Smarter Cities

The IBM Smarter Cities Programme is a global philanthropy concept by IBM designed for cities to highlight city wide issues that they require assistance with. The Smarter Cities Challenge deploys top IBM experts to help cities around the world address their most critical challenges. We do this by putting teams on the ground for three weeks to work closely with city leaders and deliver recommendations on how to make the city smarter and more effective. Townsville was the first Australian city selected to participate in this programme.

Sensor-Q

The project brings together leading technologies and expertise from industry, academia and local government. Townsville City Council in collaboration with James Cook University, Taggle Systems Pty Ltd and CoastalCOMS are developing a low cost end-to-end remote water quality monitoring system.

Combining cutting edge sensor technology, innovative telemetry, proven analytical and visualisation systems as well as local government expertise in waterway management this project will deliver a vital management tool to Townsville City Council that will assist in the maintenance of local waterways, stormwater treatment assets as well as feeding into the broader potable water management system.

The Lawn Tamer

Townsville residents use up to 70% of water on their lawns and gardens, much of this water is wasted due to poor soils, inappropriate application rates from hose end sprinklers and the watering frequency. Overwatering can not only harm your lawn and garden but can also be a large cost burden on ratepayers. Water running into gutters and drains can cause excessive weed growth and compromise expensive stormwater treatment assets. Bradley the Lawn Tamer explains how to keep your lawn healthy with less water with Townsville’s ultimate Lawn Guide.
