III. Projects calling for solutions

The Call aims to procure the solutions for the smart presentation of the Hangzhou Asian Games in 2022, focusing on the research on key technical subjects of 10 projects, including smart command, smart security and protection, smart security inspection, smart lifestyle, smart performance, smart venues, smart language services, smart travel, smart spectating and display of innovative technology application, in order to provide support for the successful and high-quality staging of the smart grand sports gathering. The Participants shall submit solutions by project. The projects are as follows:

Project 1 Smart Command

The smart command system is the Games-time "brain" of the Asian Games. It mainly refers to the comprehensive command system that uses artificial intelligence, big data, cloud computing, Internet of Things and other technologies, to open up the information passage, so as to achieve data linkage and interoperability in the aspects of security, transport, communications, medical services, human resources and logistic materials among government departments, Asian Games venues (Athletes Villages), Hangzhou city and Games zones. The system shall be able to display real-time and massive data in a visual and interactive way and meet the needs for optimizing the Game's resource allocation, coordinating Games-time operations and improving city support and supervision, by using independent algorithms. The main components of the system include:

—— Command and coordination system. By constructing a wired and wireless diversified communication network, this system will efficiently realize the comprehensive command and coordination of "people, vehicles, and materials" and other resources before, during and after the Games.

——Digital integrated venue operation and management system. In the Games venues and Athletes Villages, a smart management system will be built, which integrates smart facilities and smart services to realize real-time interaction, unified management and overall linkage. The system includes passenger flow monitoring, utility energy consumption monitoring and control, key areas live monitoring, and smart staff (including volunteers and co-operative partners) management, so as to achieve comprehensive, multi-dimensional management of venue infrastructure, sports competitions and events, venue staff, athletes, and spectators.

——Regional coordination and management system. By opening up the information passage between venues (Athletes Villages)in Hangzhou and in Ningbo, Wenzhou, Jinhua, Huzhou, Shaoxing, etc., a coordinated management system will be built for the integration and analysis of Games information, and the coordination between venues (Athletes Villages).

——Traffic command and coordination system. This refers to a visual smart traffic coordination and command system that provides urban road accident prevention, congestion control and rapid evacuation in the areas around the Games venues and Athletes Villages, provides real-time information of traffic operation during the Games and Games-time forecasts of the traffic changes in a timely manner, so as to achieve the goal of Games-wide information collection, command integration and full-process monitoring.

——Emergency command system. This is a unified command and coordination system that covers government departments in charge of security, transport, communications, first-aid, meteorology, etc.. This information system deals with special, sudden, emergency incidents during the Games and provides emergency services, to achieve the result of unified command, rapid response, unified emergency handling and joint action.

This smart command system combines in one the operation systems of Games operation, security synchronisation, traffic command and coordination and logistics support, to create a unified Games management system in the whole province, which provides an important guarantee for holding the Hangzhou Asian Games in a "smoothly operated, accurately scheduled, well-commanded, and safe and reliable" way.

Project 2 Smart Security and Protection

This project aims to research and develop intelligent equipment and technical means for the security of the venues and Athletes Villages and provide smart security and protection systems, equipment and solutions for the Hangzhou Asian Games.
