City speeds up digital urban management upgrade
Digital upgrade has begun on Nanjing Road E. and technologies like cloud, big data, artificial intelligence, edge computing and 5G have been adopted, according to officials from the Huangpu District government and Huawei, a major partner in the upgrade.
Upgraded digital services include pedestrian traffic monitoring, security checks and automatic warnings, parking management and fire prevention.
Shanghai will upgrade digital management systems in “every street and every building” to improve urban management and boost its digital transformation, according to the city’s 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-2025).
Similar systems will be adopted throughout the city, which are considered pillars of urban management.
