In order to provide smart urban and rural services in accordance with the Forward-looking Infrastructure Development Program, IDB specifically created the iCity Solutions Mall at Smart City Summit & Expo 2018 to showcase total solutions that extend beyond hardware to include both device and platform services. Keeping in mind the various aspects of Taiwanese everyday life, iCity Solutions Mall features 8 categories of services such as smart energy, transportation, surveillance, healthcare, education, tourism, and retail. 14 local vendors are invited to showcase their total solutions in the categories mentioned above.
iCity Solutions Mall illustrates the essence of these total solutions through live demonstrations on site. Using smart transportation as an example, solutions provided by local vendors range from parking space monitoring and display to direction indication. Parking space sharing and management are also covered, where car plate recognition and payment systems are available as well. In terms of smart energy solutions, Da Fon Environmental Technology which received innovation consultation from IDB is also featured. Da Fon demonstrated their smart recycling station powered by artificial intelligence (AI) to reduce the recycling workload and hassle .
In order to properly address local needs, IDB works closely with local governments and strongly encourages them to take part in initiating smart city development. In addition, citizen’s participation with local flavor is also critical in developing smart solutions. With Taiwan’s ICT capabilities, IDB aims to facilitate innovation within various industries to help bridge the gap between city and rural developments.
