Singapore pips London, New York to top global smart city ranking

Using this yardstick, a market research organisation has declared Singapore to be the world's smartest metropolitan area, followed, in descending order of intelligence (if that's the word) by London, New York and San Francisco and Chicago.

According to a study by market researcher Juniper Research, the Global Smart City Performance Index - sponsored by global technology player Intel - ranks the top 20 global smart cities in terms of the integration of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and connected services across four key areas: mobility, healthcare, public safety and productivity.

The survey was conducted during July and September 2017 and Bhubaneswar has performed well in sectors like mobility, health, safety and productivity and has become the only city from India to be placed within the Top 20 list.

The concept of smart city involves the use of IoT technologies such as connected sensors, metres and lights to collect and analyse data to improve public infrastructure and services.

As for health, the Juniper researchers found that smart cities with connected digital health services can play a significant role in creating efficiencies - saving citizens nearly 10 hours a year - as well as potential lifesaving benefits, for both patients and caregivers.

"We can't overlook the importance of the real human benefits that smart cities have".

Productivity gains from encouraging digital innovation to address urban planning challenges, and the ability for citizens to access digital services and city information, were deemed to be critical in improving citizens' productivity in the study.

Created on behalf of the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation, the Bhubaneswar Smart City Plan proposes a state-of-the-art Intelligent City Operations and Management Center (ICOMC) that integrates multiple city systems, including traffic management, parking, bus/transit operations, smart utilities and emergency response. The study noted that gridlock causes drivers to lose up to 70 hours per year, as such an integrated IoT-enabled infrastructure can save drivers 60 hours per year.

Wearable apps, for example, can help people manage chronic conditions without hospitalisation.

Singapore again stood out in this area, for its focus on addressing healthcare service provision for elderly citizens through a range of technologies, including digital service platforms as well as remote monitoring devices, the study found.

Moreover, Singapore's smart video surveillance project helps the country improve its public safety by detecting criminal activity.

Improvements in public safety can deliver almost 35 hours per year, according to the study.
