2019 NSW iAward winners announced
NSW’s best and most innovative digital technologies were celebrated last week, as the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) announced the state’s 2019 iAward winners.
Among the winners, were: UTS and RMS, for their “autonomous robot for underwater structure cleaning”; Baraja, for the “Spectrum-Scan LiDAR”; and the National Narrowband Network Co, for its “N2N-DL IoT data platform”.
These companies topped the public sector and government, automation technologies of the year and infrastructure and platforms innovation of the year categories, respectively.
NSW Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello, who attended the event, was excited about the awards and praised the public sector and government award in particular.
“The iAwards are a key driver of innovation and new ideas in NSW and provide due recognition for those who are leaders in their field. The advent of a public sector innovation award has sparked plenty of healthy competition in recent years among the many innovators and technology experts within government,” he said.
AIIA CEO Ron Gauci further demonstrated the awards’ significance.
“For 26 years the iAwards has recognised, celebrated and elevated those at the forefront of Australian innovation. This year, we’re once again proud to provide a platform for, and encouragement to, people in our community who dedicate their time and energy to develop technological ideas that can make a real difference at home, in the office or on a global scale,” he said.
A full list of winners and merit recipients can be found on the AIIA website.
Winners and merit recipients from all categories will compete in the National iAwards, with national winners being announced on 29 August.
