Launches CitySense Brand for Smart City Solutions Suite

Singapore, 10 July 2018 – With two-thirds of ST Engineering’s growth over the next five years projected to be from overseas, ST Engineering today announced that it is intensifying its Smart City expansion plans in the US, South East Asia and the Middle East. The Group has been engaging government authorities and decision makers, starting with the US and Saudi Arabia, and is looking at Smart City projects such as those targeted at infrastructural upgrades. The Group is also working with both public and private sector partners and customers including industrial manufacturers, urban planners, master developers, road transportation authorities, and security agencies in its global expansion efforts for Smart City.

To facilitate its Smart City expansion plans, ST Engineering announced the launch of CitySense, the brand for its integrated Smart City solutions suite aimed at addressing the mega-trend of mass urbanisation and targeting city planners who need customised, reliable and safe technology solutions that are weaved seamlessly into urban planning and development. To make for efficient urban planning, CitySense addresses issues such as city congestion, lack of physical and cybersecurity, energy inefficiencies and utility wastages. It is wide ranging in digital capabilities such as data analytics, artificial intelligence and robotics, and have been adopted by clients in transportation, urban development, security, utilities, aviation and the maritime industry all over the world.

“Cities were not built to accommodate the current scale of mass urbanisation and the rate at which the population around the world is ageing. This is why Smart City technologies need to, at its core, be people-centric, built-to-design and custom-made to address each city’s unique requirements – from its demographics to physical to social and economic conditions,” said Mr Chew Men Leong, Chief Marketing Officer of ST Engineering.   “ST Engineering’s advantage in Smart Cities is not just our solid track record nor integrated technology and engineering expertise. We also have the ability to create strong and differentiated IP, and adapt our business models to best suit our customers. This is why we can help our customers transform their city developments at the core through our suite of Smart Mobility, Smart Security and Smart Environment solutions.”

ST Engineering has implemented more than 500 Smart City projects across 70 cities worldwide.  Latest developments include its Memorandum of Signing (MOU) with Keppel Urban Solutions to design and execute Smart City Masterplans in cities across Asia.   The Group also signed a MOU with JTC to design, build and deploy customised Smart City solutions on an Open Digital Platform for Punggol Digital District, a 50-hectare District landmarked as a key element of Singapore’s Smart Nation vision. JTC is the lead government agency in Singapore responsible for the planning and development of industrial infrastructure.  Apart from these, ST Engineering is also an invited Smart City solutions provider in the government-initiated ASEAN Smart Cities network, scaling up along with our partners in Singapore.

The Group is currently showcasing its Smart City capabilities at these three exhibitions: World Cities Summit, LTA-UITP Singapore Intelligent Transport Congress and Exhibition, and the Singapore International Water Week, all held concurrently at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands from 8 to 12 July 2018.
