India Smart AMI Water Meter LoRaWAN™ White Paper
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.
The term “Smart Water” describes how water and water infrastructure can efficiently be transported, distributed and effectively managed to ensure water is saved and leveraged properly. Incorporated into the smart water process are systems designed to gather, analyze, detect, and notify concerned parties about the current water flow, consumption, distribution and cleanliness of a city’s water.
Leveraging cutting edge technology to send water data over long distances, wirelessly, at low-cost are key factors in creating an efficient solution for water management and related water maintenance activities.
With the rising need for high precision crop analysis, automated farming techniques, and collection of data from the field, the agriculture industry is looking to use IoT devices and technologies which will improve their overall crop production.
With the implementation of LoRaWAN networks, ruggedized IoT sensors, and cloud-based analytics farmers are now able to monitor specific conditions related to their crops, soil, water, feed, livestock and more.
Smart Buildings & Cities
A smart building is a combination of various systems such as energy, technology, telecommunications, and other building systems which facilitates advanced automation and optimizes building operations and maintenance. The global Smart Building Market has witnessed a significant demand due to the rise in energy costs and government initiatives.
With the Government sponsored Smart Cities Mission to create 100 smart cities across India, solutions such smart buildings solutions have created an exiting time in the IoT market.
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.
