Digital, Data & Sensors Webinar Series | Internet of Things

Sep 22, 2020 10:30am to 12:30pm

Our Digital, Data and Sensors webinar series is designed to take delegates on a journey of discovery into new and emerging technologies and how they can be applied to the water sector.

 On Tuesday 22nd September, join us to learn more about the Internet of Things (IoT).

 IoT encompasses the billions of technological devices globally that are connected to the internet, all accumulating and transferring data. But what value does IoT have for the water sector, and importantly, can it provide value for utilities and their customers?

Our presenters will demonstrate the importance of IoT and its capability in solving water-related challenges. See for yourself how others have used IoT to achieve higher operational efficiency and provide better customer outcomes.

Date: Tuesday, 22 September 2020
Time:  10:30am - 12:30pm (Sydney time - AEST)
Location:  Online via Zoom
Cost:  Free for members, $30 for non-members

MEET OUR PRESENTERS

 

 Ashby Martin, Smart Cities Lead, SAGE Automation | Specifying constraints for reliable IOT

What are the considerations for deploying reliable and robust IOT devices in the field? This presentation
will touch on the process for collecting, defining and specifying requirements that outline the constraints
of an IOT solution. Through real world examples, attendees will gain insight into the facilitation of a
requirements specification that ensures all stakeholders are aligned to get great outcomes when collecting
data and controlling field equipment.

As Smart Cities Lead at SAGE Automation, Ashby has a deep technical understanding of the best practices
in design, implementation and management of IOT systems. He applies these to achieve exemplary outcomes,
reducing the use of resources, enabling public accountability and providing great public experiences. Winner
of the Smart City Council's 2019 Emerging Leader award, Ashby has shown an aptitude for applying innovative
thinking to solve problems in the public realm. With IOT experience in mining, transport, agriculture and smart
cities, Ashby has a clear vendor-agnostic vision to data collection and control.

 

Dr Moira Smith, Chief Technology Officer, DCAT | Making the most of your IoT data: next-generation
cloud systems for trusted, provable service 
delivery

IoT sensors will become ubiquitous in the water industry within the foreseeable future, and will add to the
deluge of data available to water utilities and others in the sector. Readiness for robust data handling,
seamless integration with existing enterprise and other systems, and solving practical issues such as
coverage, environmental resilience and battery life will see those who are prepared reap the rewards that
IoT can bring.

Moira will consider the challenges faced by the water industry as it tries to adopt and unlock the benefits
of integrated sensor technology, particularly IoT devices, and discuss some of the architectures,
infrastructure and processing solution options available for delivering scalable intelligent, multi-sensor
business benefit through trusted cloud environments. Factors such as data security, integrity and
provenance will be highlighted, and examples will be shared of how other sectors are already doing so. 

 

Genéne Kleppe, CEO, Digital Twinning Australia | Digital Twinning: a better method for optimising 
asset whole of life cost and optimisation

New technologies like digital twins will have a huge impact to the water industry. Genene Kleppe’s
presentation will show participants how accessible digital twinning is.

Genene will focus on defining the parameters of a system in a linear model. She will challenge the
thinking of what smart technology is. The presentation will finish with a demo of a digital twinning
model so you can see for yourself how the technology can be used within the water industry.

Working mostly with large mining and infrastructure clients in the public and private sectors, Genéne
solves complex IoT portfolio, program and asset management problems.  More recently, Genéne
has brought a digital twin into brown field mining sites to life.  As an accomplished design and systems
thinker working with Executives, Genéne translates data, analytics and strategy alignment into good
governance, demonstrating how tools like digital twins are real game changers.

Genéne has an MBA, Graduate Diploma in Organisational Psychology and a Bachelor in Applied
Science. Genéne is the Founder & CEO of Digital Twinning Australia.
