New campus a 'base of top research centres'


The pink and blue dots for now simulate the movement of five million Singaporeans on a virtual map.

But it may pave the way for the Land Transport Authority to tweak the transport network to ease the traffic and human flow across the island in the years to come.

This project is made possible by a collaboration between scientists from Singapore and Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Centre for Global Environmental Sustainability.

Their joint efforts, under the Future Cities Laboratory, were the result of the Campus for Research Excellence and Technological Enterprise (Create), first announced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in 2006.
