Adelaide Smart City
Our plan is to become one of the world’s smartest cities with a globally connected and opportunity rich economy.
Adelaide as a ‘Smart City’ puts people and businesses at the centre of everything we do. Our focus is on creating an ecosystem of open and citizen-driven innovation, building and sharing common resources and information for research, development, investment attraction and decision-making to drive economic growth and generate new standards in the way people live, learn, work and do business.
We are embedding 21st century digital technology into our City’s functions, services and infrastructure to improve the functionality and integration of the entire City and economy. A network of sensors is being installed around the CBD to support Smart City Projects. Technology like this will help us better manage things like energy consumption, carbon emissions and the movement of people – enabling us to create welcoming and informative city experiences for residents and visitors alike.
Our work is already paying off – Cisco has recognised Adelaide’s potential by making Adelaide the first ‘Lighthouse City’ in Australia and the Asia Pacific region. Cisco has also installed its latest TelePresence video conferencing technology in the Adelaide Smart City Studio so experts or project participants from anywhere in the city or the world can participate, collaborate and share knowledge.
