In Adelaide, the government is providing free WiFi for everyone, especially in the CBD area. The Adelaide city council claims that it is the largest and most performing City WiFi network in Australia and is on par with the best in the world in terms of coverage and services offering. Although, the government claims that it is the best public wifi network, we intend to analyze the speed, the number of users and the usage patterns in order to make it even better. Through our project we will try to find the usage patterns and provide suggestions on optimization of the access point locations.

Team Name: 

Fivemind is a land management and bushfire mitigation tool. Using Satellite imagery, the tool automatically detect changes in vegetation and human built structures within specific terrestrial areas. These change observations are combined with terrain and climate data to produce a spatial risk assessment. Land Managers and Fire Authorities can then capture and evaluate higher resolution imagery of areas of concern by deploying UAVs or Drones over flight paths generated by the tool.

Idea: Guiding drivers through dangerous situations via audio

Based on data collected from sensors in the car and open data available externally a current situation of the environment and the mental state of the driver is analysed and depending the analysis result audio feedback is provided to the driver. Audio may include music, noise, or voices. The audio will indicate if the driver is approaching a dangerous situation, influence the mood/state of the driver, e.g., calming down, prevent from falling asleep, pointing out an upcoming dangerous situation.

The Steamer Porthole -
As history researchers we have found information about the steamer captains and their
boats difficult to find. As this is an important part of South Australian pioneer history
we wanted to make a portal which helps solve this problem.

From the portal:
Travel the River Murray virtually, from your home, or go out and explore the places
and routes our river pioneers travelled.
