IBM Corp. has collaborated with the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corp. to complete a digital plan for an industrial base in Maharashtra, India, intended to help various cities fulfill their infrastructure demands.
IBM designed the integrated communication technology master plan for Dighi Port Industrial Area, which intends to build an intelligent operations center to transmit data from several agencies across six Indian states, IBM said Thursday.
The project aims to help city administrators use mobile devices, sensors and intelligent communications to manage and monitor water supply, energy, transportation, public safety, education and healthcare based on big data transmitted to the command center.
Rahul Sharma, executive director, partner and smarter cities lead of global business services at IBM India/South Asia, said the project aims to help DMICDC deliver services to citizens and generate investments in the region.
The intelligent operations center will use IBM’s smarter cities software to interconnect information intended to aid in preventing disruptions and ensuring public safety.
The digital plan is also intended to help DMICDC reduce costs, oversee power usage and manage several townships.
