i-City Properties, a subsidiary of IBerhad, today announced a partnership with China Mobile International (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd to further enhance i-City by building the first smart green building in the country.
“The corporate tower will be equipped with 5G internet-enabled cameras and sensors to monitor the environment, energy consumption, and human traffic flow for data gathering purposes. With the artificial intelligence (AI) technology incorporated into the building fabric, energy used to power lights, air conditioning, and other electrical equipment can be tuned automatically based on the weather and number of people inside the building, said i-City director Monica Ong.
“Conversely, resource planning for security and cleanliness too can be managed more effectively adding that with sufficient data gathered, machines connected to the building will be able to identify and highlight to the building management peak hours and number of cleaners and security personnel required ahead of time with the
capability of AI.”
Last year, DoubleTree moved into i-City with innovative concept in sustainability like the guest room management system whereby rooms are pre-cooled to about 25 degrees Celsius when they arrive at the lobby, biometrics enabled lighting, and curtain control as well as smart door lock system. She added that with the rollout of 5G this year, i-City will be working on numerous AI enhancements to ensure that the ultrapolis maintains its position as Malaysia’s first
and most progressive smart city.
CMIM director of enterprise Jackie Chen Jiang Long, believes the tech solution provider can continuously develop innovative ICT-based solutions to help save energy and reduce carbon footprints in order to protect the environmental ecosystem.
