Smart Streets. Smart Cities.


The Innovation Precinct in Wynyard Quarter is Ground Zero for testing the newest smart ‘things’, as Spark partners with Auckland Transport to bring the future faster.

IoT and 5G technology deployed and connected by Spark is enabling AT to pilot new ways of managing assets, resources and services more efficiently.

IoT-connected infrastructure such as Smart Benches, Smart Bins and Smart Lights are in action now, and helping make the city a more enjoyable place to work, play and interact.

These IoT networked devices will make running a much bigger future Auckland more cost-efficient, and environmentally sustainable.  



Why AT is partnering with Spark IoT?

Auckland is expected to hit 2.4 million people by 2050. City planners need to experience now – in a real-world environment – how new IoT-connected infrastructure will improve safety, congestion, sustainability and convenience, as the city grows and changes.

Result - IoT is having an impact

The IoT tech deployed at Wynyard Quarter is producing encouraging results. People are enjoying the benefits of connected infrastructure, and planners are getting the quality data they need to make better investment decisions.
