The Madhya Pradesh government has launched the country’s first Integrated Control and Command Centre (ICCC) for seven smart cities in Bhopal. The cities under Smart City Mission are Bhopal, Indore, Ujjain, Gwalior, Jabalpur, Satna, and Sagar.
The ICCC would enable the authorities to monitor the status of various smart civic amenities in real-time through the sensors connected to it. The Centre is a cloud-based Universal Internet of Things (UIoT) platform developed by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). It can run multiple city command centre operations through its multi-efficiency capabilities.
The GPS sensors installed in public transport buses, dial 100 vehicles, 108 ambulance services, smart poles, smart lights, traffic management cameras, public bike sharing, solid waste management, meteorological department updates, smart maps etc. would be linked to this centre, enabling the authorities to monitor the status of the civic amenities in real-time.
