TM’s 5G tech brings smart city features to Langkawi (Malay Mail)

Three use cases within the Smart Town cluster currently being implemented by Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) in its 5G demonstration project (5GDP) in this island resort is set to ensure the existence of a sustainable, smart and secure city to meet the needs of its residents.

TM ONE’s Emerging Solutions and Innovation director Azrin Aris said the three use cases were the smart traffic light at Jalan Persiaran Putra, smart safety and surveillance in Pantai Chenang, and smart parking along Jalan Pantai Chenang.

“All three components of this Smart City cluster have their own advantages such as a data-driven smart signal solution that provides a single view for monitoring and help improve traffic flow by reducing wait times in traffic lights and improving traffic congestion as well as traffic management.

“While the smart security and surveillance solution is a real-time monitoring system consisting of cameras and monitoring equipment placed in strategic areas for a variety of purposes, including building and area safety, crime prevention and traffic monitoring,” he said when met recently.

Azrin said the smart parking solution, meanwhile, provided real-time parking lot monitoring using cameras and artificial intelligence (AI) that allow users to find empty parking lots using mobile applications.
