On May 28, 2018 Newcastle Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes and Councillor Peta Winney unveiled the first of many dual language signs to support the integration of smart city technology across Newcastle.
Showcasing the indigenous language of the Worimi and Awabakal people, the signs are part of a larger dual naming project backed by Newcastle City Council in prominent landmarks to create a a cultural signage trail across the city. The R&D team at ResTech partnered with the council to develop the signs and incorporated a variety of technology including solar panels, industrial internet of things (IIoT), wave finders and audio exciters to name a few.
ResTech were heavily involved in the project from initial rapid prototyping and design through the fabrication of the finished product.
