Singapore seeks technology to improve productivity in cleaning and refuse collection
Singapore's National Environment Agency and the Ministry of Transport jointly issued on Monday a Request for Information for the design and development of self-driving multi-purpose utility vehicles (MPUVs) for street cleaning and refuse collection in public spaces.
"Through this RFI, we hope to seek information from the industry, institutes of higher learning and research institutes on how we could leverage new technology to improve the productivity of public cleaning," they said.
"The adoption of new technology is in line with the Committee of Autonomous Road Transport for Singapore's vision of deploying self-driving technology in Singapore, and essential to achieving more sustainable public cleaning and waste collection services.
"In the longer term, boosting the productivity levels in the delivery of public services will bring about cost and time savings and better deployment of manpower resources.
"The information gathered through this RFI may, at the option of the NEA and MOT, be used to facilitate preparations for subsequent procurement for trials and demonstrations.
Interested parties can access the RFI from GeBiz. The closing date for submission is 28th December 2016.
