Ashdod, IL is preparing
As two small countries surrounded by hostile neighbors, Singapore and Israel have long maintained a common zeal for technology solutions and close military and economic ties.
A new effort will see that cooperation extend to the realm of AVs. Ashdod, Israel’s 6th largest city, has been a center for Israel’s smart city ambitions since 2014. That’s where ST Engineering, a Singaporean smart cities firm, is set to deploy a self-driving bus in 2019. Straits Times reports that ST Engineering will also develop the city’s intelligent fleet management system in addition to a new research and development center.
