KUALA LUMPUR: I-Bhd's subsidiary, i-City Properties (i-City) has teamed up with China Mobile International (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (CMIM) 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,” i-City director Monica Ong said in a statement.
“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,” she added.
Ong said with the rollout of 5G this year, i-City would be working on numerous AI enhancements to ensure that the ultrapolis maintains its position as Malaysia's first and most progressive smart city.
