Due to the pandemic and limitations on travel, the exchange sessions for the sixth IoT Tech Expo Europe took place primarily online. The city government and its partners were involved in discussion and exchange with other delegates in areas such as smart service applications and actual Proof of Concept (PoC) cases.
On topics such as AIoT in school campus management system, realtime detection system as smart school campus security solution, AI digital road information integration platform deployment for managing road hazards and road assets, utilization of WiFi signal for smart detection and management of senior citizens’ health, local partners from Taipei organized exciting online demos of smart solutions, which attracted over 4,557 industry personnel. The matchmaking sessions ensured further talks for 3 private sector partners as well.
Director Lee Chen-yu of the Taipei Smart City Project Management Office presented a speech on “Taipei Smart City and PoC Practices in IoT Area” at the event. He introduced the concept of Smart Taipei and the related mechanisms, as well as sharing some of the successful PoC projects with listeners.
