3. Harold Sinnott’s tweet on 5G and IoT technologies bolstering Australia’s waste trucks

Harold Sinnott, a technology influencer, shared an article on how an interconnected network of garbage trucks can enable the detection of roads and roadside infrastructure that need repair and maintenance. A 5G partnership between Brimbank City Council and Swinburne University of Technology in Australia is leveraging GPS sensors and high-resolution cameras installed on waste trucks to detect road infrastructure in need of repair.

The project is being carried out in Melbourne’s metropolitan area, with a federal government funding of $1.18m and seeks to establish how both 5G and IoT can help build smart cities in Australia. The technologies will work by collecting a set of data from the connected devices that will be sent to a cloud-based system in real-time, which will identify the roads and assets that need maintenance including damaged roads, bus shelters, and road signs.
