Taipei City Multi-Field Multimedia Information Station (Kiosk) Pilot Project

This project refers to the LinkNYC in New York, to collect and verify the benefits and feasibility of applying Kiosk to different field characteristics. Field types include transportation and sightseeing nodes around MRT stations, market business circles, and other crowd gathering areas, to test the multimedia information stations, providing free Wi-Fi, digital playback panels for municipal information, air-condition detection, and power bank rental services. 

Constructing smart, one-stop convenient public facilities, and promoting commercial advertising and mobile power rental income can also become a source of funding for the maintenance and operation of this public service. It is hoped that through the cooperation between the government and the industry, a more friendly network environment and friendly service experience for citizens and tourists will be provided to help evaluate the application of Kiosk to the overall expansion of the possibility.

This time, the pilot vendors and two companies have set up Kiosk machines in a composite field and verified the feasibility of multiple business operation models through commercial advertisements and mobile power leases. It is expected that the service will be launched in mid-November 2020 and a 12-month trial demonstration will be officially launched.
