DELTA presented its Building Management and Control System (BMCS), which facilitates the integration of all building operation systems, as well as its DeltaGrid® communications platform, which collects valuable data from LED street lights. Youbike made its debut in India, exhibiting its public bike-sharing system – smart, alternative solution to Bengaluru’s never-ending traffic jams.
SMART ASIA 2017’s main event was the India-Taiwan Smart City Summit, focusing on sustainable solutions and urban renewal missions in India, specifically development and innovation in smart rail and road transportation applications. Representatives from Taiwan shared fascinating case studies on water management, the smart application of IoT to enhance city governance, digital mapping of public services and potential technology solutions to the current challenges facing infrastructure and services across major cities in India. Key representatives from India also shared their vision of transforming the domestic rail sector to achieve parity with the airport service and infrastructure, while also enhancing the road transport service and facilities, as part of the evolution of smart cities into the future.
