INNOVATION-ORIENTED PLATFORM

An “innovation-oriented platform” plays a crucial role in driving the overall framework and realising our vision. We will receive ideas from the public and various stakeholders through the following four approaches.

CO-CREATION

Collect views and suggestions from the public and other stakeholders to jointly create a win-win outcome.

KNOWLEDGE-DRIVEN

Effectively leverage knowledge from local and overseas examples in various smart city solutions.

CROSS-SECTOR COLLABORATION

Through the concerted efforts of the Government, corporates, professional institutes, universities and research institutes to realise our vision of smart city development for KE.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Comprehensive and interactive platform for dialogue exchange with the community and develop a people-centric smart city model for KE.

GOVERNANCE & SOCIO-ECONOMIC VIBRANCY

Continuous improvement of urban efficiency and management of public assets through innovative technologies can improve city resilience, promote social inclusion, and enhance socio-economic vibrancy.

CITY RESILIENCE

KE can be adaptive to mega events, assemblies and adverse conditions with the use of ICT.

IMPLEMENTATION MODELS

New implementation models will be devised to encourage various sectors to collaborate in smart city development.

SOCIAL INCLUSION

We are committed to improving the area, such that people from all walks of life can enjoy a smart, sustainable and liveable place to work, live and explore freely.

ASSET MANAGEMENT

Good asset management solutions can reduce the risk of asset failure, improve the efficiency of governance and enhance cost-effectiveness.

 

RESOURCES MANAGEMENT & URBAN ENVIRONMENT

Effective use of resources and a high-quality urban environment are part of the key attributes of a smart city. We strive to enhance the environment of KE with blue-green and resource-efficient infrastructure design so as to establisha healthy and sustainable neighbourhood.

BLUE-GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE

Upgrade existing infrastructure to conserve the hydrological and ecological systems and improve the quality of the urban landscape.

BUILT ENVIRONMENT

Environmental impacts of development, such as waste management, air and water pollution, can be alleviated with environmentally-friendly designs.

RESOURCE-EFFICIENT INFRASTRUCTURE

Increase the awareness of conserving energy and resource use, and to build resource-efficient infrastructure to reduce the carbon footprint and energy consumption.

HEALTHY AND SUSTAINABLE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Improve the urban environment o enhance the quality of life and creating inclusive, healthy and sustainable neighbourhood.

 

MOBILITY & WALKABILITY

Pedestrian and road traffic congestion in the built-up areas of KE is a common issue. Besides improving road traffic and enhancing pedestrian connectivity with the aid of intelligent systems, we also encourage the public to use various green transport modes to minimise carbon emission and relieve traffic congestion.

ROAD TRAFFIC

Collect, analyse and disseminate real-time traffic information and manage kerbside activities to relieve road traffic congestion with the use of the latest technology.

GREEN TRANSPORT NETWORK

Encourage the use of green transport modes by developing environmentally-friendly transport networks and related supporting facilities and services.

PEDESTRIAN CONNECTIVITY

Improve the pedestrian experience and promote a “Walkable KE” by building comprehensive pedestrian networks.

 

INFORMATION & COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGY (ICT)

ICT is indispensable for smart city development. It enables the linkage among multiple objects and devices with the use of data and network infrastructure, and supports the development and implementation of smart city initiatives under the three strategic aspects.

WI-FI INFRASTRUCTURE

Extend the coverage area of free Wi-Fi services for people to receive and disseminate information anytime and anywhere.

INTERNET OF THINGS (IoT)

Collect static/real-time data through different sensors, devices, communication networks and servers for conducting analyses and supporting planning and decision making processes.

CENTRALISED DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURE

Study the requirements necessary for setting up a platform for exchange of data (including spatial and non-spatial data) among government departments, the public and private sectors.

OPEN DATA

Share data to the public to encourage innovations.
