Singapore’s Smart Nation solution, which aims to merge technology into every aspect of life on the small island trying to merge technology into every aspect of citizens’ lives. New tracking means that commuters can track where the bus is. If the route has traffic ahead, how many people are on the bus and how fast or slow the bus is going. Handy, as Singapore clocks up four million daily bus rides.
Hospitals are also being technologically radicalised as some patient to doctor appointments are hosted over video conferencing. These are typically for non-emergency cases with most come from expectant mothers and children. This technology saves time and travel.
NDB’s Northshore Residences (I & II to be completed in 2020), will feature the first HDB flats which will have the smart technology pre-installed in the infrastructure to support smart home solutions such as heating control.
Singapore is trailing their Housing and Development Board (HDB) Smart Home, which includes an app you can download, monitor the elderly and alert authorities or a family member if they’ve had a fall. The app can also monitor electricity, water, and energy usage. It will also start to learn your daily routine and save these patterns. Another added feature is automation to save you energy, cutting down on the small nation’s energy and light pollution.

Singapore is also investigating somewhat futuristic technology such as Driverless cars. In June 2016, Gardens by the Bay launched the Auto Rider for public rides, with cars that can hold up to 10 passengers.
This nation is clearly seeing the ongoing reliance on technology and is doing something about it. Should the UK follow their lead and let technology rule our cities?
