The Singapore model is a global benchmark when it comes to implementing city modernization throughout the country (Smart Nation), putting the focus on improving the quality of life of its citizens. Singapore seeks to improve services and mobility for citizens in a sustainable environment, as well as to strengthen the safety of cities and create state-of-the-art public spaces.
The technological systems to achieve these objectives include the ongoing management, monitoring and evaluation of DATA in real time.
What has been Singapore’s action plan?
1. Sustainable economy.
Through sensors installed in various regions of the country, energy consumption, waste and the use of drinking and wastewater are monitored in real time. All these devices provide DATA on the use of resources and services, optimizing management based on their analysis and, above all, raising awareness among the population.
2. Home Tele-assistance.
Using a tablet, as well as sensors and cameras, chronic patients or those with reduced mobility are monitored, tracking their vital signs. This information is received in real time by the medical center for decision-making.
3. Buses and intelligent mobility.
With sensors and a geolocation system, the bus network permanently reports all possible variables (location, number of passengers on each bus, traffic on the road, etc.). An A.I.-based system dynamically decides the frequency of buses to optimize service provision, while the DATA reaches the mobility managers, who synchronize the traffic light network in real time to improve circulation throughout the city.
4. Intelligent Safety.
Thanks to the use of A.I. and facial recognition technologies, Singapore has a modern security system, with surveillance cameras and sensors strategically located. The authorities monitor the system and have managed to reduce the number of crimes in the most conflictive points.
5. Long-term state policy.
All governments, regardless of their ideology, must follow the Smart Nation master plan, i.e., to ensure that all cities in the country become Smart Cities.
6. High-capacity connectivity.
A “Smart City” needs good broadband Internet connections, that many local providers offer. The implementation of 5G will generate exponential growth.
The Singapore Case is a successful case of a “Smart Country” in the long term, far from political interests and putting the citizen at the center of a comprehensive urban planning model.
The Nubeprint App for smartphones allows the automatic replenishment of consumables by monitoring printers remotely, ensuring sustainability because it optimizes the change of consumables at the right time, avoiding unnecessary waste. Nubeprint collaborates with the European Commission to support a circular economy model, leading actions in favor of sustainability such as the “1 Million Cartridges Initiative”. We are firmly committed to sustainable printing thanks to A.I. applied to the optimization of resources.
