In light of India’s growing urban footprint, with more than 40 percent of its population expected to live in cities by 2030, fueling over 75 percent of its economic growth, there is a need to envision and implement initiatives in consonance with opportunities and challenges arising from this rapid and massive urbanisation. By imbibing technology to the fullest various cities in India have undertaken a pathbreaking journey to transform the way they provide core infrastructure and services, clean environment and better quality of life to their citizens. We envision cities where economic development is sustainable and rationally incremental, by virtue of being based on success-oriented market drivers - such as supply and demand. The accrued benefits would be for its citizens, businesses, the government and the environment. In effect, the components of a Safe and Intelligent city would include enabling a better life, with services, mobility, environment, e-governance, economy, sustainability and inclusiveness as the pillars for success.

The Virtual Expo cum Conference will focus on the various aspects of a safe and intelligent city including round-the-clock video Surveillance, connected power grids and energy utilities, smart transport, smart buildings, smart healthcare, intelligent network & communication technology, etc. Thought leaders from all related domains shall come together to explore the intersection of technologies such as Smart Mobility, Internet of Things, M2M, Cloud, Artificial intelligence, etc. The Virtual Conference will include plenary sessions, demos, presentations, case studies and panel discussions to highlight new areas & upcoming technologies with stakeholders who are developing safe and intelligent cities.

The virtual conference is slated to feature Policy makers, urban/city planning, research/academic institutes, engineers/consultants, energy and utility experts, mobility and transportation experts, technology providers, and many more. The objective is to facilitate brainstorming on the opportunities, challenges and scope for developing a truly safe and intelligent infrastructure, encompassing the current situations pertaining to policy guidelines, regulatory norms, implementation challenges, etc., highlighting the importance of integrating ICT to support the Safe and intelligent Cities mission in India.
