Adelaide Smart City’s Project Budelaide Launched

Our continuous and increasing collaboration with the Adelaide Smart City Studio was clearly visible and acknowledge during the launch of the Smart City Lego Model, also called Budadelaide project. This project is a great demonstration of multi parties collaboration of contributing to the Adelaide Smart City initiative with which I have been involved as an active member of the Steering Committee. Whilst no doubt several organisations and dozen of individuals contributed to Budelaide projects, there were four specific partners,  Adelaide Smart City StudioBuddy, Southern Bricks Lego User GroupUniversity of Adelaide. I am very proud of being part of this project as my initial discussions with Adam Schultz, GM of Buddy Australia, led us to define a project through which our BE (Software) final year students can contribute to building a demonstrator by integrating available technologies. I must acknowledge the excellent coordination and supportive contributions of the Adelaide Smart Cities Studio manager, Beth Worrall. The Lego Model was launched by the Lord Mayor of Adelaide in a small but elegant ceremony, and within a few hours the news of the Smart City Lego Model was taken up by almost every major media outlet.
