The City of Newcastle engaged WSP Australia to co-design and implement a Smart City Intelligent Platform to complement the city’s national award-winning Newcastle Smart City Strategy 2017 - 2021.
A pioneer project in Australia, the state-of-the-art Intelligent Platform will integrate, consolidate and manage data from a wide range of IoT devices, systems, and citywide sources to enhance the productivity of city services, better connect citizens with timely information, and facilitate advanced data analytics. Designed to avoid data silos which often hamper Smart City initiatives, the Intelligent Platform promotes integrated data and services which will drive productivity and resource management with direct benefits to the City and its citizens.
For Newcastle, the outcome of this project will mean a smarter and more innovative region capable of maximising opportunities in sectors including technology, advanced manufacturing, the digital economy and the creative industries.
