Smart City Taiwan Becoming Hub for Digital Solutions

Taiwan has implemented 223 Smart City projects which make use of various technologies and innovative solutions to improve important aspects of communities, including governance, healthcare, transportation, agriculture and more.

As Artificial Intelligence technology develops, the applications begin to play a key role in government delivery of citizen services. Smart cities are entering to a new phase of Smart City 2.0 by integrating AI as well as Internet of Things technologies into services.

These are some of the many Smart City Taiwan projects, that demonstrates some of their best practices which could help cities worldwide to solve similar issues. To yield a greater understanding of the solutions with real cases and data, Smart City Taiwan digital solutions engage, Taiwan International Development Co., (TIDC) use of geomagnetic senses to reduce traffic by acquiring and sharing real-time parking information.

In smart aquaculture, a tech company uses solutions for fish farms to mitigate risks from extreme weather and food contamination. The company uses Human Intelligence (HI) and AI technology to increase productivity in agriculture through digitalisation. A healthech company strives to reduce burdens on hospitals and enable remote patient monitoring through integrated medical and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) solutions.

Taiwan’s smart city is developed through the IoT, cloud computing, big data, mobile Internet, and other new generation technologies regarding information and communication, and data resources in various fields are integrated and applied.

Through national policies and initiatives, Taiwan’s “Smart Cities Development Project”, engages public-private partnership (PPP) to facilitate intelligent services in Taiwan, and the global marketplace. This has assisted to drive user-centred solutions to migrate from 4G to 5G, utilising Taiwan’s strength in hardware and software integration. Smart cities are one of the goals that countries around the world are striving to develop. Taiwan is world-renowned for its smart city development.

Taiwan has also demonstrated innovative solutions from the perspective of information security policy. This provides operational management and decision-making support in smart governance. The purpose of the development of smart cities is to achieve a life beyond efficiency for citizens.

Taipei City takes “open government”, “participation by all”, and “public-private collaboration” as its core vision and spirit, and promotes the development of smart cities based on the principle of “from the inside out, from public to private”. In response to the evolution of smart technology and the changing needs of urban development.

“Smart Government” is proposed as the main body to promote along with seven other main projects including Smart Security, Smart Building, Smart Transportation”, Smart Education, Smart Health, Smart Environment, and Smart Economy, forming the Smart City 1+7 field.

Combining the top-down policy and the button up, creative proposal, it is expected that Taipei City can build co-prosperous ecosystems for the government, citizens, and industries, creating a blueprint for future planning of a smart city in Taipei.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, in the push for smart city programs around the world, the Taipei City Government’s rebranded digital pass enables a quick vaccination appointment and, shortly, could incorporate digital proof of COVID-19 vaccination status, adding to the city’s array of diverse and smart COVID-19 containment measures.

Known as the “Taipei Card” until last year, TaipeiPASS was designed as a one-stop solution for 80% of municipal services, from paying taxes and parking tickets to utility bill payments, access to the library resources, and a citizen hotline. In addition, citizens can remotely cast a vote, file a complaint, report an offence, and enjoy exclusive dining and shopping discounts at stores.

Commissioner of Taipei’s Department of Information Technology said that in addition to the check-in, a data analytics model of citizen flows at places of business will be adopted in the service to prevent COVID-19 transmission. As for those less familiar with smart devices, the city is allowing them to check in with a registered Taipei EasyCard.
