i-Sense Oakleigh: The Smart Connected Precinct

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Funded by Australian Federal Department of Industry, Technology & Science, this project is a collaboration between Monash City Council and Monash University to build a smart precinct underpinned by advance sensing technologies and a data communication network. The network provides a connected platform to sense, collect and analyze relevant data to improve livability for the community within the precinct. The LiDAR sensors and its platform will collect and fuse different data on mobility including vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians, as well as improve utilization of public spaces such as on-street and off-street parking.

CHALLENGES

Before using Jaguar, the traffic management was done manually by people with low efficiency and accuracy. How to develop a connected IoT platform that enables multiple sensoring approaches and data communication technologies to sense, collect and analyze relevant data to improve liveability is a big challenge.

HOW PRODUCT HELPED

Innovusion Jaguar LiDARs are being installed on Smart Poles, at the Oakleigh Eaton Mall, on a T Junction; working on Traffic tabulations and Security Monitoring, helping Monash meet their legislative responsibilities for workplace and public safety.

increase livability in the Oakleigh precinct through development

increase levels of service and efficiency

ultimately improve livability for the community.

RESULTS, RETURN ON INVESTMENT AND FUTURE PLANS

After nearly half a year of internal testing, the error is controlled within centimeters, and the detection accuracy of large vehicles is ≥98%. Only on the first day official launch, 4 vehicles were successfully detected.

After successful pilot, the solution may be promoted to all highways across the country.

Innovusion’s lidar sensors have been instrumental in our project, providing the accurate, reliable 3D data we need in our smart city platform.
