Smart city project will be launched in Ridder

Today, Akim of the region Danial Akhmetov met with the Chairman of the Board of Kazakhtelecom JSC Kuanyshbek Yesekeyev to discuss the implementation progress of the project in the region 

Smart city is a project that aims to improve infrastructure by implementing innovative technologies in order to create comfortable conditions for citizens. That is, it is a unified video surveillance system which will be installed at the facilities of health care, education, construction and housing and communal services in cities. It will allow us to collect digital data and optimize information management.

Akim of the region Danial Akhmetov proposed to implement a pilot project of "smart city" in Ridder.

- It is advisable to start the project from Ridder town. Because the infrastructure of this town is very complicated. If the system is successfully implemented in Ridder, then there will be no technical barriers and defects in other cities”, said Danial Akhmetov.

According to experts of Kazakhtelecom, the Smart city system in Ridder, along with monitoring social facilities, will conduct an environmental safety review. Video cameras, which will be installed in 546 multi-apartment residential buildings, 15 schools and more than 100 construction sites, will enhance the electronic control system. 10 environmental impact assessment stations are aimed at the information distribution on air pollution.

It is worth noting that a number of projects are being implemented in the region as part of the Digital Kazakhstan State Program applying digital technologies. Digital surveillance cameras have been installed and are functioning on social facilities and city streets.
