PETALING JAYA: Gamuda Land and Samsung Malaysia Electronics have collaborated to redefine modern living by integrating cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology into homes, enhancing convenience, and significantly reducing carbon footprints.

As part of the partnership, Gamuda Land and Samsung will join forces to furnish Gamuda Cove’s The Camellia show unit with the comprehensive Samsung Bespoke AI ecosystem – a first in Malaysia.

"As a township developer, we recognise the importance of creating townships that stand the test of time. We meticulously design our master plan components with sustainability at the forefront,” said Gamuda Land chief executive officer Chu Wai Lune.

“Our homes are thoughtfully prepared for the future, being solar-ready with pre-installed conduits for seamless installation of solar panels.

“Recognising the significance of sustainable living, we are excited to collaborate with Samsung, a renowned leader in the market for sustainable and smart home appliances, to further enhance the eco-friendly infrastructure already in place at Gamuda Cove.”

Chu added: “We remain committed to pushing the boundaries of innovation in sustainable living, and this collaboration exemplifies our dedication to creating smarter, more efficient homes that align with the needs of modern consumers.

“By integrating AI technology into our smart home systems, we can provide better value to our homeowners. This is facilitated by the fact that Gamuda Cove is a 5G-ready township, which opens up new possibilities and opportunities for smart city planning. It enables us to remotely monitor, manage, and control devices, and to create new insights and actionable information from massive streams of real-time data.”

Samsung Malaysia Electronics president Denny Kim said, “At Samsung, we are harnessing the power of AI to unlock new and impactful experiences that make life better and simpler for all,

“We are pleased to collaborate with Gamuda Land to demonstrate the capabilities of our Bespoke AI appliances to homeowners, enabling them to enjoy the advantages of an intuitive and connected home environment.”

Samsung's Bespoke AI Home offers future homeowners a remarkable opportunity to enhance their lifestyles by streamlining household chores and enabling them to prioritise personal activities. With AI driven energy management, personalised recommendations based on user behaviour, and seamless integration with various smart devices such as refrigerators, washers, air conditioners, vacuums, and TVs, homeowners can enjoy heightened convenience and efficiency.

The Bespoke lineup features intelligent functions like AI Energy Mode to optimise energy consumption, AI Wash for tailored laundry cycles, and AI Pro Cooking for remote monitoring of oven-cooked dishes. Continuously learning from users' habits, Bespoke AI adapts appliance performance to provide customised services that cater to individual preferences and needs.

Chu shared, “In envisioning Gamuda Cove, our aim was to create a township that can stand the test of time. At the core of smart cities lies the seamless integration of urban functions like digital infrastructure, mobility, environmental monitoring, safety and security, energy systems, sport and recreational, waste and sustainability management. This interconnectedness leverages data to enhance services, elevate living standards, and promote environmental sustainability.

“With AI, the possibilities are endless. For example, AI can power Smart Traffic Light systems, utilising Internet of Things (IoT) and data from sensors and cameras to optimise traffic signals. This not only reduces commute times but also enhances safety and cuts carbon emissions.”

By deploying IoT devices such as surveillance cameras, smart street lighting, and emergency response systems, neighborhoods can be made safer, improving community well-being. Additionally, AI can aid in the creation of smart parking systems, streamlining the search for available parking spots through real-time data from sensors and cameras.

Moreover, AI-driven predictive maintenance systems can enhance the upkeep of mobility infrastructure such as roads, bridges, tunnels, and highways by analysing data to forecast maintenance needs, thereby preventing accidents and minimising downtime.

Leveraging AI and 5G technology, Gamuda Land is exploring the integration of 5G-connected smart grids into their townships. This initiative aims to boost energy efficiency, promising a substantial decrease in overall energy consumption for sustainable long-term development.
