During his keynote, he said: "The Smart Traffic Analytics and Recognition System that we are inaugurating today is the result of collaboration. This is just the first of the many future smart collaborations that we aim to undertake in the areas of infrastructure, environment, social and economy within Cyberjaya."
"Through efforts such as the one we have today with VADS Lyfe, the tech innovation sandbox here will be further enriched with smart solutions benefiting our city population. Ultimately, we hope to see not only the people of Cyberjaya, but also the broader population of Malaysians, enjoying cutting-edge smart city solutions developed and fine-tuned right here in Cyberjaya," he said.
Massimo Miglioulo, chief executive officer, VADS Lyfe said, "The Smart Traffic Analytics and Recognition System is a cost effective system for brownfield areas such as Cyberjaya, because it leverages on TM's existing infrastructure. We can now dynamically adjust the green period for each traffic light and connect remotely to the next. By doing so, the adjacent traffic lights will have the awareness of its neighbouring junctions thus optimising the flow from one junction to the next. With a smoother traffic flow, the road users here can save their travel time and money, making Cyberjaya a more efficient city that enriches its community, in line with our brand promise, 'Life Made Easier'."
Miglioulo said that in collaboration with Intel, Intel IoT Gateway technology was deployed to analyse the data streamed in from the Internet Protocol-based CCTV. The analytics will allow dynamic controlling of the traffic lights to optimise the flow, and adapt the system to future traffic conditions and needs. The adoption of the Intel technology also will allow the data to be extended to support city surveillance and assist with town planning activities.
The Smart Traffic Analytics and Recognition System is developed under Cyberview's Smart City initiative and supported by Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) through the Smart City Catalyst fund.
