Greentown·Zhoushan Changzhi Island Ruxin Town is the epitome and model example of domestic smart city construction. At the end of 2019, Ruxin Smart Town boarded the podium of the China Smart City Conference and won the "2019 China Smart Park (Town)" award.
In 2018, after the bidding competition, the One4City team was appointed by Greentown Group to carry out smart top-level planning and floor design of Ruxin Township in Changzhi Island, Zhoushan. After passing a preliminary survey of the residents’ daily travel behaviour, the One4City team put forward detailed proposals for the construction of ecological and smart towns, emphasising that their construction is not just a simple technical solution. One4City considers the sustainability of its development based on the characteristics of the town. It is recommended to develop corresponding ecological smart town construction plans and technical support at different stages of development, deepening and maturing the town’s construction, and building operational management systems suitable for the characteristics of the town. The public management service platform encourages the long-term participation of the government, enterprises and residents. The One4City team made an overall positioning of the smart town of Ruxin Town, Changzhi Island, and established short-term, medium-term, and long-term development goals; it interpreted the parallel international schemes in detail in the application scheme system of transportation, community, and health care. It also focuses on exploring pilot application projects in smart towns, covering application solution solutions, value goals and measurement indicators, ecosystem design in cooperation with governments, enterprises, communities and various stakeholders, business model architecture design, application solution visualisation and technology Architecture mapping and implementation.
The smart construction of Ruxin Township is implemented step by step. The first phase of the construction focuses on "safety", "livability" and "convenience" to meet the needs of township residents in life services and effectively enhance the living experience. The first phase of construction mainly involves 3 modules and 8 service packages, with a total of 19 smart function segments. At present, the development of the Ruxin Town APP (owner side and management side) has been completed, the hardware equipment upgrade of the park and the main roads has been simultaneously promoted, and the Ruxin Town IOC platform has been built. Through the technical support of the Internet of Things, big data, cloud computing, etc., Ruxin Town Smart Construction connects and links people, facilities, and events as the "three ones". By integrating operation control centre, standardised operating systems, and user service platform, it provides "peaceful, green, livable, happy and convenient" town services, and realises digital, intelligent and refined town operation management.
“The locals all lived in this Wuling fountainhead,
They established their families and habitat here after migrating from the outside world.
The moon shone through pines on peaceful cottages,
The sun rose through clouds amid crowing of roosters and barking of dogs.
Surprised at hearing of an outside visitor, villagers hurriedly a crowd gathered,
Each eagerly invited him to their home and of their native land enquired.
At dawn, they swept alleyways clean of fallen petals and leaves,
As dusk veiled the sky, the fishing boat and woodsman again the waters followed.”
Far from the hustle and bustle, the Taohuayuan has been a symbol of Chinese people's spiritual home for thousands of years. In a fast-paced modern society, this ideal home has become a good image to appease the minds of contemporary people. The wind and snow of Taohuayuan can shield the outside noise and hustle and bustle. The Jiangxi Gao'an Taohuayuan project is to continue this beautiful wish, combining cutting-edge modern technology and heavy traditional culture to create a paradise in Chinese hearts.
The design of the project is dominated by agricultural product logistics and cultural tourism, based on the important peripheral service nodes of Nanchang City, the new urban area of Gao’an City, taking the Nanchang metropolitan area as the main development direction, and building a radiation belt in Gao’an City, connecting Nanchang and Gao’an. The small town is the "urban‘s backyard garden" of Nanchang Gao'an, and a complex industrial city paradise with cultural arts, leisure tourism and food industry with main functions.
The One4City team was responsible for the smart sector design of the project, focusing on the four functional sectors of smart transportation, smart food security, smart business, and smart care, covering smart energy saving, green travel, food safety, environmental protection, convenient shopping, medical and social therapy, design and implementation of more than ten community functions such as community security. One4City helps to introduce the latest international energy-saving and environmental protection, artificial intelligence (AI) technology solutions, providing a powerful boost for the convenient life of the town; One4City 's design scheme combines cutting-edge technology and community experience, drawing on the world's leading experience in the retail and catering industry for the enjoyment of town residents life provides many possibilities, and creates smart display areas in many places in the town, so that residents and visitors can experience the convenience and happiness brought by smart everywhere.
Manchester’s Internet of Things (IoT) Smart City project brings together the brightest minds and pioneering uses of IoT technologies to redefine ‘smart’ in the context of a living, working city.
It aims to build and deliver a smarter and more connected Manchester, creating a city that uses technology to meet the complex needs of its people.
Imagine a Manchester of endless possibilities: from new business and jobs to better healthcare and transport; safer streets; and more engaged and empowered citizens.
After all, a city is brought to life by the people that live, work and play at the heart of it. This project isn’t really about streets, buildings or buses. Nor is it just about giving cutting edge connectivity to sensors and devices. It isn’t about ‘things’ at all, it’s about people.
That’s why every aspect of Manchester’s IoT Smart City project, from transport right through to healthcare, is being driven by our team of real-world experts.
Application solutions and technical points
One4City team helps the Manchester IoT Smart City project to complete the top-level scheme design. Through in-depth multi-angle research with 20 public sectors and private companies, as many as 120 application solutions and technical requirements suitable for Manchester City have been created. These solutions span four vertical areas (transportation, energy and environment, health care, culture and art), and are optimised and designed as detailed landing smart solutions.
Open-source innovation and platform solutions
Integrating and binding the smart application solutions in the Manchester IoT Smart City project is a technical solution called "Platform in Platform". The solution unifies the application by creating a secure data path, making the intelligent collection, resolution, and use of data possible. Our team helps Cityverve's platform solution development and business evaluation, through open source innovation, using the characteristics of both a data platform and a development platform to attract talents from different industries to innovate. Our team integrates more than 30 solution providers outside the project, develops flexible and adaptable technology solutions that can adapt to the continuous development and changes of urban needs, and helps them land.

AI-enabled Crop Management System seeks to exploit existing research on potato disease identification & outbreak management in the domain of precision agriculture, agriculture digitisation & decision management support. It will harness cutting-edge technologies (i.e. IoT, mobile devices, crowd sourced data, big data analytics and cloud computing). It will build a decision support system that generates insight from remote sensing, monitoring & prediction of disease.
The initial focus will be on potato late blight disease, one of the most devastating crop diseases in China. In a typical blight pressure season crop protection chemicals cost the industry an estimated $10-20bn p.a.. Late blight has been referred to as a ‘community disease’, due to its ability to spread rapidly from field to field under the right weather conditions. Asexual spores travel easily on the wind when the weather is cool and moist, and can rapidly infect neighbouring fields. As such, understanding the symptoms of the disease and what to do when it is detected are essential to preventing an outbreak from rapidly turning into an epidemic.
