Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, will draft the data exchange specification for Smart Cities Mission (SCM) as directed by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA).
On Wednesday, a pilot test was conducted in Bengaluru regarding the same. MoHUA has begun the development of Indian Urban Data Exchange (IUDX) for the Smart Cities Mission.
The mission aims at development of infrastructure and services, integrated approaches to problem-solving, promotion of co-creation and bottom-up innovation using technology and the creation of sustainable outcomes by adopting the circular economy model.
Smart sensors, which are deployed in cities, will help the SCM authorities generate additional business insights to improve their operational excellence.
The standard framework will enable easy exchange of data between various departments and organisations inside the city.
"Such a framework will enable true data empowerment for the city’s administrators and other stakeholders and usher in the phase of data-driven, smart operations for our cities,” said an IISc official.
IISc has been asked to lead this effort to create the specifications for such a data exchange platform through a broad collaboration.
