Tender for LED Street Lighting with Remote Control & Monitoring System (RCMS) <closed>
A tender has been issued on 4 Jan 2017 for the development of energy-efficient Smart Lighting systems for islandwide deployment along Singapore’s public road networks. The initiative seeks to replace the existing timer-based street lighting system with a Remote Control and Monitoring System (RCMS) and allow the system to be more responsive to weather changes. Besides the RCMS, the initiative seeks to leverage on existing public lighting infrastructure to explore how it may form as a key part of our national sensor communications network; enabling smart, connected and connected sensors to deliver more efficient and smarter services for our citizens.
Interested parties may access the Open Tender “LTA000ETT17300004” on GeBiz. Submissions close at 4pm on 4 Apr 2017.
Call for Proposals (CFP) to develop technical solutions for smart metering trial <closed>
A CFP was issued on 2 Nov 2016 to develop technical solutions for a smart metering trial slated to begin in about 2 years. The objective of the trial is to develop a common platform for remote and automated meter reading of electricity, gas and water meters, so as to provide more timely usage data. The CFP includes proposals for the development of a mobile application for timely and useful information on electricity, water and gas consumption on personal mobile devices such as handphones and tablets to help enhance consumers’ awareness of utility consumption patterns, with the hopes of empowering them to better manage their energy and water consumption.
Deadline for submission of proposals for mobile application development and for the smart metering trial has closed.
