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.
SmartJAMP(2021) Pre-feasibility Study on the Introduction of a Public Transport Management System for the Realization of Smart City in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam
Brunei is a car-oriented society, with multiple vehicles registered per driver's license holder. Due to this, the public transportation system has not been sufficiently developed and is not convenient enough to be used by a wide range of people and tourists in Brunei, and the development of this public transportation system has been an issue for many years. This time, through the research to identify issues and needs specific to Brunei, the demonstration plan for introduction of a "smart bus shelter and public transportation management system" using Japanese technology will be created that is suitable for the local conditions and needs.
