The value of the IoT is derived from the wide range of its applications. Its potential is furthermore developed when these applications are utilized to improve our communities, and to the benefit of the society as a whole.
To that end, the Taipei Computer Association, together with Taiwanese ICT leaders IBM Taiwan, Tatung Company, Chunghwa Telecom, Asus Cloud, Advantech, the Information Technology Research Institute (ITRI), and the Institute for Information Industry (III) have established the Taiwan Smart City Solution Alliance (TSSA) in early 2014. We, the TCA, aim to bring together domestic and international groups and individuals who share the vision on driving the development of the IoT and smart cities.
The Alliance further developed this website underlining the concept and idea that "smart cities are crucial to being the field for applying the IoT," and that "the IoT is a vital foundation to the realization of intelligent communities." It showcases IoT related products and services, and helps to relay various messages from our alliance members and associated companies. At the same time, the website compiles smart city related experiences and information, as well as providing access to the international event "Smart City Summit & Expo" in Taipei in order to facilitate the exchange of information on the IoT and the growth of smart cities.
