Project Bus Stop re-imagines how people transit, interact and socialise in this public space featuring interactive smart boards that provide content and services such as bus arrival timings, a green roof and artwork by local illustrator Lee Xin Li.
Project Bus Stop’s features will be in operation for a year from this month, with the public encouraged to give feedback at AUDE@ura.gov.sg.
Sensors will be deployed in parks to adjust the lighting based on factors such as the time of day and motion detection. Sensors will be able to detect illegal smoking and determine the cleanliness of public areas. Sensors on smartphones can even send data on how bumpy a bus ride is.
These are some of the 15 innovations to be tried out in Jurong as a test bed for Singapore’s push to be a “smart nation”. The upcoming Jurong Lake District will give Singaporeans a glimpse into the future.
