The 31-story JTC Summit smart office building in Singapore incorporates a network of approximately 60,000 sensors to collect data from various building systems.

It uses the Open Digital Platform created by the Singapore government's development arm, GovTech, to merge various technologies, including smart energy, building management, and robot delivery services, into a single platform.

The structure’s owners can view data virtually via the building's digital twin to make decisions regarding energy use, remotely unlocking entry gates, and identifying escalator malfunctions, among other things, in real time.

Additionally, the building is equipped with robots that can deliver packages, identify maintenance issues, and perform security patrols of its halls.
