SAPHI is the technical integration lead for Australia’s largest smart green infrastructure project (SIMPACT) using irrigation, IoT sensors and AI to reduce the ambient temperature of Sydney Olympic Park.


SIMPACT Project Background

Dubbed SIMPACT (Smart Irrigation Management for Parks and Cool Towns), the project is a collaboration between the NSW Government, several universities and private industry to address the growing problem of heat islands in cities.

The project aims to leverage irrigation, IoT devices and artificial intelligence to cool the park’s microclimate for residents and visitors.

What Was The Problem?

The SIMPACT project requires a significant amount of hardware and software infrastructure to be developed, deployed and integrated to achieve its goal. With several industry partners, each delivering a specific piece of hardware and software, the client needed a technical lead who understood both the hardware and software components to develop an integrated solution.

What Was The Solution?

The engineering team at SAPHI was selected as the technical integration lead to provide the needed guidance and expertise to integrate each component within the system. Our team is managing the development, delivery and integration activities of the SIMPACT project to ensure the objectives are met.

What Are The SIMPACT Objectives?

The SIMPACT project has several major objectives including:

  • 4-degree reduction in temperature
  • 15% reduction in water usage within the first year
  • Fully automated irrigation management
