SEOUL -- LG CNS, the information technology wing of South Korea's LG Group, will design the smart service concept of Indonesia's new capital city, Nusantara, by incorporating digital transformation technologies such as artificial intelligence, cloud, and big data.
Under a memorandum of understanding signed during the B20 summit in Bali on November 14, LG CNS said it would participate in designing a smart service concept. A cabinet-level agency tasked with managing and governing Nusantara is in charge of basic design such as land use planning, traffic signal systems, and housing construction.
LG CNS has conducted consulting to introduce Nusantara's intelligent transportation system and electric vehicle-oriented public transportation system. Nusantara, located on the east coast of the island of Borneo, has benchmarked a smart city in South Korea's central city of Sejong.
LG CNS has been selected for a state project to digitally transform a government complex in Sejong and establish an integrated control system using digital twin, a private 5G network, big data and artificial intelligence. Digital Twin technology enables the creation of virtual clones of real-life objects and environments. The technology is used to test dangerous equipment or simulate disastrous situations without causing catastrophic damage to the real world.
LG CNS said its participation in Indonesia would be the first case of participating a super-large smart city. "Based on our digital transformation technology and smart city business capabilities, we will make a case of exporting super-large smart city business models and leap forward as a global smart city leader," LG CNS CEO Kim Young-shub said in a statement on November 15.
LG CNS will also work with Indonesian partners to push for a smart city pilot project in the Sanur area in Bali.
