3. Harold Sinnott’s tweet about 5G and IoT technologies empowering garbage trucks in Australia
Harold Sinnott, a tech influencer, shared an article about how an interconnected network of garbage trucks can enable detection of roads and roadside infrastructure in need of repair and maintenance. A 5G partnership between Brimbank City Council and Swinburne University of Technology in Australia is using GPS sensors and high-resolution cameras fitted to garbage trucks to detect road infrastructure in need of repair.
The project is being carried out in the Melbourne metropolitan area, with federal government funding of $1.18 million and seeks to establish how 5G and IoT can help build smart cities in Australia. The technologies will work by collecting a set of data from connected devices that will be sent to a cloud-based system in real time, which will identify roads and assets that need maintenance, including damaged roads, bus shelters and traffic signs.
