Barcelona, November 2018
A Worldsensing project with AIC Group Vietnam has been selected as a finalist for the Digital Transformation Award at the World Smart City Awards 2018 which are part of the Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC 2018).
The World Smart City Awards seek to reward pioneering projects, ideas, and strategies that promote sustainable urban development around the globe. The Digital Transformation Award specifically recognizes the most innovative and successful projects that are already being implemented and developed in a specific urban field.
“We are proud to be among the finalists for this year’s World Smart City Awards. We believe that our partner, AIC Group Vietnam, is instrumental in the success of this endeavor. With our projects, we aim to help our partners to digitize and transform the operations of cities and industries around the world,“ says Francesc Domingo, Worldsensing Chief Evangelist.
Smart City Project Overview
The entry titled ‘How a province in Vietnam is becoming a digital province and is transforming Vietnam Into a Smart Nation’ is a joint initiative with AIC Group, a Worldsensing partner in Vietnam. The project is transforming how provinces and the central government are communicating with each other and how city leaders are enabled to access data to establish new policies and make better future investments. Provincial government units will have access to real-time city insights:
– enabling citizens to access relevant information and report incidents,
– offering important information to tourists
– and providing local and international businesses with access to development KPIs of the province.
Overall, the project aims to decrease manual reports by 20% and to reduce response times to anomalies by 15%.
Smart Cities powered by OneMind – the intelligent IoT solution builder
As part of this project, all existing systems, real-time data, and correlated information are integrated in one single solution, the core technology by Worldsensing called OneMind. While other smart city initiatives focus on digitizing one specific government functional area, the project aims to integrate multiple data sources from the start, an investment that will prove to be more beneficial moving forward.
