Is integration the only thing holding us back? A review of recent IoDT projects in Australia

Presentation date: 26. October
Presentation time: 16:55

The audience will gain an insight into the complexities of creating a public space “Smart City” environment – and an understanding of the difficulties faced when integrating hardware and software that speak different types of computer languages.
Design lies at the core of success, and not just lighting design. A multidisciplinary approach is required with integration and cooperation between lighting design, electrical engineering, communications, wireless technology, fibre optics, urban design plus civil, structural and architectural engineering. With this in place, the audience will then see that after design comes a practical integration, enabled with the aid of workshops that include installers and on-site personnel, and that only after this can the design be documented in a way that leads to a successful installation. Rick will also touch on the peripheral issues of local politics, privacy laws and information gathering.
