A Smart Streets Lab to pilot innovative road-safety and women-safety solutions and leverage new developments in technology and IT to transform the streets of Hyderabad was launched on Thursday.
From October to December, the Lab will support the launch and operationalisation of a few pilot projects in the city, the release said.
A release on the launch function, in which Principal Secretary (Information Technology) Jayesh Ranjan participated, said an online challenge seeking applications for projects designed to make Hyderabad’s streets ‘smart’ was also announced.
The initiative of the State government and WRI India Ross Center would focus on technological interventions — from interconnected and inter-networking smart devices (IoT) to product innovation — to make the streets secure, equitable and easy-to-navigate.
It is open for projects led by civil society, entrepreneurs, technology companies, consortiums and partnerships.
