A beach city in southern Vietnam on Monday inaugurated a novel smart city administration center, which is equipped with tech applications to help local authorities and residents monitor and report urban issues.

The center is a collaborative project undertaken by military-owned tech firm Viettel and Vung Tau City, administered by Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province.

The administration center boasts a large display merged from 12 screens, broadcasting images from surveillance cameras throughout the streets of Vung Tau City.

This system allows supervisors to promptly analyze, trace, alert, and handle road violations and commotions in real-time.

Vung Tau is deploying more than 1,100 surveillance cameras, out of which Viettel integrated 50 security cameras and two for traffic rule violation tracking.

The cameras are capable of detecting plate numbers and car models, and counting moving vehicles on the roads.

The smart city center is also equipped with a temporary residence tracking system, a fire alert system, as well as a security system providing parents with real-time footage of children at school.

It can also supervise fishing activities and monitor the latest developments of the COVID-19 epidemic.

The solution package comes with a smartphone app entitled 'Vungtauioc,' available on iOS App Store and Google Play Store, which serves as a transparent communication channel between residents and local authorities.

The app receives images, videos, and verbal reports of social issues from residents before delivering officials’ responses publicly on its feed.

Users can also submit documents for public administrative procedures, or receive guidance on local tourism and leisure via the app.

'Vungtauioc' has hit 10,000 downloads and 5,000 registered users since its launch.
