LTA, SMRT, StarHub and IBM collaborate to improve transport with data for Singapore commuters

The Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA), SMRT Corporation Ltd (SMRT) StarHub and IBM are collaborating to apply fusion analytics to create a state-of-the-art public transport system that will improve the commuter experience across Singapore.

The LTA and IBM will create a Fusion AnalyticS for public Transport Emergency Response (FASTER) blueprint for better crowd management and proactive information services by using data-driven analytic models that provide situational awareness, impact prediction and actionable insights for mitigating the anticipated impact.

As part of the FASTER agreement, the LTA and IBM will work together to combine farecard data and information from industry partners: SMRT Corporation Ltd (SMRT) who will provide the video data from select MRT stations; and StarHub will provide anonymized telecommunications data for aggregate-level mobility analysis. By using data to extract actionable insights, transport operators and authorities will be able to provide better information services to their employees and passengers.
