Ericsson ConsumerLab Report: Digital Technologies to Augment Singapore’s Transportation Infrastructure

gbafNews28

  • 43 percent of Savvy Commuters feel that they receive plenty of mental space when commuting
  • 40% of Singaporeans feel that their city infrastructure is becoming more strained every year
  • Technology expected to play an instrumental role in enhancing commuter experience

SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 26 November 2020 – Ericsson‘s latest ConsumerLab report explores commuter behavior both before and during the COVID-19 crisis, reflecting consumers’ opinions and habits that could be used to offer a more satisfactory commuting experience in the increasingly digital and connected world of tomorrow.

 

Commuting in Singapore has been affected by the COVID-19 crisis with measures during this unprecedented time influencing changes in consumer mobility patterns and future expectations. Consumers are demanding more from their devices, mobile connectivity, and vehicles during their daily commute to wrap up their work or partake in social and recreational activities while commuting. The Augmenting the Daily Commute report surveyed 16,000 commuters in 16 cities, including 1,000 from Singapore who used different transport modes, including ride and car sharing services.

 

Mental space for a positive commuting experience

The report explores how the most satisfied commuters — a group Ericsson has named “Savvy Commuters” — see their commute as more than just time spent moving from one point to another. Savvy Commuters actively create positive conditions for their trips, using it to free up time for the rest of the day and turning it into an experience worth having.

 

A crucial criterion for a positive experience is the feeling of having enough physical and mental space. Physical space is dependent on the transport mode but mental space can be recreated through digital engagement. In Singapore, 43 percent of Savvy Commuters feel that they receive plenty of mental space during their commute, an additional 42 percent shared that they have sufficient personal space when commuting. This group immerse themselves in different digital experiences to create a sense of space, with 54 percent of them relying on their smartphones and 46 percent using headphones to achieve this purpose.

 

Commuters are concerned about the city’s mobility infrastructure

Mass transportation remains the most common form of transportation mode by Singaporeans (56 percent), with 37 percent doing so with their personal cars. Key motivations cited for using the current mode of transport are its convenience (58 percent), cost (45 percent) and time efficiency (46 percent). When it comes to time spent on commuting, majority of Singaporeans spend less than 90 minutes commuting a day (64 percent), while 36 percent spend 90 minutes and more. Unsurprisingly, reducing time spent on commuting is a key priority for most respondents (over 70 percent) compared to having control of their arrival time with a longer commute (almost 30 percent).   

 

Despite being one of the few cities in the study with greatest use of mass transport modes, more than 60 percent of respondents in Singapore have a negative perception of the city’s transportation system. 39 percent of respondents feel the growing strain in the city’s mobility infrastructure,  while 25 percent believe that it is reaching a saturation point and is working over the intended capacity.

 

Safety tops the list of conceptual mobility services

Testing and analyzing 16 mobility concepts across three categories of “Safety and Assistance”, “Entertainment”, and “Convenience”, Ericsson found that consumers are most interested in services and features that enhance safety and reduce stress in demanding situations. Majority of respondents show high interest in enhanced assisted driving features supported by connectivity, where information is collected from vehicles and sensors regarding hazards beyond the horizon.

 

Half of the respondents from Singapore are highly interested in safety features that send alerts when a driver is not paying attention to a danger ahead, alerting both the driver and other road users. This is backed by their willingness to pay a premium for safety services and features such as distracted driver detection (35 percent) and see through cars powered by 5G (32 percent).

 

When it comes to entertainment and convenience, 37 percent voiced high interest for augmented reality windows on trains and buses. Nearly one third look forward to seeing some form of in-seat Augmented Reality (AR) passenger entertainment, while 34 percent have stated their preference for mood personalization experiences. 39 percent of respondents are also highly interested in continual in-vehicle connectivity that offers alternative route suggestions from the vehicle to avoid call drops or lags along the way to boost their productivity.

 

“5G technology will play an instrumental role in delivering an enhanced commuter experience, alongside the safety, efficiency and sustainability of urban transportation in the years to come. Through our continuous investments, partnerships and innovation, we aim to deliver the best connectivity experience for commuters across the different modes of transportation,” said Martin Wiktorin, Head of Ericsson Singapore, Brunei and Philippines “We can take inspiration by understanding what consumers value during their daily commute and drive positive changes to deliver satisfaction and enhance the commuting experience as more people head back to work.”

