In Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city, if one wants to take bus for work, perhaps one can encounter a free smart bus in the shape of a lovely panda, which can sense and identify its surroundings including vehicles, vulnerable groups on the road and traffic lights, while controlling the vehicle to achieve automatic acceleration, deceleration, steering, emergency braking, lane change and other functions.
On one’s way driving home, there are intelligent traffic lights at the eight key intersections near the Rainbow Bridge, which can be adjusted and dispatched according to the real-time traffic conditions by sensing the traffic flow and queuing length thanks to the application of big data, Internet of Things, edge calculation and other technologies. These traffic lights are as if monitoring traffic conditions to make corresponding adjustments.
In the evening, one can visit the China-Singapore Friendship Library, where all kinds of self-service devices can be found. The library enables navigation services to help borrow books, and book-returning via facial recognition, and has a free-walking intelligent robot “Little Library” to serve readers.
State Grid Corporation of China’s Tianjin Binhai New Area branch has deployed an intelligent early warning system for distribution station in some pilot areas within the eco-city, which achieves accurate on-line early warning and monitoring of potential partial discharge hazards, and let eco-city users enjoy the “zero power outage” service thanks to innovative applications of the electromagnetic wave spatial positioning technology.
It is a new exploration for Binhai New Area to integrate cutting-edge technologies into life to better serve the people and let everyone feel the power of science and technology.
