Technology and data are increasingly playing a part of our daily lives, continuing to change how we live, work and play.
City of Melbourne's emerging technology testbed projects allow us to work with the community and industry to trial different technologies such as 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT) to explore how they can benefit Melbourne.
Over the past two years we have been working with business and industry leaders across Australia along with our community to:
- explore the processes and policies needed to trial new technologies
- trial new technologies in the streets and parks of Melbourne and establish relationships with partners to test emerging technology.
We’ll continue to launch new projects over the coming months that draw on our learnings from previous testbed activity, so make sure you check in here for updates, or sign up to our newsletter to stay informed.
