Details :

The 2017 Policy Address announced the launch of the pilot Multi-functional Smart Lamppost scheme at selected urban locations to support the building of a smart city with city-wide coverage of data and network.  The smart lampposts will provide convenient data services and collect various real-time city data, enhance city and traffic management, and complement the future infrastructure development for fifth generation (5G) mobile communications services in Hong Kong.

Under the Pilot Scheme, some 400 smart lampposts will be equipped in phases with smart devices in four selected urban locations in Central/Admiralty, Wan Chai, Yau Tsim Mong and Kwun Tong/Kai Tak Development Area to collect real-time city data at district level, such as meteorological data, air quality, traffic flow, etc.  The Government has been adopting various measures to protect privacy, step up publicity and public engagement and explore privacy friendly technology solutions.

We actively explore the use of Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology to replace camera in detection of vehicle speeds and identification of different types of vehicles.  Besides, positioning devices including Geo-marker, Geo-QR code tag, Bluetooth beacon and RFID tag are installed.  All data collected will be released to the public as open data via the Public Sector Information (“PSI”) portal (data.gov.hk).  The data will be useful to support government services and development of innovative applications by the industry, such as providing citizens and tourists with information about public facilities in their vicinity.
