This platform, through the following process, works together to bring about non-revenue water reduction, improvement in planning confidence, improvement in response management, etc. Moving on to waste, Singapore’s current waste management system functions as follows: The smart bin uses the ‘ultrasonic UBi sensor’. This is a plug and play device that reports real- time fill-level data to the SmartBin live portal. The sensor and route planning software allows simple and smart waste and recycling collection through following process: Intelligent Energy System (IES), launched in 2009, is a smart grid system that provides real- time information on how electricity is used. IES attempts to improve efficiency of network operations and facilitate active participation among consumers by connecting intelligent homes, vehicles, communities, electricity network sensors and sources of green generation.

Singapore’s IES Pilot implemented in two phases. The phase 1 that began in 2010 focused on

developing the enabling infrastructure and the testing of smart meters that are equipped with communication capabilities. This initial phase established two-way data communication. Phase 2 began in 2012 and this evaluated customer application which ride on advance metering infrastructure. The main focus of phase 2 was to engage the customers through applications trials. Smart meters that are equipped with communication capabilities play an especially vital role in allowing the system to be two-way channel. They provide both consumers and the grid operator with information on how much electricity they are using. Other measures to be energy efficient include smart streetlight, which is designed to detect motion and adjust automatically, as well as sending signal to city officials when faulty is anticipated to be fully implemented. Smart technologies are expected to work together to reduce energy wastage while promoting a sustainable and greener urban environment. In line with the eGov Master plans over the past three decades, various e-Government programmes have been or will be introduced to fit its Smart Nation Visions. The programmes are usually in the form of smart phone applications to serve all three groups: Citizens, Business and Government. Government agencies are also encouraged to develop their own applications, to meet different needs of the citizens. Implementing agencies operate in a discrete manner in Singapore. Even under the Smart Nation initiative, there seems to be no intention to have a physically integrated Operations Centre. There are number of different command centres that are managed by individual agencies and these agencies only come together at the time of emergency. Although interest for IOCC is not there, Singaporean Government sees the need to develop an integrated data sharing platform, where all agencies can access commonly shared data collected from shared smart sensor network.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
