The city wide ‘Network of Smart Elements’ is envisaged to accomplish the following broad objectives:
Following table provides the list of smart elements as part of the scope and their objective for the implementation under this project:
- Free City Wi-Fi (limited usage)
- Paid City Wi-Fi
- Noise levels
- Air Quality Index
These sensors will be deployed across 30 locations in the city (in the vicinity of bridges and Nalas) to measure the city water levels and provide information on it.
- Traffic congestion
- Accidents incidents
- Ongoing Roadwork zones
- Speed limits
- Key notices or messages from PMC like information about any emergency or disaster, etc.
- Serve as the centralized monitoring & decision making hub for managing equipment, devices, resources and assets for Smart Elements project
- Serve as a centralized decision making centre which supports and strengthens coordination in response to incidents/emergency situations
- Serve as central information, communication, incident management hub for PMC
- Provide integration points for other existing or proposed command centre from other government agencies e.g. Police, Disaster, etc.
- Smart City Operations Center (SCOC) will enable city administration and its stakeholders in the following:
- Effective decision making
- Delivering effective governance by aggregating various data feeds from sensors and systems
- Providing interface/ dashboards to generate alert & notifications in real time
- Quick and effective response to emergency or disaster situation
Pune Smart City Development Corporation Limited (PSCDCL), has implemented and operationalized the Smart Elements project with a primary purpose of building an ecosystem of city wide ‘Network of Smart Elements’ which comprises of Smart Devices, Smart Sub-Systems and Wi-Fi Network. At the heart of this project is the Smart City Command & Control Centre.
There are over a 1000+ IoT devices commissioned as part of this initiative all of which have been integrated with the Smart City Command & Control Centre. Furthermore, several pan city government applications have been integrated too including the CCTV surveillance camera network and others. More city-based applications are proposed to be integrated.
The list of smart elements includes, but not limited to, the following:
- Environment Sensors
- Flood Sensors
- Wi-Fi Hotspots
- Tracking of Pune municipal corporation’s vehicles
- Tracking and Live status of Public transport vehicles
- Emergency Call Boxes
- Street Light Feeders
PSCDCL also encourages creation and development of local economy by providing citizens an option to build solutions on the data being captured from the smart elements and subsystems. To facilitate this, the data from various systems and devices are captured into a common platform which is used for command and control. The same data has also been exposed to the outside world for secured consumption on a staging instance. The live data from devices and systems along with one year of historic data is available in the staging instance and can be accessed through API’s created for specific type of data. The list of API’s and methods to access the same is provided in the attached document
The purpose of providing access to this data was to ensure citizen partnership in decision making, collaboration with city authorities and ultimately making Pune a better place to live.
