Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta, is a fast-growing city that is home to more than 10 million people, making it the second-most populous urban area after Tokyo. Providing services for such a large population has placed massive burdens — including financial and administrative — on the local government.
Amid the growing challenges the world faces due to climate change, the public’s attention has increasingly shifted towards technological solutions aimed at reducing humanity’s collective carbon footprint. While sectors such as intelligent homes often receive the largest share of the limelight, the regulation of power at its source remains just as important — if not more — to the energy transformation underpinning smart cities.
Modern practices, while arguably significantly advanced compared to the limits of the past, still has rooms for improvement when considering the potentials of convenience and efficacy through incorporation with AIoT.
One of the core functions of any government is to provide safety and security for its citizens. While the dangers posed by fires and natural disasters have not changed, the equipment and techniques employed by first responders have evolved significantly over the past few centuries.
Since the earliest thermometers were developed, taking point-in-time temperature readings has been the standard of care. Recently, Internet of Things (IoT) technology has made it possible to monitor body temperature continuously and remotely. Introducing Temp Pal, a wearable temperature sensor that not only accurately gathers vital sign data, but is also comfortable, unobtrusive and affordable — opening up many mainstream use cases to improve the lives of patients in institutional care and at home.
ounded by experts in medicine and electronics, Heroic-Faith Medical Science Co. Ltd. aims to save lives through technological innovation. The firm’s inaugural respiratory auscultation monitor proved especially invaluable in the COVID-19 pandemic, helping physicians stay safe while continuously monitoring patient lung functionality from a distance.
A-MTK has also kept up with technological trends. Answering the development of the IoT concept, greater demand for peer-to-peer (P2P) “Smart Home” platforms in 2016, A-MTK designed and produced its own P2P IP camera products, compatible with the platform-as-a-service (PAAS) and systems-as-a-service (SAAS) models for cloud services.
The A-MTK company, founded in 2006, is a manufacturer and provider for surveillance cameras, encompassing a wide range of functions. Its policy to base manufacturing, as well as research and development, of its products in Taiwan, resulted in the company retaining a robust and experienced crew of engineers.
More than three decades of experience sets Hunt Electronic apart in the surveillance field. After achieving a smooth transition from analog to digital networking, the firm is now pivoting toward artificial intelligence (AI), edge computing and other smart imaging solutions in areas often overlooked by traditional security firms, from long-term care to traffic flow, while still providing the benefits of experience and dedicated manufacturing.
Brand new care solutions for an aging society
Amid a falling birthrate and lengthening life expectancies, Taiwanese society is aging rapidly, with one in every five people projected to be aged over 65 as soon as the year 2025. Long-term care centers have seen a corresponding uptick in utilization, leaving many increasingly understaffed and stretched for resources.
Municipal governments worldwide are facing an ever-growing number of challenges, such as climate change and, most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, the resources they have on hand to deal with such crises continue to dwindle, especially funding and personnel.
