Singapore has been named tops in the world on a list of cities doing the best job at applying technology to improve their mobility and transportation connectedness, according to Juniper Research’s 2016 Smart City Rankings.
Singapore has deployed hundreds of cameras and sensors citywide to analyze traffic congestion and crowd density. This enables government officials to reroute buses at rush hour, reducing the risk of traffic jams.
Municipal officials should insist on only partnering with technology developers and integrators that offer connectivity across all mobile devices. This will ensure all residents and visitors can leverage the connected network, and will more easily scale as additional smart services are implemented citywide in the future.
