Tirupati goes smart

07 September 2023

NEC Corporation India has launched the latest smart city project in Tirupati, India, for Tirupati Smart City Corporation Limited.

Under this project, NEC India is implementing ICT solutions throughout the city and setting up a City Operations Centre (COC) in Tirupati.

The ICT solutions, including integrated services and a unified command and control centre, will facilitate real-time data collection and analysis and two-way communications, which will help to provide more efficient responses to issues related to safety, security, healthcare, the environment, and more. A city network infrastructure and on-premises data centre will help implement a more data-backed decision-making mechanism for the operations of the city.

NEC India will also deploy its Intelligent traffic management system, which will be a crucial element in streamlining traffic, managing congestion during peak hours, and minimising road accidents.

In addition, NEC India will be supporting the authorities in Tirupati to deliver municipal services through systems across key areas. These include facial recognition systems, intelligent video management systems, and the integration of feeds from existing and proposed CCTV cameras across the city. NEC India will also be implementing smart water solutions, environmental sensors, and public address systems to assist in the smooth governance of the city.

To improve the aesthetics of the city, digital billboards and variable message sign boards will be implemented in designated areas. Moreover, as part of enhancing engagement, a city collaboration platform will be developed to provide visitors and residents with important local information through a web portal and mobile phones.
