The concept of smart and integrated technology is including all spheres of our techy lifestyle. The home appliances are smart, the cameras are smart and the phones are smarter yet. Recently the smart concept invaded the townships and mini-cities in the national capital region as well. A leading developer is building the first Smart City, NCR. The concept includes high end technology to solve, apprehend, and prevent the problems commonly being faced in a city.
The concept is hi-tech and gives us a feel of a science fiction movie. The theories yet imagined in futuristic movies, have begun to realize and are in their first phase. It is fascinating to know that all our electric & water supplies, home security, and traffic density would be monitored and controlled by sensors. This is being taken as the first advancement towards the ideal, all mechanized future. The auto mode in a camera or even an airplane has seamlessly integrated into our lives. No one would be surprised by a car being driven on autopilot. But an entire city doing that is a notion about which people are a little skeptical. Smart City, NCR that is yet to be realized and inhibited by people is promising this revolutionary idea in India.
The global concept of sensor-reliant automated infrastructural systems is to be introduced with the help of IBM Smart city, India. It is the interactive software that digitizes the town planning and also manages its day to day operations, automatically. That being realized, the buildings will switch on the lights for us, smart devices would prompt us about the best parking space available, the water supply would switch on/off automatically, and much more. The city plans to make use of sensitive transducers and sensors that would sense the various stimuli of the city’s day to day information. This information would be integrated in a central control network that would control the running of these operations and would send out apt signals to the users. The information from one system could also be used to modify the status of another system as and when required.
On a simpler note, you can get a notification as to when your drain pipe is going to clog, what is the pollution level near your house, when the right time to drive around is and which route to take. Funny as it may sound, but this has been realized by the revolutionary IBM Smart City, India.
This revolutionary technology is supposed to solve the problems that have been plaguing our anciently planned metros. This would mean that no water clogging in Mumbai, as a prior signal will be sent out when it’s likely to occur. No jams in Delhi as the alternative route would already be suggested to spread-out the traffic, efficiently.
Hence, it would be interesting to see the functional and successful form of a city like that in India.
