Bringing IoT technology to one city at a time – smart car parks at Bunjil Place

As the City of Casey’s vibrant new precinct, Bunjil Place is the creative and community heart of the region, which is Victoria’s most populous municipality with a population of over 250,000.

Opening to the public in late October 2017, Bunjil Place will bring together an unprecedented mix of facilities and be the City of Casey’s premier cultural precinct where residents and visitors will attend outdoor events in the community plaza, enjoy live performances in the 800-seat theatre, explore exhibitions in the gallery or take some time out in the modern library.

To manage the one million expected visitors per year, Telstra has joined forces with Smart Parking to bring parking bay sensors to Bunjil Place. The solution includes 904 of Smart Parking’s vehicle detection sensors used to monitor parking space availability, including mobility bays which are displayed on variable message signs at the carpark entrance, with directions to get the driver there.

SmartSpot Gateways will connect to Telstra’s mobile network and act as the central communication unit that collects data from the sensors via wireless communication and transmits it to the SmartCloud parking services system. This helps the City to monitor park facilities and use resources more efficiently to allow the City to create an easier and more pleasant parking experience for visitors.

This is just another step forward as Telstra continues to bring IoT technology to communities across Australia. Earlier this year, Joondalup partnered with Telstra to bring smart parks to its city. Telstra is now proud to bring IoT technology to Bunjil Place; the only facility of its kind serving a regional community and enabling them to connect better with arts and cultural activities.

Mark Chapman, Director, Global Enterprise Mobility at Telstra, takes a look at how IoT transformation is leading the way for Australian businesses to optimise, innovate, and compete on the global stage.

“IoT is a way of actually optimising your business to deliver the best outcomes for your customers at the best price.”

With the power to take any problem and solve it, IoT is presenting leaders with the opportunity to optimise business, foster innovation and breed success.

This shift means that Australian businesses aren’t just competing with one another, they’re competing with the world.

Everybody wants to know how they can use IoT to actually improve some aspect of their business, to take cost out of the business, to actually make life better for their staff.

IoT is a way of actually optimising your business to deliver the best outcomes for your customers at the best price. From an innovation perspective, it’s about taking what you do today and making it better.

When Telstra thinks about IoT, it thinks about three things. Innovation, network, and security. From an innovation perspective, it’s about taking what you do well today and making it better.

Mark Chapman, Director, Global Enterprise Mobility at Telstra, is one of 50 speakers at the Vantage two day showcase this year, where he will present on “Where it’s at – The ‘outside in’ of workforce mobility.”
