Smart JAMP(2022) Study for the Realization of Smart City in Bandar Seri Begawan, Burunei Darussalam
Brunei is a motorized society with a large number of private cars relative to the number of licensed drivers, and there is no rail transportation system. As for public transportation, a minibus circulates around the city, but its operation time is not accurate and it is considered inconvenient. Then, the Brunei government aims to increase the number of public bus users in the medium to long term.
In this study for the realization of improvement of public transport through digitalization, pilot project will be implemented to visualize vehicle real time information by using a cloud-based traffic control system. It will also acquire and analyze travel demand data by time of day and location to generate optimal bus schedules. In addition, survey how to integrate with the operation management system and the detailed functions that the smart bus shelter will take on for a smart bus shelter implementation in the future.
SmartJAMP(2021) Pre-feasibility Study on the Introduction of Clean River Management System for the Realization of Smart City in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam
Plastic waste floating in the river is currently a major social problem in the capital city of Brunei. Reducing the amount of plastic waste in the Brunei River is a major issue because of the beautiful city of Brunei. Therefore, Japan is considering introducing Smart River Management in cooperation with the Brunei government. We have just started introducing an automatic remote monitoring system for river debris as a first step. When Smart River Management is realized, we will be able to know where and how much plastic waste is flowing into the Brunei River in real-time. The river debris monitoring system is expected to be very effective in helping the government take appropriate measures against floating plastic waste and educate the public.
