Message from the CEO – New Plans for 2017
January was an exciting month and saw the launch of the redesigned Dry Waste Centre; thanks to this, we are now able to process double the amount of waste compared to earlier!
At ELCITA, we have ushered in 2017 with new plans and ideas to take Electronics City to the next level. While we continue our journey of continuous improvement of roads, drains, security, management of all types of waste, this focus this year is going to be SMART e-city and better traffic management.
We want to improve our pavements to make them more walkable, by replacing large BESCOM/BSNL boxes with SMART equipment. I envision the township glittering with energy efficient LED street lights that adjust brightness dynamically based on street usage. We will certainly collect water usage data to help conserve water. Surveillance cameras covering the township will strengthen our hands in ensuring the safety of employees and manage traffic and parking better.
In addition, we are dreaming of a SMART City Test Bed that can be used by our own companies to pilot their products and services. This could well be the launching pad for their products and services. We have enthusiastic teams from Wipro, IISc, Mapunity, Bosch, VXL, customized technologies, Tejas, TCL and other firms joining hands to realize this vision of an efficient and sustainable city.
We visualize companies and employees in e-city partnering with ELCITA for a SMART world class township. Information will be available at our Command Centre to support the governance team and on mobile, for ELCitizens to plan their daily activity better.
Over the months, we will focus on concrete actions to realize our dreams of a smart and sustainable e-city!
