Singapore's IoT data dump

Singapore's internet of things will detect visits to the bathroom.

The island state's new "Smart Nation" project will deploy sensors everywhere for yet undescribed applications that will assist law enforcement, citizen health, cleanliness, and various efficiency matrices. The toilet-monitoring effort will be focussed on the emissions of the elderly, the better to manage their health.

The internet-of-things-on-steroids program is generally accepted by the population which broadly favours the ruling People's Action Party that has held power for 57 years. Singapore enjoys prosperity at levels not enjoyed in comparable or neighbouring states, but restricts freedom of speech and the media. ®
