Congratulations to gridComm and G Element for winning the first prize at the Smart City Innovation Challenge (Vietnam)
The Smart City Innovation Challenge is an initiative by the Mekong Business Initiative, a joint venture of the Asian Development Bank and the Government of Australia, to source deployable solutions to Vietnam’s urban challenges from global innovators. This is open to companies of all sizes looking to gain access to the Vietnamese market.
Mr. Mike Holt, CEO of gridComm, giving the smart city solution presentation
As one of the 15 shortlisted companies selected and invited to showcase in Vietnam, gridComm presented a smart city solution in collaboration with G Element, in front of the Steering Committee for Smart Cities, various local authorities of cities such as Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang and Hoi An (Quang Nam) and extended audience of industry leaders, technologists and investors within the region.
The integrated gridComm and G Element smart city solution uses sensors to monitor and control street lights and traffic lights. The system allows operators to control the street light brightness, and be notified when the street lights and traffic lights malfunctioned, thus reducing power/energy usage and improving traffic management. The system can also be integrated with CCTVs installed around the city to give a city wide surveillance, improving public security.
Once again, congratulations to gridComm and G Element for winning the Smart City Innovation Challenge (Vietnam)!

BuildTech Asia 2017 – 24 – 26 October 2017, Singapore Expo Hall 3
G Element and Aptiv8 in partnership at the BuildTech Asia 2017
G Element would like to thank all those who took their precious time to join us at the BuildTech Asia 2017 held at Singapore Expo Hall 3, Booth G23, 24 – 26 October 2017. Together with Aptiv8,
G Element has presented a holistic solution for buildings and construction owners.
NUCLEUS integration with FaceID at the BuildTech Asia 2017
By integrating with FaceID’s facial scanner (distributed by Aptiv8), NUCLEUS is able to track the entry of all construction workers at site. This is extremely useful for keeping track of the workers doing underground works e.g. tunneling, where workers have to scan their face upon entering the tunnel, and scan again to exit the tunnel. In times of emergency, e.g. tunnel fire, the command center will be able to accurately know how many workers are still trapped underground, and the identities of those who are trapped.
Mr. Lawrence giving a talk on NUCLEUS at BuildTech Asia 2017
During the exhibition, G Element’s Business and Development Manager Mr. Lawrence also gave a talk on how NUCLEUS can be applied to the management of construction site. Environmental information such as temperature, dust, soil and noise information at the construction site can easily be monitored in real time on NUCLEUS, and on-demand CCTV footage gives insight to real-time situation around the construction site. Workers attendance can be easily recorded and traced, while security guards’ locations can be tracked in real-time so that they can render immediate assistance when incidents occur. Apart from using NUCLEUS during the construction period, NUCLEUS’s eco-system can also be passed on to building owners or facility management users after the construction, maximizing the initial investment on the system.
