IOH Collaborates with INKA Introduces IoT-Based Public Transportation Solutions


INDOSAT Ooredoo Hutchison (IOH) and PT Industri Kereta Api (INKA) Persero announced that they had signed a Memorandum of Understanding to introduce Internet-of-Things (IoT)-based public transportation solutions in Indonesia. The cooperation will focus on two projects to welcome the 2022 G20 Summit in Bali, which will be held in October this year.

The first is the Tram Mover which will be operated at Taman Mini Indonesia Indonesia (TMII) Jakarta. Second, the electric bus which is planned to be used at the G20 Summit in Bali.

IOH Chief Business Officer Bayu Hanantasena said, “We are pleased to partner with INKA in developing IoT-based public transportation solutions in Indonesia. Through this partnership, we aim to demonstrate the power of our IoT solutions capable of operating on both 4G and 5G technologies, in particular how they can unlock opportunities for a better connected future. We believe this solution will bring about a fundamental change in the transportation sector, by enabling innovations such as autonomous vehicles, smart maintenance, and a seamless and integrated transportation system.”

For the Tram Mover project at TMII, the smart train will operate automatically without a driver controlled through the Operation Control Center (OCC) system.

As for the electric bus project, IOH’s IoT solution will allow the Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform to detect the number of passengers on the bus, measure body temperature, and monitor the driver’s condition.

The technology will also enable near-real-time information on what’s happening on and around electric buses for a safer travel experience.

PT INKA (Persero) Development Director Agung Sedaju said, “To make Tram Mover operate intelligently, we need to collaborate with experts, for that we invite Indosat to work together. Meanwhile, the camera on the electric bus will later be able to detect the number of passengers and their body temperature thanks to Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison’s 5G technology. This collaboration is a new milestone because we have explored similar cooperation with Thailand and Singapore. However, they just want to sell and don’t want to collaborate.”

“Indonesia has tremendous potential with a large population and fluent technology. Through this collaboration, we hope that Indonesia can advance and match other countries,” concluded Bayu. (RO/OL-1)
