This project aims at establishing a large-scale, real-world experimental facility for the Internet of Things (IoT), which is currently missing in Australia, as well as in the rest of the world. The facility is expected to be an essential instrument to achieve Australia’s leadership on key enabling technologies of IoT, and to provide Australian research community with a unique platform for large-scale experimentation and evaluation of IoT technologies and services. It also serves as a perfect vehicle for the education and training of Australia’s next generation of
scholars and engineers. This unique facility will be open to the rest of the world, which is expected to contribute significantly to Australia’s scientific visibility.
