NEC Technologies India Private Limited (NECTI), a leader in the integration of IT and network technologies, has won a contract to provide Command & Control Centre components and other IoT enabled smart ICT systems for Hubballi Dharwad Smart City limited (HDSCL). The project is expected to be implemented in a phased manner and will go live by mid-2019.
NECTI will implement an Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC), city wide surveillance system and ICT based Solid Waste Management System. Additionally, NECTI 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 & Water SCADA and others.
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 ICCC.
