As part of its COVIDSafe return to campus strategy, the University of Melbourne deployed more than 1,700 Elsys CO2 sensors in over 900 teaching spaces and lecture theatres. This was to protect the university community from indoor airborne transmission of COVID-19. The captured data reports to their real-time, map-based facilities management platform CampusNow. Supported by SLAs using the MeshedX LoRaWAN Server, real-time data is collected from their campus-wide LoRaWAN network.
Additionally, Meshed has previously worked with the University of Melbourne in 2019 to deploy LoRaWAN gateways across the university’s campuses. These included Parkville, Dookie, Burnley and Creswick. The hybrid gateways provide students, researchers and teaching staff with public LoRaWAN IoT access. The university’s IT and Assets Team have also harnessed the network for mission critical applications as well.
