Dubai Health Authority - Salama and NABIDHA
Salama, will establish a unified electronic medical record system for patients across all public hospitals, primary care facilities and other medical facilities. Its sister initiative, NABIDHA, will extend this medical record across all private hospitals, creating the first fully integrated patient record system. Shared patient data between public and private hospitals, primary care facilities and emergency services will lead to dramatic improvements in patient care as doctors and first responders benefit from instant access to patient records, meaning correct diagnosis and treatment plans will be delivered in record time informed by patient’s medical histories.
Dubai Electricity & Water Authority - Shams Dubai
Shams Dubai allows households to install solar photovoltaic panels and generate electricity for their own consumption. DEWA will connect the system to its network. The electricity will be used onsite and the surplus is exported to DEWA’S gridby installing solar panels, residents can contribute to diversifying Dubai’s energy sources and supporting a green economy and the sustainable development of Dubai.
What is Smart Dubai’s role? The Smart Dubai initiative, formally undertaken in March 2014, aims to establish Dubai as the happiest city by 2017. The initiative is driven by four key strategic pillars and six dimensions that will classify all smart initiatives citywide. The vision to becoming the happiest city in the world is close to becoming a reality, with technology taking the helm as the enabler to transform Dubai into one of the smartest and most connected cities in the world. To fulfill our mission to create happiness, we are embracing technology innovation—making Dubai the most efficient, seamless, safe and impactful experience for residents and visitors. We recently launched the Smart Dubai Platform in partnership with Du, which is the digital backbone for our smart city, uniting city infrastructure, open and shared data, enabling services and city-wide smart applications, the platform will become the central operating system of Dubai. It will be unlike any other smart city platform operating in the world today. To achieve our ambitious mandate, Smart Dubai has pioneered the most comprehensive blueprint globally, encompassing the whole city, not just one sector or district. We are unifying operations to enable impact across the city, from infrastructure connected to the Internet of Things, to open data and shared data, deriving insights and innovation.
How does Smart Dubai engage citizens, residents, and visitors for feedback on the implementation of all the initiatives? How is the impact of every service measured? The Happiness Meter is one of Dubai’s first strategic ‘smart city’ initiatives. As the world’s first, city-wide, live sentiment capture engine, the meter represents a measurement gauge for the happiness goal. However, the Happiness Meter is more than just another silo tool to collect experience feedback: through the centralized data dashboard a map of happiness across the city can be created, which allows government entity hosts of Happiness Meter touch points to relate and rank customer experiences within industry sectors and geographic areas, as well as differentiate between direct and web based interactions. The Happiness Meter, currently in its first phase, will be soon rolling out into the private sector and in the future we do intend to use
d3 has incorporated the smart city platform from its earliest planning stages, what are the smart initiatives we should expect to see at d3 once the current project is complete? d3’s aim is to implement Smart solutions that will bring significant benefits to business partners, visitors and district operations – and, importantly, to Dubai as a Smart City. d3 will implement numerous smart initiatives that are built around Smart Dubai’s four pillars – efficient, seamless, safe and impactful – and that address six Smart City dimensions covering Smart Economy, Smart Living, Smart Environment, Smart Governance, Smart People and Smart Mobility.
Through these technologicallyenhanced initiatives, d3’s business partners will benefit by saving on resource consumption, they will receive an enriched customer experience, improved safety standards, and they will be able to tap into effective, realtime data analytics that help drive their business forward. The smart initiatives that d3 demonstrated at the IOT forum last December include: Visualization of city data on a 9x3 meter interactive display, showcasing the upcoming Command and Control Centre’s (CCC) digital platform which aggregates live data from various sensors, enterprise data sources and third party applications, conducts advanced data analytics, and supports a wide spectrum of urban services. The CCC is a multifunctional tool with its key points including: Next Generation Data Visualization, Data Integration, Energy Monitoring, Common Area Fire Monitoring, Environmental monitoring, Smart Parking and Waste Management.
“Smart d3” Mobile Application which offers three original features: 1) a parking function which enables the most effective and economic parking; 2) notifications that allows d3 to effectively communicate and provide alerts about important events and developments; 3) “report a missing object” service which allows d3’s tenants to report and retrieve lost and misplaced items.
Interactive Teller Machine, in collaboration with NCR, that acts as a “mini-branch in a box”, where a customer can achieve 95% of the transactions processed in the branch without the need to visit the branch, helping customers save time and reduce congestion, thus improving productivity while conserving the environment.
Samtech Smart Waste Management system which uses wireless sensors to measure the fill level of containers as well as GPS locaters to enable job scheduling and route optimisation for more efficient waste collection. The solution allows facility managers at d3 to schedule collections and track KPI’S to ensure the agreed service level agreements with contractors are met.
Could you give us an idea what a day in a d3 resident life would be like? [considering they also work in the district) d3 is a dynamic community for the design industry in its broadest sense, encompassing segments such as fashion, interiors, architecture, arts and luxury design. We are creating a place for the region’s designers and design enthusiasts to live, work and play, offering a mix of residential, commercial, retail and hospitality real estate. As a Smart City we aim to foster a rich experience that connects the community and allows district residents to interact with each other and with the district at large.
In the future, d3 business partners will have a seamless commute to work, whether by private vehicle or public transport. In d3, parking systems will recognize cars and open the gate automatically, then guide drivers to their designated parking area. Kiosks and bus stations will be equipped with interactive screens allowing users to check timings by destination and get live updates on incoming buses, or request a nearby taxi and track its progress. All services can also be accessed through a single d3 app.
Walking into their office building, business partners gain access thanks to the 3D face recognition system deployed
