Smart Cities Working Group

Increasingly cities are adopting technology and data to provide insights for decision making, improve public safety, enable greater energy efficiency and sustainability, and increase the overall quality of life for citizens. The application of Internet of Things technology enables the collection and analysis of data to support smart cities along with enabling increased automation across assets, infrastructure, and services.

The NZ IoT Alliance has proposed the establishment of a working group to bring together the Internet of Things solution ecosystem for smart cities more effectively to enable more liveable, workable, and sustainable cities, towns, and regions across New Zealand. 

Purpose and Objectives

The purpose of this Working Group is to investigate and promote the IoT innovation being developed in New Zealand in relation to supporting smarter cities, connect key stakeholders to drive this innovation, and to grow the membership of NZ IoT Alliance to more effectively support innovators and end-users. 

The group has been formulated specifically to address the following:

  • To advance the use and adoption of IoT technology to help build smarter cities.
  • To promote smart city solutions being developed by the IoT ecosystem within New Zealand.
  • To connect and grow the IoT solution provider ecosystem in New Zealand 


  • Survey the IoT solution provider member ecosystem to capture key interest areas and current solutions
  • Promote current solutions and key interest areas on the NZ IoT Alliance website
  • Plan and deliver targeted stakeholder engagement activities
