Smart Cities Consulting
Our Smart Cities consulting practice is focused on development of new smart cities, and existing cities. We
digital platforms are used for city management and service deliveries to residents through portals that push
information to smart phones and devices. System delivers paperless bills, and users can pay online.
Smart cities are designed to be economically sustainable ecosystems. We emphasize that infrastructure planned
now should cater to future populations 50-100 years in future. Land use has to be optimized and shared
between city 's civil infrastructures and food baskets to sustain the needs for future. The city civil structures are
connected to digital systems to be services-enabled from very start.
Why are smart cites being created?
Statistics show that by 2050 over 70% population will be living in urban cities around the world, consuming
80% of energy, water, food and financial capital. All nations are already either making new cities or
converting new cities with "smart" services. There are 1500 smart cities in different development phases. All
infrastructures will be digitally managed using citywide ICT platform & e-portals will communicate with
citizens without human intervention wherever possible.
Smart Cities & Smart Services?
Most of us have used more then one smart service from the portfolio of services used in Smart Cities. Voice &
data services are available around the city which means all services can be enabled on existing ICT platform. Lets
look at some services already enabled in most cities today.
- Traffic police is replaced by traffic lights, & traffic lights are being replaced by side lanes to smooth the
traffic flows. Security cameras have replaced policemen. All public transport is security enabled. .
Telephone booths lost their viability being replaced by smart phones, the phones have replaced many
devices of yesteryears. Email's & messenger replaced telegrams & telex, and post offices have shrunk to
kiosk sharing space with the bank as online banking reduced banks walk-in clients.
- We shop and pay online, opt for paperless bank statements and all bills and pay online. We operate
garage doors, air conditioning, & car doors from remote places using our smart phones.
