Each of the speakers spelt out their viewpoints on urbanisation, problems faced and possible solutions. The event was well moderated by Dr. Ashwin Mahesh, Founder, Mapunity. it was followed by Q&A. There was active participation from the audience as well.




Rapid urbanisation of cities: India is nearly one-third urbanised. The urban trend will further accelerate manifold as the economy growth happens. So, the future will see more migration of people to Urban areas which will put enormous pressure on the infrastructure like Traffic, water, electricity.

- Intelligent transport and mobility
- Smart energy and grids
- Smart Water distribution
- Smart governance
- Smart buildings / smart building solutions
- Disaster management
- Smart social infrastructure - education, health care,…


Smart City will see smart parking, smart Closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance, smart street lighting, smart water management and leak detection and community messaging.


The smart cities will be equipped with an array of modern technologies, including Internet of Things (IoT), Machine to Machine communication (M2M) and mobility. Internet of Things (IoT) will provide lot of opportunities for creation of solutions and managing them.
 
Finally action needs to be taken at the field level by the field personnel to resolve the problems reported. This is where Vitamap’s mobility platform mEdge will provide value in bridging the last mile.

It was great to connect with speakers Dr. Ashwin Mahesh, Raghuveer (Infosys) and Ashwani Garg (Intel) and sharing Vitamap's solutions and the roadmap.

An insightful evening and event where some good connections were established. We saw positive and enthusiastic response from the people for mEdge and the Vitamap's mobility vision.
We are continuing to work with customers and ecosystem partners to bring full potential of Internet of Things to reality in the days to come.
