They work in the community, either within their own home or in a common dedicated work space. The Housing community is designed not only cater for current generation of low skilled and semi-skilled workforce, but also for future generations so that they do not look for change of occupation which is common in low and semi-skilled occupation based communities. For this purpose, this housing community implements smart technology wherever applicable.
The ‘smart city’ concept is often discussed and promoted by different governments throughout the world in recent years. Artificial intelligence is recognized for its role in providing services in large number efficiently and cost effective manner. This housing community implements some of the technological interventions of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and Internet of Things (IOT) in building design, economic base and management to keep pace with the rest of the city’s adaptation of ICT and IOT. As the technological interventions are for improving the operations of any system, they can be used in implementing the sustainable practices. Thus, this housing community is designed for sustainability with regards to water conservation, energy efficiency, and waste disposal and use ICT and IOT wherever feasible.
