The Indian multinational Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has won another smart city project as part of the government’s Smart City Mission. It has been named as the implementation partner to convert Pune into a smart city.

 

The letter of intent was handed over by the Municipal Commissioner of Pune, Mr Kunal Kumar, to representatives of L&T Construction’s Smart World & Communication Business Unit, which will be executing the project.

 

The scope of work includes enabling wi-fi at around 200 strategic locations across Pune, establishing emergency call boxes and public address systems, environmental sensors, variable messaging displays, network connectivity and video analytics integration.

 

A Smart City Operation Centre (SCOC) will be set up to integrate all the services and applications on a single platform. This single point interface will be a holistic platform with the potential to accommodate all the future needs through integration of various citizen-centric applications. The project includes a revenue monetisation model.

 

L&T previously set up the country’s largest surveillance project in Mumbai involving more than 5,000 cameras across 1,500 locations and is in the process of developing Nagpur into India’s first large-scale integrated smart city. Projects are also underway in Delhi, Lucknow and Hyderabad.

 

“As a master systems integrator, we will use cutting edge technology to provide solutions capable of high end analytics on a futuristic and eminently scalable platform,” said Mr S N Subrahmanyan, deputy managing director and president at L&T.

 

Mr Kumar said: “After being selected as a top city under the smart cities mission, Pune Municipal Corporation has begun the journey towards building Pune as a next generation smart city.” He added that the project would be a role model for the rest of the country to follow, in line with the best-in class examples in the world.

 

Smart World & Communication business unit offers end-to-end solutions comprising security solutions, communication network and telecom infrastructure and smart infrastructure as a master systems integrator in collaboration with other businesses within the L&T Group such as L&T Infotech, L&T Electrical & Automation IC and L&T Technology Services.
