PRIMEFLEX for Hadoop and HPC creates Urban Computing Platform for A*STAR in Singapore

"The purpose of the CoE is to solve local urban challenges; bringing together expertise across three organizations to develop solutions that can be applied globally. Fujitsu is playing a key role in the joint research and commercialization of the outcome"

Deputy Executive Director of the Science and Engineering Research Council, A*STAR

The Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) is one of the government agencies that fosters world-class scientific research and talent to drive economic growth and transform Singapore into a vibrant knowledge-based and innovation-driven economy. As an agency for the Ministry of Trade and Industry in Singapore, it focuses on leveraging cutting-edge technological capabilities to solve social issues, such as rapid urbanization, and boost economic performance. Singapore is building the World’s first Smart Nation by harnessing technology to the fullest with the aim of improving the lives of citizens, creating more opportunities, and building stronger communities. A*STAR is playing a key role in Singapore’s Smart Nation journey.

The challenge

Fujitsu, A*STAR and SMU created a CoE to discuss how they could contribute to solving urbanization issues, in particular Dynamic Mobility Management, which examines and improves the dynamics of commuter traffic in urban spaces, as well as managing crowds under extreme conditions; and Maritime and Port Optimization, which looks at the design of integrated logistics of shipments.

The solution

The CoE has built an Urban Computing Platform equipped to handle the complex analytics, using a combination of PRIMERGY servers and PRIMEFLEX for Hadoop.

The benefit

  • Generates solutions for performance improvement that can be translated back into reality by the government or business organizations
  • Maritime Port Optimization solution helps vessels access quicker routes, thus improving vessel turnaround time
  • Helps optimize port operations in cargo flow and handling, positioning the port of Singapore as a world leading hub
