Pudong urban management goes smart

The Pudong New Area is taking an intelligent approach on urban management covering 57 scenarios that break the boundaries of different areas and government authorities.

These scenarios are interconnected and refer to different application areas such as the disposal spots of trash, garbage trucks, the living areas of seniors at nursing facilities, residential complexes, and garbage treatment plants.

A smart “city brain” system was launched in Pudong late last year, and an upgrade has been conducted recently, merging 165 scenarios in economic, social and urban governance to 57 integrated scenes, the Pudong New Area government said yesterday.

The Internet plus-oriented innovation changes the traditional way of social governance to digital ways and aims to improve the efficiency of management and better serve the public, said Wu Qiang, Pudong’s deputy governor.

The area has a large coverage of garbage collection and a long management chain, and traditional means could not meet the increasing service and management demand, posing challenges in the supervision and management of trash sorting, said Xue Jillian, deputy director of Pudong’s Ecology and Environment Bureau.

“Relying on technologies such as the Internet of Things, big data analysis and intelligent monitoring, the system now tackles long-term management woes such as garbage spillover at residential complexes and leakages during transportation.”

The application scenes cover the whole process of trash handling from disposal to transportation and terminal treatment, he said.

It can spot 16 types of problems such as abnormal proportions of dry and wet garbage content, overloading of trucks, and violation of environmental regulations.
