Smart Environment Steering Group
The framework of Taipei Smart City takes “smart government” as the core value, and promotes “smart security”, “smart building”, “smart transportation”, “smart education”, “smart healthcare”, “smart environment”, and “smart economy” to be the blueprint for the future development. In order to achieve it, “1+7 smart city steering groups” were established.
The smart environment steering group, chaired by the Deputy Commissioner of Department of Environmental Protection, convenes the Public Works Department, Taipei Feitsui Reservoir Administration, Taipei Water Department, the Department of Information Technology, and outside experts forms the interaction between citizens and the environment to increase convenience and quality of life through using technology in Taipei. Smart environment, the vision of the promoting framework, advances in the directions of constructing a sustainable environment, ensuring health & safety, and strengthening urban development. At present, the steering group has accumulated a few relevant PoC projects, such as water supply management, water source management, and flood control.
