What Is the Next Step of India in This Context?
The mission is to develop the 100 cities into smart cities. Meanwhile, it is deduced that investments and infrastructure are two identical forces that can effectively turn any city into a smart city. With the proper understanding towards the need for technology implementation, Government has revealed about some investment plans such as:
- Investment of total US $150 billion in shipping and highway sectors across entire nation by 2019.
- Introduction of High-speed rail networks, bullet trains.
- Almost 25 hybrid buses will be started in Mumbai and it will especially start in the most commercial hub such as Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC).
- Implementation of CCTV cameras, traffic lights, traffic signs, barrier system and some other state-of-art-technology for smart tolling.
- Application of alcohol detectors, red light violation detection, driver assistance and automatic number plate recognition system for road safety.
