Taiwan, Thailand link up for development of smart cities

System Integration Promotion Alliance (SIPA), a program from Taiwan’s Industrial Development Bureau, last month brought smart city and IoT companies to visit Bangkok and attend the Smart City Industry Forum and the Taiwan-Thailand Industrial Collaboration Summit (TTICS) among other activities as part of efforts to foster collaboration between their smart city sectors.

At TTICS, Sinotech Engineering Consultants signed a memorandum of understanding with AMATA to create development trials in Thailand around smart city projects. This cooperation will lead to clustering of innovative technologies with strong commercial outcomes.

“This time, SIPA has brought more than 10 market ready system integration solutions ranging from transportation to farming, said Vivian Huang, director general of the Taiwan’s International Division at Institute for Information Industry.” “We are ready to work closely with our partners to help the world innovate on the future of cities and tech.”

Participating companies included GEOSAT Aerospace & Technology, ACTi, Cal-Comp Electronics (Thailand), Chicony Power Technology, Forecraft USA, Galaxy Software Services and Guali Tech.

Across six areas, including smart transportation, smart healthcare, smart security, smart energy conservation, smart agriculture and smart retail, the SIPA platform brings together relevant partners to accelerate solutions.
