ASVDA Taiwan Pavilion: Diverse Applications Present Taiwan’s Smart Cities and Rural Areas
The Asia Silicon Valley Development Agency (ASVDA) is diligently promoting Smart City construction along with a more visible exchange program between the urban and the rural areas. Back in April and December of 2017, ASVDA and the Ministry of Economic Affairs jointly announced a prime subsidy plan of the construction of smart cities and villages, followed by an official team of representatives from across six cities and one county assembled by ASVDA to attend the Global City Team Challenge (GCTC) in Washington DC last August. And for the first time, eight cities/counties (including Keelung City, Hsinchu City, Hsinchu County, Taichung City, Yunlin County, Chiayi County, Chiayi City, Taitung County and others) and three startup companies were invited to participate the “ASVDA Taiwan Pavilion” at the 2018 Smart City Summit & Expo, with an anticipation that the latest progress of Smart City construction will be shared and the various applications of a Smart City, not limiting to just metropolitan areas, are appraised by many across nations. Each county and city throughout Taiwan realizes the importance of a high demand for smart municipal and public services that improve government efficiency and provide people with a quality living environment. In addition, ASVDA has planned for a delegation’s visit from the Thai government to experience Taiwan Smart City, as well as to introduce the smart governing capacity of startup teams.

This year the “ASVDA Taiwan Pavilion” is built in accordance with the principle of Taiwan’s traditional architecture. Adopting “sanheyuan” concept, a U-shape courtyard as a core design, red bricks have been used to build the walls, and elements from unique floral patterns on Hakka fabric have been inserted as coverings, highlighting Taiwan’s cultural essence. The themes showcased by each county and city are multifunctional, including Smart Governance, Smart Tourism, Smart Education, Smart Transportation and Smart Surveillance, etc.…. It also features various development of smart city applications based on regional uniqueness and specific needs.
Keelung represents a key city for the policy development of Taiwan’s Smart Education. With the city’s commitment to delivering educational technology and digital education, the Smart Maker Classroom exhibited this year reflects the skill of self-learning, creativity, and innovation from students. Whereas an Operational Intelligence Platform – Splunk (for police data decision) displayed by Hsinchu City - home of Taiwan’s science and technology, can establish image analysis just by entering human facial features and apparel, or other identifications such as color or model of a vehicle, therefore substantially increase the efficiency of police case handling. In 2016 Hsinchu County was honored in the “Top 7 Intelligent Community Forum (ICF)” competition, and that same year, thanks to a subsidy program sponsored by the Industrial Development Bureau-Ministry of Economic Affairs, a cloud-based marketing platform and App, specifically developed for Wufeng, Jianshi, and other townships to assist marketing and sales, will be presented this year. Taichung City, capital of the Smart Machinery field, contributes to a foundation building of the Smart City with two great achievements, the “Smart Response and Control Center” and the “Block Chain Application”. By integrating upstream and downstream information, vertical IoT applications, and blockchain technology features, public services and the living quality of citizens are greatly improved. A digital governance of a city is also established. An upcoming cloud-based no attendant supermarket at Gukeng Green Tunnel Station, scheduled to open in October 2018, will also be unveiled at this year’s Smart City Expo. By introducing smart interactive display shelves, indoor positioning, and other recognition technology, Yulin County has succeeded in transforming product display and agricultural product sales into a high-tech process. For two consecutive years, 2017 and 2018, Chiayi City has been selected within the ICF’s Top 7. In addition to having scored second place for its Wi-Fi hotspot coverage on a nationwide scale and leading the national chart as “best 4G Smart City Demonstration Site”, Chiayi’s “Mobile Service Station” is also unique: 63 officers equipped with handheld tablets provide cloud-based instant services to the public in the neighborhood. In this year’s exhibition Chiayi County, which just finished hosting the 2018 Taiwan Lantern Festival, has partnered with ASVDA and together with dozens of Smart Payments and Information Security manufacturers (members of the ASVDA Major League IoT) to set up a cash-free market zone. The “Chiayi Lantern Festival Visitors Flow Big Data” and the “Touring VR Online Guide”, specifically designed for the Lantern Festival, also demonstrate an amazing achievement of Chiayi’s Smart City creation. Taitung County, operating under the banner of “Entrepreneurship on the Pacific Coast”, also paves the way for its Smart City innovation applications: the TTPush App smartly integrates its administrative measures from various bureaus within the county government, providing an instant and convenient one stop administrative service. With this App, citizens can receive updates from the county government easily without having to search on line, a bridge between the government and the public has successfully been established.
Apart from the Smart City displays described above, ASVDA also invite three very innovative startups: Tyn Jian Aerospace, PiXORD, and Project Caerulus, to join the ASVDA Taiwan Pavilion at the expo. Tyn Jian Aerospace will exhibit its high-precision satellite positioning technology to which the planning of urban districts, infrastructures, and traffic routes are applied. Smart City construction costs are also optimized. PiXORD Smart Transportation Solution offers real-time traffic flow image recognition, full-time smart identification and analysis, image data collection, big data traffic planning, and other functions. To build a smart traffic management system around the city, this scheme is also applied to traffic signal regulation and control, roadside image monitoring, etc. Project Caerulus focuses on VR technology that brings views of the underwater world to the public: minimizing the gap between people and the ocean. The team from Project Caerulus took part in the filming and editing of Taiwan’s first 360° underwater video which has also been featured on the official website of PADI, world’s largest diving association. At the expo the audience will be able to experience the magnificent blue seabed of Taiwan’s east coast.

 

The Asia Silicon Valley Development Agency (ASVDA) is diligently promoting Smart City construction along with a more visible exchange program between the urban and the rural areas.


Besides the expo held at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, ASVDA also has organized a field visit to Taiwan’s Smart City Demonstration Areas and Solutions for the delegates from Thailand including Vice Mayor of Pattaya, Mayor of Khon Kaen, and 19 members of the Federation of Thai Industries. This visit will cover places like Chunghwa System Integration’s Smart Lamppost Zone in Qingpu area of Taoyuan City, Taoyuan Andong Youth Startups Base, FHNet Smart Healthcare Zone, and FarEasTone Smart City Project in Tainan City. Through discussions of Smart City niche applications and cooperative approaches, both parties hope to reach bilateral agreements between the Taiwanese and Thai industries to further capture the Southeast Asia market.
