Singapore scores highest in Smart City Rankings

 

Ranked as the top smart city, Singapore scores highest on all innovation criteria with a special focus on Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) and Freight-as-a-Service (FaaS) to maintain its leading role as a transportation and freight hub with driverless taxis, autonomous shuttles and platooning trials and projects, according to a new competitive assessment report by ABI Research, a market-foresight advisory firm providing strategic guidance on the most compelling transformative technologies. Additionally, Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative addresses a wide range of urban issues linked to high-density living.

The Smart City Ranking competitive assessment ranked 10 megacities across developed regions: New York (United States), Los Angeles (United States), Paris (France)London (United Kingdom), Dubai (United Arab Emirates), Beijing(China), Shanghai (China), Singapore (Singapore), Tokyo (Japan), and Seoul (South Korea) based on ABI Research’s proven innovation/implementation criteria framework. Each city was analyzed according to their innovation programs, strategies and implementation achievements measured through verifiable metrics for congestion, air quality, GDP, crime rates, and cost of living. In terms of innovation, cities are assessed on the extent of which they are embracing out-of-the-box thinking and planning to deploy disruptive technologies to fundamentally address the issues and challenges of megacities of the future across areas like mobility, transportation, energy, education, healthcare, and public services.

Singapore emerge as smart city leaders, excelling in innovation in terms of the adoption of next-generation technologies and disruptive smart city paradigms as structural solutions for hard problems. Singapore also score high across most of the implementation criteria like congestion management, crime prevention, and safety.
