INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Taiwan offers a smart digital integration-based transportation system to industrial markets in Indonesia in the form of exploratory cooperation.
'Our hands are always open to cooperate with the Indonesian government. We are ready to develop with Indonesia in realizing Smart City so we can make it easier for the government to achieve that, "said Tony Lin, Deputy Executive Director of Strategy, Trade and Marketing of Taiwan (TAITRA).

The application of technology in transportation is a key factor in overcoming transportation problems in Indonesia today. Seeing the opportunity, through Taiwan Expo 2018 event, Taiwan Excellence presents smart transportation solutions by holding a seminar titled Taiwan Excellence in Smart Transportation.

The integration of these technologies works well on hardware and software, such as traffic control, information management and electronic communications that keep pace with technological developments of developed countries in the world.

If using ETC, riders do not need to do tapping on the toll booth to make transactions.
"This system allows motorists to pass through toll booths without having to tap like e-Toll like now. This is a solution to overcome the congestion that happened at the toll booth.
