Rashtrapati Bhawan or the official home of India’s President will be deploying IBM’s smart city solutions to become a smart township. Indian Government launched Smart City initiative, under which they plan to transform a number of cities to become technologically advanced.
The project involves deploying Intelligent Operations Center (IOC) that will collect data, which can be used to gather insights for enhancing processes and quality of life. “It offers integrated data visualization, near real-time collaboration and deep analytics to help enhance the ongoing efficiency that will improve the efficiency of services for its residents,” IBM stated.
As part of the ongoing smart township project, IBM will deliver smart city solutions for energy management, water management, waste and horticulture management and security systems. IBM also launched a mobile app that enables residents to report issues to city offices. “The smart presidential estate is a replicable model which can be replicated in other parts of the country through citizen’s engagement, public and private sector participation and deployment of intensive technologies. We are in the process of replicating our Rashtrapati Bhavan experience of smart township by applying and transferring our knowledge and expertise to five villages in an adjoining state,” said India’s president, Shri Pranab Mukherjee.
