About NEA-ESG Joint Innovation Call on Cleaning, Waste Management and Monitoring of Environmental Process Parameters
The National Environment Agency (NEA) and Enterprise Singapore (ESG) have jointly launched an Innovation Call under the Government – Partnership Capability Transformation (Gov-PACT) initiative, to encourage greater use of technology and automation to raise productivity for cleaning, waste management and monitoring of environmental process parameters. The innovation call also seeks to address operational challenges in the industry, as well as to build up the capability and skillsets of workers.
Innovation Call: [C] To Develop an Autonomous Outdoor Conservancy Cleaning Machine at Turfed and Non-Turfed Areas
Litters and leaves in park and planter boxes have to be cleaned regularly by conservancy service providers at Mandai Park to maintain a positive guest experience, minimise mosquito breeding and reduce fire hazards. Currently, two cleaners are deployed in the park on 8-hour shifts, who focus on clearing of litters and leaves in planter boxes.
As this cleaning work is currently done manually, it is also time consuming. As such, there is a need for an assistive solution to automate the outdoor conservancy cleaning for turfed and non-turfed areas.
The proposed solution should meet the following requirements:

The call is targeted at Singapore registered SMEs / start-ups. Foreign companies are invited to submit proposals. However, to qualify for Government's funding, foreign technology providers should work with Singapore registered SMEs / start-ups.
