Jakarta’s Flood Control System has owned its first trophies. The innovation was selected as a winner of the ITU WSIS Prizes 2022 in the e-Science category and in the IDC Smart City Asia Pacific Awards 2022 for the Public Safety category. For years, Jakarta has been hit by floods, but so far, the flood control system, such as monitoring river flow and level, is still based on manual human observations. Thus, the monitoring is limited, and the coordination takes a long time. With increasingly rapid technological developments, technology can now be applied to monitor and deal with floods in Jakarta. This latest flood control system comes with the sophistication of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). This system was developed by Jakarta Smart City in collaboration with the Jakarta Water Resource Service (DSDA) to optimize flood risk management in Jakarta.
