Australia’s first IoT Centre of Excellence

Estrella Resources has announced that it is investigating an opportunity to launch Australia’s first Internet of Things (IoT) Centre of Excellence, in collaboration with Deakin University and Unisono. It is to be located at the Burwood Campus of Deakin University.

The Centre of Excellence is expected to be a hub for innovation, research and commercialisation of Artificial Intelligence-driven IoT technologies in Australia with an initial focus on smart building services in the booming aged care sector. Unisono is a private company, which has been established to commercialise research arising from the collaboration.

Deakin University is a major shareholder of Unisono and research staff at the university will be undertaking the development work on the project under a Research Framework Agreement. The university is a market leader in this form of research, according to Estrella.

This comes after the recent formation of an industry group aiming to help Australia realise the benefits of the IoT.
