Such hybrid energy could be transmitted through micro and mini grids in the residential zones of smart cities and DMICDC was weighing those options, he added.

4G LTE will be the fastest technology to be deployed in India: Nokia's Milivoj Vela
Quote:
The three key components of 5G technology are ultra broadband, massive connectivity and latency. The first movers in this space are the ones that need high speed, overcoming the limitations of current infrastructure, which means bringing over 1 Gigabyte into a house without a cable. The initial adopters of the 5G technology are going to be transport or automobile and logistics industries, along with the smart society. Smart society is an ecosystem that consists of people and processes.

Smart grids and healthcare will be other sectors to leverage the 5G technology. Besides, drones are one of the areas which can bank on 5G technology. Drones can be used, backed by 5G, for controlling the traffic in congested cities, and for safe city purposes.

California dreamin': Vizag wants to model itself on San Francisco
Quote:
AMERICAN ROLE

A consortium of three US-based firms — AECOM, KPMG and IBM — was given the task of developing the master plan. And, of preparing the detailed project reports for at least six areas — disaster management, water supply, sanitation, sewage treatment, safety & security and a non-motorised transport system.

US consul-general Michael Mullins says several American companies will be taking part in implementing the projects, once the master plan is ready. In fact, many firms from the US have already opened offices in Visakhapatnam, also having entered into collaboration with local entities to provide the services. On March 11, officials from the district administration, GVMC, Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority and the city police held a meeting with the consortium of consultants to broadly discuss the road map. It was decided to prepare the first phase of the master plan in five months and the entire plan by July 2017. This project will then be implemented over an area of 6,000 acres, requiring much bigger investments.

More than ‘AMRUT’, Indian Cities Need Nature-Based Solutions to Revive Themselves
Quote:
Desertification is not a self-explanatory term: it does not refer to the advance of deserts. The UN defines it as “the persistent degradation of dryland ecosystems by human activities – including unsustainable farming, mining, overgrazing and clear-cutting of land – and by climate change.” This year’s theme is ‘Inclusive cooperation for achieving Land Degradation Neutrality’.
Quote:
Unfortunately, the policy and planning community for Indian cities is yet to integrate the potential of NBS for building resilience and achieving sustainability goals. Concrete examples of such solutions, especially relevant to rapidly growing cities, include conservation of urban wetlands as a form of flood control; promotion of urban agriculture toward food security, which also generates livelihood options for migrants coming to the city; and regenerating urban forestry to combat air pollution.
Quote:
City solutions that can thrive and regenerate without capital-intensive inputs from state agencies will hopefully help define the New Urban Agenda, the outcome document of the Habitat III conference to be held in Quito, Ecuador, in October 2016. The document will guide the efforts around urbanisation of a wide range of actors — nation states, city and regional leaders, international development funders, United Nations programmes and civil society — for the next 20 years. Inevitably, this agenda will also lay the groundwork for policies and approaches that will extend, and impact, far into the future.

PM Modi launches ‘Smart City Mission’ projects in Pune

The highlights of PM's speech:
Quote:
# This Smart city project in itself is a mass movement, and this experiment has been successful: PM Modi in Pune

# People of India are very smart. Once their skills are harnessed then see wonders that will happen: PM Modi in Pune

# Size of roads and builds aren’t the only way to evaluate a city. Every city has a distinct identity: PM Modi.

# Cities have the ability to digest/absorb poor people and that is why people from villages migrate to cities in large nos: PM Modi

# There was a time when urbanisation was considered as a problem but I think urbanisation must be considered as an opportunity: PM Modi

# There is a positive atmosphere of competing on development works & that too in the spirit

UD ministry, UGC come together to develop smart cities curriculum
Quote:
Currently there is no formal curriculum available for smart cities. “There is enough material on architecture and best practices in urban planning, but nothing catering exclusively to smart cities. Now the sector has ample job opportunities so why not train our youth,” said a senior UGC functionary.
Quote:
Ministry of urban development which is also the nodal agency for dealing with smart cities will be helping out UGC to design a formal curriculum. UD ministry has also initiated the process of setting up an exclusive urban planning academy. UD ministry has in the pipeline National Academy for Urban Development which will work as academic think tank of the ministry. The academy is to provide training on wide range of urban issues including policy, planning, management, governance and urban marketing.

