Connected Hobart: Smart City Framework and Action Plan

Connected Hobart Smart City Framework and Action Plan

On 11 September 2019, the Council unanimously endorsed the Connected Hobart Smart City Framework and Action Plan, which will guide technology decision-making at the City of Hobart.

Thanks to community input, Connected Hobart has become a Hobart-focused, nationally-leading Smart City program, reflecting the community's vision and responding to both the opportunities and challenges that the latest technology revolution will bring to our city.

Examples of Connected Hobart projects include:

  • Automated vehicle trials (CTR01) - to test the benefits of driverless cars in a safe and controlled location
  • Environmental monitoring (CEN03) - to maintain and improve Hobart's clean, green environment
  • Pet tracking (CCS05) - for finding lost pets
  • Digital wayfinding (CVI03) - to make it easier for visitors to navigate our city
  • Drone trials (CEN01) - for helping to manage bushland in places where it's hard for humans to go
  • Connected Hobart community engagement, communications and ethics (CGV05, 06 and 07) - to work with Hobart communities on Smart Cities and respond to priorities such as privacy
