By mid-2019, the Hubballi Dharwad Smart City will implement Command & Control Centre components and other IoT enabled smart ICT systems. The technology is provided by Japan-based NEC Corporation’s Indian arm, NEC Technologies.
The city will implement an Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC), city-wide surveillance system and ICT-based solid waste management system. Additionally, NEC Technologies will also integrate ICCC with various other smart elements, including an intelligent transport management system, parking management system, smart poles, a geographic information system, power and water SCADA and others.
"Efficient, effective and timely implementation of various citizen friendly ICT systems and smart elements has been the key objective of Hubballi Dharwad Smart City. We have already implemented many smart systems like a multi-level public parking management system, e-governance and intelligent transport management system in the twin cities of Hubballi-Dharwad," said Hephsiba Rani Korlapati, Managing Director, Hubballi Dharwad Smart City.
One of the key elements of the project is an ICT-based solid waste management system in which RFID tags will be placed on around 300,000 household bins, and garbage collection activity will be centrally tracked from the ICCC, right from the bin collection at households until dumping in designated areas. Citizens will also be able to send their grievances related to garbage collection directly to respective authorities through a smart mobile application. Higher authorities in Hubli Dharwad Municipal Corporation (HDMC) would be able to directly monitor and track all these activities through a common dashboard at the ICCC.
