November 28, 2019, Jakarta – PT Lippo Karawaci Tbk ("LPKR") and Japan-based SoftBank Corp. ("SoftBank"), today, announced a strategic alliance to cooperate in the development and dissemination of “Artificial Intelligence” (AI) and "Internet of Things" (IoT) powered solutions in the real estate and mobility ecosystems in Indonesia. Lippo Village in Karawaci is the priority location for this project with plans to develop “Lippo Village as central hub of technology application & research in South East Asia”.
A signing ceremony was held at the Aryaduta Hotel in Jakarta on November 28, 2019 between Lippo Karawaci’s CEO John Riady and SoftBank’s Vice President and Head of Global Business Strategy Hidebumi Kitahara. Following the signing, John Riady said, "We are excited to move forward and collaborate with SoftBank to develop AI and IoT-based innovative solutions for our customers across the largest integrated real estate and healthcare company in Indonesia. Within our township, we intend to implement IoT technology through Smart Cluster Management and Smart Traffic Management in Lippo Village."
Hidebumi Kitahara added, “We are very pleased that we could launch this AI and IoT initiative together with Lippo Karawaci to make Lippo Village even more comfortable for residents and tenants. SoftBank will utilize its technology deployment insights to introduce advanced technologies to shopping malls and other commercial facilities, hospitals, and the entire Lippo Village area. Through this, we aim to develop Lippo Village as a Smart City model case in South East Asia."
Smart Cluster Management utilizes advanced camera technology for facial recognition of occupants in vehicles and also has the ability to read motor vehicle license plate numbers of township residents and identify unknown visitors.
Smart Traffic Management itself, through smart CCTV mode, provides the ability to count the number of vehicles that enter into an area, while at the same time is able to identify and differentiate between vehicle types including motorcycles, cars, buses and trucks. Implementation of this technology will drive improved traffic management and allow for improved and more seamless traffic flow at specific times throughout the day.
Furthermore, the cooperation between LPKR and SoftBank will bring a new analytics platform powered by AI and Big Data that will dramatically improve customer experiences. This platform will be expanded to the mall segment, combining the largest retail mall owner and operator with the innovative technology applications that SoftBank provides via its IoT technology. This cooperation will provide customers with a cutting-edge experience that links their user behavior with special offers and rewards across Lippo’s expansive 51 mall network. In addition to improving the customer’s experience, this technology allows the mall and its stores to offer customer-centric offers that provide a unique and “smart” shopping experience. In addition, this cooperation will include Siloam Hospitals in the application of smart healthcare.
