Regional: Using Frontier Technology and Big Data Analytics for Smart Infrastructure Facility Planning and Monitoring

Sovereign (Public) Project | 54114-001 Status: Proposed

The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will identify, demonstrate, and evaluate how to use high-level technologies to effectively plan high-quality infrastructure investments, especially for transport infrastructure, to reduce construction and maintenance costs, and measure economic impacts. The usefulness of big data and satellite imagery, in the face of coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, has been demonstrated, visualizing movements of people and goods and helping government to design response activities. Lessons learned from the TA will be shared and discussed with developing member countries (DMCs) and Asian Development Bank (ADB) operational departments for planned or future ADB projects and government policies in developing Asia, including upper-middle income countries (UMICs).

Description The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will identify, demonstrate, and evaluate how to use high-level technologies to effectively plan high-quality infrastructure investments, especially for transport infrastructure, to reduce construction and maintenance costs, and measure economic impacts. The usefulness of big data and satellite imagery, in the face of coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, has been demonstrated, visualizing movements of people and goods and helping government to design response activities. Lessons learned from the TA will be shared and discussed with developing member countries (DMCs) and Asian Development Bank (ADB) operational departments for planned or future ADB projects and government policies in developing Asia, including upper-middle income countries (UMICs).
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The recent advances in high-level technology offer opportunities to plan, construct, and maintain high-quality infrastructure. Spatial information, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and Internet of things could be used for designing, constructing, maintaining, and monitoring high-quality infrastructure projects. DMC governments and international development agencies, however, have been struggling to find effective ways to use high-level technologies. Without proper planning and consideration of options available, valuable opportunities could be missed. The value of missed opportunities could be invaluable. Thus, there is a strong and urgent need to conduct pilot case studies involving the effective use of high-level technologies to draw policy recommendations.
Impact Physical and financial sustainability of transportation infrastructure improved
Outcome Transportation infrastructure monitoring and maintenance systems in ADB DMCs improved, and operational and maintenance costs reduced
Outputs

Pre-feasibility study of using innovative technologies and data sources for enhanced monitoring of infrastructure quality conducted

Research studies on urban infrastructure in developing Asia conducted and capacity building implemented

Case studies on impacts of high-quality infrastructure conducted and disseminated

Business Opportunities
Consulting Services ADB will engage the consultants following the ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and its associated project administration instructions and/or staff instructions. The TA requires up to 50 person months of international and up to 100 person months of national consultant inputs.
Procurement The TA requires both macro and micro data. The data sets will be procured from government agencies, private data providers, and other research institutes. Equipment such as laptop computers, handheld devices, sensors and other infrastructure monitoring equipment and statistical software may also be procured for the TA where needed. Procurement of data, equipment, and software will be in accordance with ADB's Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and the associated Staff Instructions. For the equipment, a certificate of equipment turnover or disposal will be submitted at the end of TA implementation.

Project Data Sheets (PDS) contain summary information on the project or program. Because the PDS is a work in progress, some information may not be included in its initial version but will be added as it becomes available. Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.

The Access to Information Policy (AIP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
