Auckland Hackathon sparks problem-solving with emerging IoT and AR technology

In September the University of Auckland was abuzz with a NZ-first – a hackathon focused on the emerging industrial applications for technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) and Augmented Reality (AR). The Hackathon was held in collaboration between Callaghan Innovation, LEAP Australia, and the University of Auckland’s Faculty of Engineering and gave six multidisciplinary student teams the chance to develop and present IoT and AR-based solutions to a series of real-world problems submitted by local industry. The main aims driving the university to hold this Hackathon were to: demystify IoT and AR for both students and industry allow students to use available commercial off-the-shelf IoT and AR software to tackle real-world problems in a short timeframe deliver implementable solutions which also closely consider the...

The State of IoT and AR/VR – what have we learnt travelling to recent events across ANZ?

Over the last month the team at LEAP has really clocked up the frequent flyer miles, travelling to a range of events across Australia and New Zealand, including a Hackathon in Auckland, government facilitated technology seminars across Queensland, an IoT conference/exhibition in Sydney and student showcase in Melbourne. September saw the LEAP PTC team head to New Zealand to help mentor students during the 2019 IoT/AR Hackathon, held in conjunction with the University of Auckland & Callaghan Innovation. Judges included experts from both the university, Callaghan Innovation as well as a representative from the New Zealand IoT Alliance.  During the Hackathon, University of Auckland students across 6 teams tackled real world problems supplied by a diverse range of local companies with the goal of harnessing the...

LiveWorx 2019: Harnessing New Technology for Industrial Innovation

LEAP had the pleasure of attending PTC’s LiveWorx 2019 held last month in Boston & bringing together over 6,500 attendees to learn about the latest advances in PTC’s Digital Transformation technology. PTC CEO Jim Heppelmann opened proceedings with help from senior representatives of Volvo, Rockwell Automation and Howden, providing high level insights into the digital transformation strategy of PTC and its partners as well as live demonstrations of their latest advancements in the Internet of Things, Augmented Reality, Real-Time Simulation and Digital Twin. At LEAP, we’ve now had representatives attend the past 5 LiveWorx events and we felt that 2019 marked a key turning point where PTC and it’s key customers were now demonstrating ready-to-use technology that represented real results and more tangible outcomes –...

AR on display at 2019 Avalon Airshow and Australian F1 Grand Prix

See examples of augmented reality (AR) helping to engage and educate at these two high profile events. In conjunction with RMIT University, in recent months LEAP has taken the opportunity at the 2019 Avalon Airshow and Australian Formula One Grand Prix to showcase the many benefits of Augmented Reality (AR). Many of our customers, students and the general public were excited to experience an Augmented Reality experience at the Avalon Airshow showcasing a Simulation-based Digital Twin using a model of a PC-9 aircraft (same aircraft that has been used by the RAAF Roulettes aerobatics team for many years). LEAP was also on hand during the Airshow to explain how RMIT students created this immersive AR experience combining animated CAD, IoT and Simulation data using Vuforia...
