In the afternoon of September 11, the CEO club of Quang Trung Software City (QTSC) held a meeting at QTSC Building 9 with the topic on QTSC towards a green, smart city model, hosted by its CEO Lam Nguyen Hai Long.
According to Long, since 2016, QTSC has taken many initiatives to digitize all technical infrastructure, deploy a Geographic Information System (GIS) to manage the park, as well as pilot systems like the Smart Office and Car Detector. In 2017, QTSC continued to implement technology solutions like a bike sharing system to improve internal traffic as well as an environmental management system to monitor 12 wastewater parameters. Other solutions include a smart public lighting system with 157 energy-saving light bulbs and a smart water metering system that helps resolve problems more efficiently and draw up a repair and maintenance plan.
In addition, QTSC has joined forces with a number of organizations to research and apply new technologies in agriculture. The Smart Agri system was designed to automate the management processes of greenhouse farming. This project also laid the foundations for the launch of the Agricultural Centre of Excellence in the beginning of 2017, which covers an area of 2,500 square metres at Lot 3 in QTSC. The center continues to improve and test different models, such as container gardening, hydroponic cultivation for home farms, and seeding robots, among others.
QTSC CEO Lam Nguyen Hai Long introduced the smart city model
In 2018, QTSC has collaborated with software companies in the park to conduct intensive scientific research activities as well as promote applied research projects that have a practical socioeconomic impact. In addition, QTSC has made the most of the companies’ strengths to develop the Integrated Operation Centre (IOC) which uses Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to manage and monitor the park. QTSC has also built a specialized area to research and develop new products and solutions (QTSC R&D Labs). QTSC R&D Labs was established to create a public space for research and development, supporting enterprises in their research as well as attracting many leading experts to work at QTSC.
In June 2018, QTSC has become the first state-owned company in Ho Chi Minh City to receive the Certificate of Science and Technology Business. This reflects QTSC’s efforts to apply technology to improve efficiency and uplift its image as a tech hub.
Based on these initial results, QTSC is striving to optimize existing solutions and develop new ones, gradually integrate data and apps on the same platform, and build open platforms for third-party customers.
The application of the smart urban model at QTSC is a long-term process and is one of the primary objectives to improve infrastructure and service quality, as well as create a professional living and working environment to serve businesses operating in the park better, Long emphasized.
