy, legislation, policy, platforms, services and people.
Last year, more than 100 entrants from Australian government, industry and academia entered the IoT Awards. They nominated projects that assisted with monitoring the impact of the pandemic in Australian cities, a connectivity rollout encompassing hundreds of NSW Health sites, government data sharing initiatives and an IoT platform underpinning important CSIRO research initiatives.
