Beacons to provide for seamless navigation in KL Eco City

Extensive pedestrian and transport links ensure that those in KL Eco City enjoy seamless connectivity.

KL Eco City visitors and tenants can now have a seamless navigation within the transit-oriented development.

The uninterrupted connection is a result of the installation of Waze Beacons at the lower tier roads in the eco city.

These beacons are battery-operated, low-energy micro-controller hardware that are installed on tunnel walls.

Once installed, they will transmit a wireless signal that can be picked up by mobile devices that support bluetooth.

Drivers will only have to turn on their mobile phone’s bluetooth setting for an uninterrupted location service, especially when WiFi or GPS connectivity is unavailable.

The service is a free and open technology, which means, Wazers or users of other navigation services like Google Maps can also benefit.

With real-time traffic updates, this will improve driver routing and safety within KL Eco City.

The solution is in line with the integrated development’s vision to be a top transit-oriented development.

Kl Eco City has a unique internal road system, comprising upper and lower tier roads to facilitate smoother incoming and outgoing traffic flow.

The seamless connectivity is taken further with six dedicated new bridges and ramps with direct connection to Federal Highway, New Pantai Expressway, Jalan Maarof and Jalan Bangsar.

KL Eco City is an award-winning development, having won FIABCI World Prix

d’Excellence Award 2020.

Located in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, the development consists of commercial offices, luxury residential towers, lifestyle retail outlets and an upcoming business-class hotel.
