Schneiders experience as a developer of Smart Cities is impeccable. We can integrate technologies in brownfield surroundings and enmesh loopholes to achieve energy efficiency, Chaudhry said.
We are already working on various smart projects in the country. The physical and virtual worlds now need to come together. Its integration will give a seamless platform to solve the growing problem of urbanisation, he said.
Deliberating on Indias urban infrastructure, he said it is high time to identify the building blocks for making the governments Smart Cities project a reality.
The deliberations also put the spotlight on the socio-economic necessities that drive the Smart City objective, turning the table on the inadequacies of our countrys infrastructure and administrative mechanisms, and the skills that will guide the city planners, administrators and proponents to build and manage Smart Cities.
