State of the Nation of IoT – Adoption in Australia 2019

We had a highly successful and active year for IoT in Australia and IoTAA and have some key challenges and opportunities to address for 2020.

The market for IoT evolved and matured during 2019, as evidenced through our surveys, events, workstream activities and industry and government engagements.  Some of the indicators of maturity include:

–        NSW Government IoT Policy Framework

–        Federal Government Voluntary code for IoT Security

–        Launch of Consumer Data Rights

–        Rise of Distributed Energy Resources and their data collection needs

–        Water industry moving to mass deployment of sensors

–        Setup of Standards Australia IoT group – headed by IoTAA

–        IoT applied to Major Infrastructure projects, Victorian LXRP program

–        AgTech Finder is launched to help sort the “Wheat from the Chaff”

–        IoTAA commissioned  study for ACCC on eSafety for Consumer IoT

–        Two new IoTAA workstreams launched – Health and Manufacturing

Our signature IoT Impact event brought together over 100 speakers and delivered 2 days of outstanding engagement and feedback. We participated in over 100 events during the year and significantly increased our social media presence.

We held our IoTAA Strategy Day on 29 November, attended by the Board, Executive Council and Workstream Chairs. The Strategy Day Report  sets our 2020 aims and Plan-on-a-Page program of activities. Members can access this report.

Who we are
