Australian IoT specialists, recognised in Australia’s International Good Design Awards for Design Excellence.

Brisbane-based technology company have received a prestigious Gold Award for Design Excellence at the Good Design Awards for the Captis Multi IoT product, the highest honour for design and innovation in the country.

The product, which is designed and manufactured in Brisbane and allows businesses to remotely measure, monitor and manage their assets and infrastructure, was recognised in the Engineering Design category for its durability, robustness and ease to work with.

The Good Design Awards Jury commented: “The market to connect existing infrastructure and assets with data is nascent and requires solutions that are robust and easy to work with. The team behind the Captis Multi IoT is to be congratulated for engineering a device that is durable, water resistant and agnostic to the different types of sensors required for specific applications. The Captis Multi IoT knows the place it seeks to play and to win and should find a willing market.”

Captis Multi enables the most remote assets and infrastructures to be constantly monitored while unattended and is used across a range of industries, including water and waste water, mining, agriculture and transport to allow businesses to easily maximise uptime, reduce operating costs and improve sustainability.

mIoT CEO, Gerhard Loots, commented: “We’re exceptionally honoured to have our product associated with the Good Design Awards. The digitisation of industries and infrastructure represents a massive opportunity for Australia to help combat climate change and to do things better. Building solutions for this industry requires exceptional engineering and design to ensure solutions are tough and fit for purpose – we’re proud of our team’s efforts and grateful for the judges recognition of it.”

Projects recognised with an Australian Good Design Award demonstrate excellence in professional design and highlight the impact a design-led approach has on business success and social and environmental outcomes.

The winners of Australia’s peak international design awards were announced on Friday 16th September at the 2022 Australian Good Design Awards. The Good Design Awards reward projects across 11 design disciplines covering more than 30 categories and sub-categories.

Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia and Chair of the Australian Good Design Awards said: “To be recognised with an Australian Good Design Award is a significant achievement, given the incredibly high standard of projects submitted in this year’s Awards. The Good Design Award is a valuable independent endorsement of professional design quality. It tells the world this project not only represents design excellence, but it also surpasses the criteria for design innovation and design impact.”

“We know that good design, when used effectively, can improve our quality of life and make the world around us better, safer, more efficient and more beautiful. It is clear from this year’s winning projects that investment in professional design delivers real impact – be it at a commercial, environmental or societal level. As our world transitions to a less-carbon intensive future, a design-led approach to solving problems and delivering meaningful impact is going to become more critical”, Dr. Gien went on to say.
