Smart Irrigation Project wins People’s Choice at Innovation Awards
Congratulations to the SIMPaCT team on being awarded the prestigious People’s Choice Award at the InnovationAus 2023 – Awards for Excellence recently.
HARC is proud to be one of the partners of the SIMPaCT (Smart Irrigation Management for Parks and Cool Towns) project team, leading the development of the digital twin.
The innovative SIMPaCT-Australia project uses a range of Internet of Things (IoT) sensors combined with artificial intelligence and machine learning to effectively cool the surrounding microclimate at Sydney’s Olympic Park precinct.
With SIMPaCT’s 50 devices, 13 weather stations and more than 200 smart soil devices, the microclimate at the park can be cooled, and water use minimised.
The project is also a finalist in the World Smart City Awards 2023 to be announced in Barcelona, Spain in November.
