Smart Cities Control Centre for MP
In a major step towards realising the centre’s smart city mission (SCM), the Madhya Pradesh government recently launched the country’s first Integrated Control and Command Centre (ICCC) for seven smart cities of the state in Bhopal. The seven smart cities under SCM are Bhopal, Indore, Ujjain, Gwalior, Jabalpur, Satna, and Sagar.
The ICCC, installed in a building in Barkheda area of the state capital, would enable the authorities to monitor the status of various smart civic amenities in real-time through the sensors connected to it.
ICCC is a cloud-based Universal Internet of Things (UIoT) platform developed by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). It can run multiple city command centre operations through its multi-efficiency capabilities.
The GPS sensors installed in public transport buses, dial 100 vehicles, 108 ambulance services, smart poles, smart lights, traffic management cameras, public bike sharing, solid waste management, meteorological department updates, smart maps etc. would be linked to this centre, enabling the authorities to monitor the status of the civic amenities in real-time.
The ICCC enables the government to remotely manage and control various citizen services like smart lighting, smart parking, smart traffic and transport, waste management, water supply etc. through a single platform, which would save time and money of the government by providing an interface to the citizens.
