• This week in IoT, plans for a Wakanda-like smart city in Ethiopia are revealed, while Cork’s DePuy Synthes gets international recognition.

    After the smash hit release of the film Black Panther – chronicling the defence of a hyper-advanced city in a fictional city-state called Wakanda by a superhero king – a smart city developer aims to help build something similar.

    According to the Ethiopian News Agency, the country’s government, in partnership with the developer called HubCity Live, will aim to build the $3bn internet of things (IoT) connected city in an area called Bahir Dar in the state of Amhara.

    Expected to take up to 10 years to develop, the blueprints were presented during a workshop in the country’s capital of Addis Ababa, including the Ethiopian national and regional governments.

    Speaking of Bahir Dar’s potential, HubCity Live Ethiopia’s co-founder, Mikal Kamil, described the region as the “cradle of humanity” and noted “its geographical resemblance with the city of Wakanda in the movie Black Panther”.

    When completed, the city will bring various smart technologies and IoT, with the aim of it being a centre for various institutions to undergo developments in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

    Cork’s DePuy Synthes facility hailed as IoT ‘lighthouse’
    The World Economic Forum (WEF) has shone a light on Cork as the home of one of nine ‘lighthouse’ sites for the fourth industrial revolution and specifically IoT.

    The Johnson & Johnson-owned DePuy Synthes site in Ringaskiddy develops replacement knee and hip joints for patients. It has been acclaimed for its use of IoT to create advanced machine insights, resulting in lower operating costs and a reduction in machine downtime.

    Speaking with the The Irish Times, a spokesperson for the WEF said: “By implementing simple IoT devices across a range of machines that were never intended to ‘talk’ to each other, the DePuy Synthes factory created real-time digital twins of its factory equipment to monitor performance.”

    The facility was selected from an initial list of 1,000 manufacturing companies across the world, joining Bosch Automotive in Wuxi, China; and Schneider Electric’s facility in Le Vaudreuil, France.
