Smart City

The conception of the “smart city” has been gaining a lot of attention these days. It refers to efficient management and economic growth of urban areas with the help of technology whose use cases can range anywhere from from city-wide public wifi systems to the efficient parking managers. Mostly, smart city programmes combine Information Technology with Internet-connected devices to come up with solutions for municipality management. Despite the limitless benefits of smart city projects, there are some challenges that come up when it comes to deployment. Most of them are related to interoperability, funding, business models, legislation and policies, existing infrastructure for existing water, transportation and energy systems, digital security and lack of clarity around benefits. Submit ideas that will help in solving the above mentioned(or other issues) that will not only solve issues of smart cities but also give masses clarity around benefits.

Hints:

  • Platform for creating awareness among citizens regarding schemes and policies undertaken in cities with real time information.
  • Efficient parking system with proper space utilization solving the crisis of overload of cars.

In order to help the society thrive and increase the overall standard of living , there are many NGOs, government institutions and societal groups that are working to achieve this task. The advent of technology and innovation has opened up new avenues to improve the societal conditions and help in such development/welfare schemes. Submit your ideas on how you can use technology for the welfare of the society.

Pollution, water scarcity and overpopulation are some of the major threats to public health. When you put your trash in a trash can, it either goes in landfills or in environmental habitats and the ocean. This is not only a threat to humans but also other creatures.
