The 5th Smart Cities India Expo Attracts Large Participation Ends on a High Note

The three-day expo was a congregation of innovators & imaginators, academia, policy makers & city administrators, government representatives, business delegates, multinationals, etc. that came to strike business deals, expand their markets, and explore new technologies and solutions in the fields of smart cities, water management, solar, transport and infrastructure. The expo saw record visitor numbers and strong sales across all disciplines.

A jury of 11 eminent members having vast experience and knowledge on the subject of smart cities across various categories such as water, education, infrastructure, etc., selected the winners.

Among the winners were New Delhi Municipal Council Smart City Ltd. for e-waste collection; Smart City Ahmedabad Development Ltd. for Intelligent Transit Management System – Automatic Fare Collection System; Smart City Ahmedabad Development Ltd. for Safe and Secure Ahmedabad project; Diesel Loco Modernisation Works Patiala for New Electric Locomotive – WAP7; Southern Power Distribution Company of Telangana Ltd. for solar rooftops, etc. The complete list of award winners can be accessed on the link (www.smartcitiesindia.com/smartcitiesindia-awards.aspx#awards).


Meanwhile, talking about their experience at the 5th Smart Cities India 2019 expo, Bharat Kaushal Managing Director, Hitachi India, said, “Cities are complex organisms of people, governments, businesses and organisations, which require holistic solutions that address the needs of all stakeholders. The 5th Smart Cities India 2019 expo functions as an integrated platform for us to showcase Hitachi’s technological prowess in the Smart City space, displaying our diversified social innovation business solutions and our commitment towards enhancing the lives of citizens digitally.”
 

Samson Khaou, Managing Director (India), Dassault Systèmes, said, “By 2030, India’s urban population will increase to more than 800 million, and over the next decade, cities will account for more than 70% of the country’s GDP. We have witnessed a push from the State governments to modernise infrastructure and build smart cities that involves building and renovating facilities, as well as construction of roads and highways. This will require significant collaboration and efficient monitoring. In addition, urban planners, architects and engineering & construction firms will leverage our 3DEXPERIENCE platform to deliver ‘more by using less’ in order to create a sustainable city that improves the life of the citizens.”


Sharing his experience of the expo, a visitor said, “We, as common people, usually do not realise the hard work put in by our government and local administrators in creating the infrastructure of our cities. This exhibition and the conferences that I attended have been an eye opener for me.” A group of students who had come exploring, discussed in excitement all the new technologies they had seen and were fascinated with some exhibits as well. “We have heard about electric vehicles, but never seen them. Here, we got to experience such vehicles first-hand and saw their charging stations. The EV technology is the future and I am glad to see our government is actively promoting it.”
