Indonesian property developer Lippo Karawaci and Japan-based conglomerate SoftBank Corp have partnered to integrate smart city technology solutions in the former’s real-estate projects and mobility ecosystems in Indonesia.

 

The strategic alliance will see the companies co-operate in the development and deployment of artificial intelligence- (AI) and Internet of Things- (IoT) powered solutions in the Lippo Village community in Karawaci.

 

Central hub of technology

 

The township, which is located near Jakarta, has been designated the “priority location” for this project, with plans to develop it as the “central hub of technology applications and research in South East Asia”.

 

SoftBank said it will utilise its technology deployment insights to introduce advanced technologies to shopping malls and other commercial facilities, hospitals and the entire Lippo Village area. Through this, it aims to develop Lippo Village as a model smart city for South East Asia.

 

“We are excited to move forward and collaborate with SoftBank to develop AI- and IoT-based innovative solutions for our customers across the largest integrated real estate and healthcare company in Indonesia,” said John Riady, CEO, Lippo Karawaci.

 

“Within our township, we intend to implement IoT technology through smart cluster management and smart traffic management in Lippo Village.”

 

Smart cluster management utilises advanced camera technology for facial recognition of vehicle occupants and can also read motor vehicle licence plate numbers.

 

Smart traffic management uses CCTV to count the number of vehicles that enter an area, as well as identifying and differentiating between vehicle types including motorcycles, cars, buses and trucks.

 

“Within our township, we intend to implement IoT technology through smart cluster management and smart traffic management in Lippo Village.”

 

In addition, the collaboration will see the introduction of a new analytics platform powered by AI which will link shoppers’ behaviour with special offers and rewards across Lippo’s 51 mall network.

 

“We are very pleased that we could launch this AI and IoT initiative together with Lippo Karawaci to make Lippo Village even more comfortable for residents and tenants,” added Hidebumi Kitahara, vice president and head of global business strategy, SoftBank.
