Call for innovation

Solutions for Smart Cities: Smart Safety/Security



The rapid development of ICT will have a profound impact on the way we live and work.

Singapore is building the World's first Smart Nation by harnessing technology to the fullest with the aim of improving the lives of citizens, creating more opportunities, and building stronger communities.


Four leading French corporates operating in Singapore are joining forces to boost that transition and with this joint call for innovations they search solutions for the future cities.


If you have a solution for Smart Safety/Security, join the transition and boost your business to new markets.


Smart cities mean people and businesses are empowered through increased access to data, more participatory through the contribution of innovative ideas and solutions and that way more effective services that utilise technology to better serve citizens’ needs.
With this joint call, four industry leaders are looking for solutions to their own focus areas.
In this subtopic, Thales is looking at New Technologies, Innovative Solutions and New Services that will enhance the Safety and Security of the city dwellers in Singapore and all around the world. With the presence and quality of network coverage expanding worldwide and the number of connected sensors skyrocketing, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data phenomena have become topics of huge interest to improve the presence of the safety and security officers on the field, their action capabilities as well as their understanding of the situation.
With this call for innovation, you will have the possibility to exchange with our experts in order to assess together the impact of your solutions for tomorrow’s Safety and Security.

What we are looking for

We are looking at solutions that will help the future safety and security systems to take advantage of the multiple possibilities offered by the explosion of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data phenomena.
Here are some examples of topics we are interested in:
  • New types of wearable sensors that can be carried by the field operators and agents to enhance their sensing capabilities as well as the feedback they can provide to the command & control centre
  • New types of embedded sensors to enhance the sensing capabilities of the fleet of various vehicles used by the agencies in charge of the safety and security of the citizens as well as the feedback they can provide to the command & control centre
  • New types of wearable devices that can be carried by the field operators and agents to improve their situation awareness and communication capabilities
  • New algorithmic solutions for the merging and sense making of the information coming from the various sensors available on the field
  • New algorithmic solutions for the detection of sensors malfunctioning and/or under hacker’s attack
  • New visualization concepts to improve the situation awareness of the safety and security operators, whether on the field or in the command & control centre
  • New solutions to handle and process the big amount of data produced
  • Etc.

​Relevant proposal should

  • Support the transition towards Smart Cities and especially Smart Safety/Security
  • Offer new ways of operation, business models or technologies for the industry
  • Have a positive impact on the safety and security of the city dwellers
  • Present a competitive advantage compared to already existing solutions
  • Be on Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) 3 to 9. Read more about the TRL scale here.

​What we are not interested in

  • Solutions that are not in the Safety and Security scope
  • Solutions that are not supported by accurate and robust data or evidences
  • Solutions that do not bring novelty or improvement compared to competitors

Possible forms of collaboration

Depending on the level of maturity of the solutions, several forms of collaboration may be considered, including:
  • A specific research and/or co-development agreement in order to work together to meet our industrial needs and push further the collaboration
  • Incorporating the solution in a tender
  • Testing the solution in a pilot or deployable prototype.
Our ultimate goal is to establish a win-win collaboration and help both parties to create value in solving actual issues.
