SMART Infrastructure Facility
At SMART, we recognise that the world is changing, not only because of technology and climate change, but also the impact of an aging population. This means that infrastructure will need to change too.
SMART brings together experts from fields such as transport, water, energy, economics and modelling and simulation and provides a state-of-the-art facility to support this important research. An international leader in applied infrastructure research, SMART is helping to address the challenges of infrastructure planning and management both now and into the future.
The University of Wollongong is proudly leading the digital revolution in the Illawarra region.
In collaboration with the Wollongong City Council, UOW intends to deploy an Internet of Things (IoT) network across the region to support high impact community-orientated projects.
SMART undertakes a number of pure research and commissioned commercial projects and consultancies that contribute to the sustainability of the Facility through revenue strategic partnerships, publications, national and international impact and recognition.