 

The report also includes highlights around commuter expectations on the future of mobility in Singapore such as:

  • 61 percent believe that shared mobility services will be used more than today in 5 years’ time, with the main reason being to reduce congestion.
  • Among the sixteen conceptual mobility services, most Singaporeans expect entertainment services to take the longest to enter the market, with augmented reality maps expected to roll out only in the next 4.5 years.
  • Globally, 60 percent respondents believe autonomous vehicles will completely revolutionize the commuting experience within the next 10 years. This figure rises to 72 percent in Singapore with consumers indicating that new automotive companies will lead the autonomous vehicle revolution. Interestingly, Singapore consumers (38 percent) are revealed to rely much more heavily on government authorities to lead the deployment of autonomous driving compared to other countries in Asia Pacific, with only 25 percent of the region expecting government authorities to do so.

 

ABOUT THE STUDY:

This study is representative of the opinions of 130 million smartphone users globally. The data were gathered through online interviews with 16,000 people between ages 15 – 69 years-old from Bangkok, Berlin, Delhi, Dubai, Jakarta, London, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, São Paulo, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Stockholm, Sydney and Tokyo. Of which 1,000 users are based in Singapore. In addition to the consumer interviews, expert interviews were conducted with senior executives from telecom operators, mobility service providers and vehicle manufacturers between March and April 2020 to gain a perspective on industry sentiments around the future of mobility for consumers.

DHL sends healthcare supplies for World Health Organization to the Pacific Islands

gbafNews28

  • Tourism-dependent islands badly impacted by more than 90% decline in passenger flights
  • Supplementary COVID-19 supplies moved through Singapore and Fiji to reach the Pacific islands

SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 26 November 2020 – The far flung islands in the Pacific have not been spared the brunt of COVID-19. The World Health Organization has been working tirelessly to ensure much-needed supplies and healthcare equipment reach the shores of these islands. While the number of cases has been relatively small, many of these countries, which are heavily dependent on tourism, have been impacted by the dramatic cuts in passenger flights, resulting in a logistical challenge to send in basic supplies on a regular basis.

This week, the World Health Organization coordinated its latest cargo donation through DHL Global Forwarding (“DHL”), the freight specialist of Deutsche Post DHL Group, to support the islands’ fight against COVID-19. The shipments, worth over EUR 650,000 contained medical devices such as oxygen concentrator sets, patient monitors and pulse oximeters, were airfreighted from Singapore to Fiji, where they will be dispatched to eight islands in the Pacific. The Pacific Islands, which had previously managed to avoid large outbreaks, experienced a recent spike in COVID-19 infections that doubled its total number of cases.

 

Due to the shortage of air capacity with passenger flights reduced by more than 90%, the freight had to be broken down into three tranches, sent some two weeks apart. DHL Global Forwarding organized the first shipment from Singapore to Fiji on 22 October, and will be stored till the last shipment arrives on 19 November. From Fiji, special flights or shipping lines were then organized into eight markets, Cook Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tuvalu and Tonga, to ensure they reached their destination.

 

“Ensuring that the Pacific Island countries have access to the necessary medical equipment and supplies to prepare for and respond to COVID-19 is a priority for the World Health Organization. But reaching such remote places, especially when so many airports are closed, is a huge logistical challenge. WHO is happy to be working with our partners like DHL to be able to make this happen.” said Dr Takeshi Kasai, WHO Regional Director for the Western Pacific.

 

The medical devices, which will be sent to hospitals and other healthcare institutions, will aid local medical professionals in treating COVID-19 patients.

 

“Whilst the Pacific Islands’ geographic distance from densely populated countries had helped them avert major outbreaks during the pandemic, it has equally worked against them in acquiring much-needed supplies due to the scarcity of air freight capacity. As one of the few global logistics players in the Islands and one with a geographic footprint as wide as ours, we are glad to be able to play a part in delivering the medical equipment and living up to our purpose of ‘Connecting People, Improving Lives,” said Kelvin Leung, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding Asia Pacific.

 

More than ever before, the criticality of logistics networks have been demonstrated in the battle to get much needed supplies to countries that need it the most. Since the start of the year, DHL Global Forwarding tapped on its network of life science and healthcare facilities, temperature-controlled solutions and customs clearance expertise to fly more than 1.3 million COVID-19 test kits from South Korea to Brazil, Ecuador, India, Lithuania, Poland, Russia and Saudi Arabia. The freight forwarder also launched a dedicated 100-ton weekly air freight service for organizations and governments shipping health and medical-related items and other goods from China to Middle East and Africa.

Vaccine logistics for Covid-19 will pose challenges along the supply chain that must be jointly addressed by governments, NGOs, pharmaceutical companies, and logistics players urgently.
