Smart technology is the foundation on which the Smart Beaches project rests.

Sensors and a mix of other smart infrastructure will monitor wave and swell movement to provide earlier detection of dangerous conditions. Others will monitor visitor activity to gauge which beaches and amenities are busiest at any given time.

The data these sensors collect will be transmitted to lifeguards, local councils and open data websites.

Below is an example of the technology being used on our beaches this summer.
