In today’s India, the Government of India has implemented a program to enable the development of smarter cities leveraging cutting edge technology which will create a more scalable and sustainable environment for an ever-growing population. The Smart Cities Mission is an urban renewal and retrofitting program sponsored by the Government of India with a mission to develop 100 cities across the country making them citizen friendly and sustainable. This effort will bring forward many advancements to cities to include smart infrastructure, smart governance, smart utilities, and smart citizens.

This white paper makes an effort to demonstrate how smart technologies can solve current problems present in India and also contribute to the overall Smart Cities Mission leveraging creative analytics, cloud-based data processing, and cost-effective infrastructure and solutions.

Smart waste is the implementation of wireless solutions which improve waste management and collection processes to minimize waste build and keep the streets clean.

Smart waste collection solutions are now being deployed to monitor waste levels, provide route optimization and give real-time operational analytics. Municipalities and waste service managers have identified such solutions will help them meet sustainability goals, improve services for residents, and reduce operational costs.
