HDB plans and develops Singapore's public housing by building homes and transforming towns to create a quality living environment for all. We provide various commercial, recreational, and social amenities in our towns for our residents’ convenience. HDB has housed an entire nation – today, more than 1 million flats have been completed in 23 towns and 3 estates across the island.
The Smart Hub is a key component of the HDB Smart Urban Habitat and Smart Town Framework to support our Smart Nation initiative. It is a central data repository for the collection and integration of multiple sources of data and information, including real-time data collected from sensors deployed in HDB towns. The Smart Hub will enable HDB to conduct Big Data analytics to help Town Councils to enhance estate maintenance and management, optimise municipal services and its related costs, support HDB’s planning and design processes, and provide useful insights to drive HDB’s sustainability and community development efforts. Smart systems will ensure critical systems (such as lifts, pumps, and lighting) function reliably to serve the needs of the residents.
