Thanks @Audra for the post. Utilities in Australia are focused on several areas with IoT. Metering with electrical utilities has been around for well over a decade now, with different penetration rates between each State. We've seen different degrees of success using sensors on infrastructure.
Water has also seen the move commence to digital metering a few years back, along with sensors for vibrations and leak detection, remote monitoring etc too. We've also been involved with IoT in remote water sample reading, followed by a view to eventually move to remote dosing.
Gas was the final frontier and that is now underway using sensors on meters for remote reading, which is a very exciting project to be part of.
Spending time in the UK and Europe of late and talking with utilities, it's been interesting to hear of similarities but also key differences around data processing, especially in relation to GDPR.
