ST Engineering Showcases Industry-Leading, Smart City Capabilities for Middle East

October 22, 2018 Singapore

ST Engineering’s Electronics sector today showcased its smart city capabilities designed to help address urbanisation challenges of the Middle East. At the Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition 2018 (WETEX 2018) in Dubai, it launched a suite of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions that harness innovative technologies to enhance city management, manage transportation challenges and improve quality of life for residents.

Targeted solutions to solve prevalent issues

ST Engineering’s cloud-based Smart Car Park Platform utilises Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) and predictive analytic capabilities with advanced sensors and wireless communications that enable carpark operators to manage multiple parking systems concurrently. When implemented, these solutions will result in up to 25 percent reduction in operating and maintenance costs. Motorists will also enjoy improved parking experiences due to time saved in car park searches.

Also on showcase is ST Engineering’s WISX IoT solution suite, which integrates best-of-breed IoT technologies, data analytics and communications solutions on a single platform to support holistic smart applications such as smart street lighting and indoor lighting, waste management, water and energy resource management, environment monitoring and lift monitoring.

  • The WISX IoT Platform enables the sharing of resources, data, applications and analytic capabilities on a single platform. It will enhance operating efficiency and reduce maintenance costs. This makes it easier, faster and more cost-effective for municipals and businesses to adopt IoT applications and technologies.
  • The WISX Smart Street Lighting and On-demand Lighting embedded with intelligent light control as well as predictive analytic capabilities will help municipals realise up to 40% energy and maintenance cost savings.

“IoT solutions are fast becoming the cornerstone of global smart city initiatives, as they deliver optimised efficiency, significant cost savings and enhanced experiences for citizens,” said Mr Yao Shih Jih, General Manager of Info-Comm Systems from ST Engineering’s Electronics sector. “As a key enabler of smart city transformation, we have implemented more than 15 million wireless sensors around global cities that enable smart street lighting, water resource management and other smart city applications. For parking, we have garnered experience from managing more than 250,000 car park lots. We are excited to be a part of the Middle East Smart City journey, sharing our technological expertise and shaping their future tech-led cities.”

These Smart City capabilities will be available for preview and demonstration at WETEX 2018 from 23 to 25 October 2018 at booth no DM8, Arena/SmarTech Hall, at Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. For more details on the IoT solutions on showcase, please refer to Annex A.

Fact Sheet: Smart City Capabilities on Showcase at WETEX 2018

cetrac Smart Car Park Platform

cetrac Smart Car Park Platform offers a cloud-based car park management solution that centralises all car park operations and maintenance on a single platform to provide more convenient parking services to motorists. The system leverages Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) and mobile payment applications to provide non-intrusive, efficient and seamless parking services to motorists while providing significant cost savings and enhanced operating efficiency to car park operators and owners.

The Smart Car Park Platform gives operators an overview of their portfolio’s revenue collection, occupancy records, trends and profiling for enhanced planning and operations. It is able to unify multiple car park operator’s management systems and applications to allow seamless operations and management of different car park systems. Motorists can benefit from its cashless, ticketless and seamless payment modes as well as having the option to make advance booking of car park lots, thus reducing the frustration of searching for car park space especially in the city areas.

WISX IoT Platform

WISX IoT Platform leverages best-of-breed IoT technologies, data analytics and communications solutions on a single platform to support multiple applications across municipals and enterprises, delivering seamless experiences for residents. The platform supports multiple applications, such as smart street and indoor lighting, waste management, car park management, water and energy resource management, environment monitoring and lift monitoring. With the platform, resources can be shared without costly investment on infrastructure, connectivity and applications. Municipals can also have the flexibility to select the IoT solution that best meet their needs while maintaining secure operations and control for their organisations.

WISX Smart Street Lighting

WISX Smart Street Lighting provides a one-stop IoT application that intelligently monitors and controls street lightings in response to changing environmental conditions, resulting in optimised energy consumption as well as reduced downtime and maintenance. In addition, the smart street lightings can be connected to form a robust network of sensors that enables real-time data collection and analytics for enhanced preventive and predictive maintenance. Various sensors can be deployed on the street lightings to help municipals to monitor air quality, weather, flood, noise, traffic and other environmental elements. The Smart Street Lighting application can be deployed on the WISX IoT Platform to enable other smart city applications through its sensor network.

WISX Smart On-demand Lighting

WISX Smart Indoor Lighting leverages wireless networked sensors and a smart controller to allow the efficient use of lighting without compromising users’ safety and security. It is designed to manage lighting based on demand by using smart sensors and adaptive algorithms, thereby achieving high energy efficiency and an improved user experience. It is ideal for deployment in common areas such as multi-storey or basement car parks, stairwells of commercial buildings as well as sheltered overhead bridges and covered walkways.
