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
