SmartYarra is a leading group of innovators, entrepreneurs, startups and public servants interested in connecting smart cities: especially using City of Yarra as a test case.
Smart Systems may well change the way that local governments, in particular, are organised. Instead of being a collection of departmental silos, they could come to resemble computing platforms. Most services, from payment systems to traffic information, would be provided in only one version and used by all departments – or by private firms that want to offer their own urban applications. There is strong demand for making cities smarter. Without an infrastructure enhanced by digital technology it will be very hard to provide newly urbanized populations with enough food, transport, electricity and water.
Our aim is to connect people with different skills and resources to make smart cities possible.
