Bendigo Internet of Things Network
Bendigo Amateur Radio and Electronics Club invites you to 'Bendigo Internet of Things Network', a presentation by Dr Simon Egerton of La Trobe University, and Chris Rowlands of the City of Greater Bendigo.
La Trobe University and the City of Greater Bendigo are teaming up to trial a new 'Internet of Things Network' in Bendigo.
By installing open source ‘gateways’ in several locations around Bendigo, the project will enable anyone in the local community to connect to the IoT, to gather their own data.
The IoT is a giant network of connected “things”, including mobile phones, weather stations, machines and electronic devices – basically any physical object that features an IP address for internet connectivity.
It enables users to gather data on literally anything – for example, weather patterns, footpath usage, wildlife movements, traffic congestion and water distribution.
Driven out of La Trobe’s new Technology Innovation Lab in Bendigo, this will be the first open source IoT network established in regional Victoria.
