DANANG – This year’s feasibility study by WeGO has come to an end with a final report in Danang, Vietnam.
WeGO’s Administrative Director met with Danang’s Director of the Department of Information and Communication, to present the conclusions from WeGO’s Smart Sustainable City Feasibility Study Program 2018. A total of 30 Danang officials were present from the Department of Information and Communication, Department of Foreign Affairs, and Danang City Data Centre (DATRAMAC) at the two-day series in the Southeast Asian nation’s fifth largest city.
The aim of this year’s study set out to achieve a data analytics platform for smart traffic. Two Korean companies, IGB & Company – a consulting firm that also does research and feasibility studies in the fields of sustainable development, environmental conservation, and ICT – and DataStreams – a data management company that specializes in ICT and e-government consulting and big data analysis solutions – were contracted to devise a model for the city toward its implementation of a new traffic data management system.
With the end of the study, a pilot project is now scheduled to be carried out for the next six months until June 2019.
The feasibility study and pilot project program is an annually run initiative by WeGO, which has so far invested a total of about half a million dollars in cities around the world. Last year, WeGO dedicated its resources toward the implementation of a smart waste management using big data, IoT, and mobile technology in La Marsa, Tunisia.
