State-owned toll operator PT Jasa Marga Tbk has begun the development of an internet of things (IoT) laboratory in the company’s former Jakarta-Tangerang branch office in Jakarta as part of the company’s preparation to enter the Industry 4.0 era.

Jasa Marga’s director for human capital and transformation, Alex Denni, said in Jakarta on Saturday that the laboratory would become the center of research and technology development to create new innovations that can provide more benefits for toll road users.

The company must be ready to face the technological transformation in order to be able to survive in the digital era, he said, adding that the IoT Lab would create the latest technologies that can support Jasa Marga's performance in providing the best services for its users.

In addition to improving services for toll road users, the development of the digital technology within the IoT laboratory is also intended to improve the traffic monitoring system and social media comment center, Alex said.

Jasa Marga, the country’s largest toll road operator, plans to operate 245 kilometers of new toll roads in Java, Sumatra, Kalimantan and Sulawesi this year.

The new toll roads include the Cengkareng-Kunciran (14.2 km), Kunciran-Serpong (11.2 km) and Serpong-Cinere (10.14 km), as well as the Jakarta-Cikampek II elevated toll road (36.4 km), the Pandaan-Malang road (38.49 km) and the Gempol-Pandaan (1.6 km). (hen)