“While working on the smart city guidelines, we realised that it was altogether a new challenge for us and that we lacked expertise to deal with the issue. We had to refer to several international practices before we could come up with our own guidelines,” said a senior ministry official who had worked on the smart city project.

Surat city to hide garbage underground with smart bins
Quote:
Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) will be spending over Rs 20 crore to convert its 1,150 dumpsters (large garbage cans) into smart underground bins in coming two years. Currently, a pilot project of converting 50 such dumpsters has been undertaken at the cost of Rs 2 crore in Udhna and Limbayat zones. This is being done as part of the Smart City project. These dumpsters will have underground tanks where the garbage will accumulate and disposed off periodically.
Where will segregation of garbage be carried out into organic, hazardous, etc? Hope tanks are secure enough not to contaminate underground water.

Giving smart cities a technological edge
Quote:
Nestled in 330 acres of sylvan surroundings and home to over 5,000 residents, India’s Rashtrapati Bhavan is being given an “intelligent” makeover with smart technologies and devices like smart meters and smart security, water and waste-management solutions besides smart citizen services.
Quote:
The IOC system, implemented by International Business Machines Corp. (IBM), has been integrated with the electrical billing system to provide data on consumption patterns of consumers, public and common areas within the estate. Given that Rashtrapati Bhavan consumes over 100,000 units of electricity daily, the move will help optimize energy management.

Additionally, newer, eco-friendly technology such as solar power, LED lamps for street lighting and other applications to reduce energy consumptions are deployed. IBM has also mapped all water domain assets such as underground water reservoirs, pump locations and tube well assets—the entire water distribution pipeline—on a Geographical Information Systems (GIS) layer to enable faster diagnostic and resolution of water incidents, and allow residents to track complaints in real-time.

IBM has also mapped waste management from waste bin collections, rickshaw routes, disposals, landfill, and processing onto its IOC system. A mobile app platform assists teams in maintaining a cleaner estate. Besides, a Citizens Mobile App, created by IBM’s IOC, allows residents to report issues using the web and mobile. The data will be supplied to city offices which can use the insights to make informed decisions.
Quote:
Cisco Systems Inc. has been collaborating with several state governments in India for Smart City projects across areas like surveillance, smart cities, automation, etc. Cisco recently named Jaipur as the first Smart+Connected Community Lighthouse City in South Asia. The Cisco Lighthouse City status credential is assigned to a select list of cities all over the world.

Cisco has also established a Smart City surveillance system in Lucknow with 280 cameras, 10,000 drones and night-vision mobile vans. Smart surveillance projects that drive citizen safety with round-the-clock monitoring will make digital crime fighting a key focus area.

Vizag Smart City is equipped with the Andhra Pradesh (AP) fibre Net, a state-wide broadband project. Cisco has announced an Internet of Everything (IoE) Innovation Centre in Vizag and is also deploying technologies like Smart Wi-Fi, Smart Safety and Security, Smart Lighting, Smart Parking, Smart Transport, Smart Bus Stops, Smart Kiosks, a Remote Expert for government Services (REGS) and Smart Education.

Microsoft Corp. has partnered with the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) in Gujarat to transform Surat—the hub of India’s diamond trade—into a smart city. Surat is the fourth-fastest growing city in the world, with a population of 5 million and a business hub that processes 80% of the world’s diamonds and meets 40% of India’s demand for textiles, according to Milind Torawane, Surat’s municipal commissioner. SMC is working with Microsoft and its partners to develop solutions for water management and urban planning (building plan approvals). Surat has already implemented several e-governance and citizen-centric solutions developed on Microsoft technologies, including those for property tax and revenue collections and material management. Microsoft has also created a city dashboard that provides a customized view of key performance indicators for the city.

Palava’s smart technology, for which it has partnered with IBM, also extends to 500 surveillance cameras that capture real-time data and, in future, will support face recognition for entry and have panic alarms every 200 metres. A smart card given to all Palava citizens will allow cashless transactions at retail centres, access to bus service, public Wi-Fi within the city’s premises, buildings and commercial points of entry.
Quote:
Bhattacharya pointed out that most of the work that technology companies are doing for the designated smart cities so far has been “pro bono”, implying that now tenders will have to be floated to execute the projects. According to Bhattacharya, a “command and control system (referring to the IOC) is important but there is also a need for a common IT architecture for all states, failing which they (the states) will have to retrofit this”.
