Tamworth to become first fully integrated smart city in Australia

The Tamworth City Council formed a partnership with the University of New South Wales (UNSW) Sydney and US company Providence Asset Group (PAG) to transform Tamworth into Australia’s first fully integrated smart city. The transition will include installing Internet of things (IoT) applications as part of transportation, energy, health, telecommunications, and other municipal systems by using the city’s existing wireless network. The project will be led by Professor Joe Dong, director of the UNSW Digital Futures Grid Institute.
