Singapore operator StarHub and the National University of Singapore (NUS), in cooperation with ComfortDelGro Bus and Veniam, the company that delivers the Internet of Moving Things, have deployed a mesh network of connected vehicles pilot on NUS Kent Ridge campus. The mesh platform leverages vehicles as mobile Wi-Fi access points that connect to one another and to fixed points in buildings throughout the NUS campus.
This approach is designed to extend overall Wi-Fi network coverage and enable a myriad of IoT devices to be connected. The wireless mesh access points are powered by a combination of Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) connected vehicle technology, 4G and Wi-Fi, providing seamless handovers and continuous connectivity.
With this deployment, NUS staff and students can access seamless Wi-Fi while travelling on all NUS campus shuttle buses. It also allows commercial partners to leverage the anonymised data generated from this network to analyse and address urban challenges facing Singapore logistics and transportation companies today.
