IBM Australia Managing Director, Mr. Glen Boreham, last night awarded Innovation Science the national Merit Recipient for Research and Development in the 2009 iAwards, presented at the Crown Palladium in Melbourne.
The 2009 iAwards were hotly contested by innovative technology companies from around Australia. Having won the South Australian iAward for Research and Development in early April, Innovation Science progressed to the national judging round and ultimately national success at the AIIA iAwards Gala dinner attended by over 600 industry peers.
Awarded for Innovation Science’s Rapid Passenger Tracking software technology, the accolade recognises the company’s outstanding achievement in research and development within the ICT industry. Innovation Science now has the opportunity to represent Australia in the Asia Pacific ICT Alliance (APICTA) Awards to be held in December 2009.
The Rapid Passenger Tracking software quickly identifies the set of passengers that are relevant to any incident that occurs on highly interconnected, mass-transit rail networks. The solution reduces the amount of CCTV surveillance that needs to be analysed for any given incident by up to 99.5%. The patent-pending technology has been developed to suit major subway networks including the London Underground, Washington DC Metro, and Hong Kong MTR.
