A project initiated by the French Chamber of Commerce in Singapore, this portfolio showcases 150+ French smart city solutions awaiting to be pioneered, implemented, and exported with Singapore.
Our solutions cover the seven sectors identified by the Economic Development Board for smart cities. They address priorities outlined in the Sustainable Singapore Blueprint 2015 and in Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative piloted by the Smart Nation Programme Office. Being a smart city is to find intelligent solutions to common urban problems. The “smartness” does not always lie in the technology itself but in the way it is implemented in space and time. This sectorial presentation reveals that citizens can actively benefit from new services mostly based on the existing infrastructure, thanks to two major components: a new physical layer made of sensors embedded in existing infrastructure and which collect data flowing through broadband networks and analysed in real-time by powerful software; and a dominant business model, the sharing economy, which transforms fixed costs into variable costs for the end-user. This combination increases the quality of life without building new infrastructure or consuming land and resources: the decoupling strategy is what makes smart cities, ultimately, sustainable.
French Solutions across 7 Sectors
The city is a complex living system with a high degree of inertia. In order for a smart city not to become rapidly outdated, any technological improvement needs to anticipate major trends and take citizens’ aspirations into account, while keeping the “soul” of the city. French advanced simulation and engineering solutions help make the urban[…]
We deliver building projects that contribute to a sustainable living environment, ensure well-being for users and allow them to get involved in energy management. In Singapore, 50% of all electricity is consumed by buildings, in particular malls, offices, and hotels. The amount of new building construction as a percentage of all buildings in Singapore is[…]
From 1965 onwards, numerous French companies have participated in the development of Singapore’s transport infrastructure. Today, we offer proven and innovative public transport infrastructure and green vehicles for the full range of mobility services matching Singapore’s urban development vision and air quality targets. We also provide intelligent transport systems and sharing solutions to ensure efficient,[…]
We guarantee citizens’ safety and security by providing advanced sensing technologies, video analysis, and data analytics to detect and anticipate incidents, coordinate stakeholders, and improve response to emergencies and major crisis. While Singapore wants to increase the capacity of the city’s port by about 50 per cent over the next years, we also offer integrated solutions[…]
Our solutions process the massive amount of data generated by smart cities by combining high bandwidth connectivity and network solutions. They help governments to provide quality public services and release public data sets; companies to build strong customer relationships and unlock innovation; citizens to access e-services seamlessly and develop an “i-kampong” community. A 2015 agreement[…]
Cities will become less energy-consuming and eventually energy-positive. We facilitate this energy transition in two ways: first by producing renewable energy adapted to the territory, such as solar energy in Singapore and in the Asian tropical sunbelt; second by adding an intelligence layer to existing power grids, in order to integrate intermittent and dispersed renewable[…]
High quality and affordable water, waste reduction and waste-to-resource strategy are key challenges of the circular economy. Singapore has long proven its capacity to use technology to overcome its physical constraints in this area. With more than hundred years of expertise in being partners to cities in environmental management, French companies can deliver innovative services[…]
