Digital Living Lab

SMART Digital Living Lab Logo

The Digital Living Lab is a technology-agnostic innovation hub providing a testbed for a wide range of end-to-end Internet of Things projects.

The Digital Living Lab delivers Internet of Things (IoT) based solutions for smart communities through the ideas of Share, Enable and Create. High impact community projects are enabled through a network of LoRaWAN gateways, edge computing devices, sensors and algorithms. These projects address key social, economic health, safety and environmental issues. Researchers have designed and developed remote sensing devices, including smart visual sensors using artificial intelligence for mobility mapping purposes as well as air quality and water levels monitoring systems. The data collected through these devices is then transformed into knowledge and action, leading to improved processes and outcomes. Through training and education in schools and within the community, the Digital Living Lab aims to demystify the IoT.
