The event organized by the People’s Committee of Hà Nội, the Asian-Oceanian Computing Industry Organization (ASOCIO) and the Việt Nam Software and IT Services (Vinasa).
During the summit, delegates shared visions, strategies and experiences of smart urban building and collect opinions from managers and IT experts on smart urban management, planning and development based on new technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality (AR).
At the conference, MK Group had the booth with the aim of displaying and introducing solutions to help create smart cities in an effective and practical way.
Among solutions proposed by MK Group at the seminar, eTicket solution is of high interest for its especially effective applicability in public transportation, i.e. buses, trains, high-speed rails, automatic/smart parking. As a member of the two largest public transport card standard organizations, the CAPLYPSO standards of Calypso Networks Association and CIRPUSE standards of Open Alliance for Public Transportation (OSPT) Alliance, MK Group solutions can easily integrate electronic ticketing standards developed by various contractors for public transportation systems in Vietnam.
Besides, security authentication solution, card issuance and smartcard applications such as prepaid card payment, event ticket management solutions were also introduced at the conference.
The conference brought together over 600 delegates, who are leaders of central-level offices, Hanoi and other localities keen on building smart cities, associations, organizations and IT-related enterprises, together with nearly 70 foreign delegates from 20 nations and economies around the world.
Ha Noi, Da Nang City, HCM City and Can Tho City will be chosen to be the core of smart city networks in the northern, central, southern and Mekong Delta regions, respectively. Ha Noi is home to nearly eight million people, with an average density of more than 2,279 people per sq.km, even 42,000 people per sq.km in some districts.
The budget for implementing the program was lifted to 3 trillion VNĐ (more than US$127.7 million) from 1.25 trillion VNĐ, creating a foundation for Ha Noi to promote socio-economic development and become a smart city.
