Ensuring world class civic amenities
in urban India
Planning and management
Long-term insights based on
comprehensive data analysis,
followed up through efficient daily
management, help a city stay vital
and safe for its citizens and
Fundamental services—such as
roadways, mass transit and
utilities—make a city desirable and
livable, but the key to keeping them
viable is readiness for constant

Infrastructure. Operations. People.
What makes a city? The answer, of course, is
all three. A city is an interconnected system of
systems. A dynamic work in progress, with
progress as its watchword. A tripod that relies
on strong support for and among each of its
pillars, to become a smarter city for all.
Smarter cities drive sustainable economic
growth and prosperity for their citizens. Their
leaders have the tools to analyze data for
better decisions, anticipate problems to
resolve them proactively and coordinate
resources to operate effectively.
What is your building trying to say?
While green buildings are constructed using sustainable materials, smarter buildings are designed to run more efficiently
and, more importantly, communicate with and about their various systems.
With the unprecedented proliferation of smart sensors and control systems over the last decade, many buildings have the
ability to measure, sense and see the exact condition of practically everything in them. But these systems operate
independently, through a mix of vendors, and with different protocols and transport mechanisms. They also advance and
mature at different rates. Understanding a building from a holistic point of view requires collaboration between facilities
and IT organizations at new levels and creates the need for new transformational skills in organizations or businesses.
For decades, power was something the average person did not think much about.
Concentrated Solar Power Towers
Recently, there has been a renewed interest in solar tower power
technology, as is evident from the fact that there are several
companies involved in planning, designing and building utility size
power plants. This is an important step towards the ultimate goal of
developing commercially viable plants. There are numerous
example of case studies of applying innovative solution to solar
The solar power tower, also known as 'central tower' power plants or
power plants or power towers, is a type of using a tower to receive the
focused sunlight. It uses an array of flat, movable mirrors (called
heliostats) to focus the sun's rays upon a collector tower (the target).
Concentrated solar thermal is seen as one viable solution for
renewable, pollution free energy.

It is a rare day that you won't take some form of transportation
Cities could not exist if we didn't have transportation systems to move people and goods in, out and
around them. It has been a leading driver behind globalization: shrinking distances, seeding the emergence
of entire new economies and improving the quality of life for millions of people.
Yet many of our transportation systems are inadequate to serve the needs of the 21st century. By
integrating technology and intelligence into the physical transportation infrastructure, we can improve
capacity, enhance the traveler experience and make our transportation systems more efficient, safe, and

What do the greatest crimefighters have in
Whether they're on our streets or in our literature, they
know how to get inside a criminal's mind, and they seem to
have a sixth sense that points out the next emergency hot
spot before an event occurs.
With data collection happening everywhere for all kinds of
purposes, real-life problem solvers have new ways to
enhance their intuition. For solutions to everything from
traffic tie-ups to security breeches, public safety agencies
can gather disparate, voluminous data and use analytics to
derive new insights and uncover trends before they become
systemic issues or criminal events.
When it comes to conserving increasingly scarce natural
resources and fighting climate change, urban lighting is
on the front line. Worldwide, cities account for:
• 50% of the global population
• 75% of global electricity consumption
• 300 million lights
Street lighting improves safety and security, helps users
find their way, and highlights important features in the
urban landscape. In short, our systems are ideally suited
for today’s urban environment. We need to keep our
cities alive after dark, deliver improved service to users,
and beautify cities’ night skylines trough:
• High-performance street lighting
• Lighting for heritage buildings and monuments
• Lighting for special events
• Google images
• Lavasa Future Cities
• Masdar City
