by May 23, 2017 0 comments

India is becoming smarter through tech deployment.  Like many other sectors, transportation too is using extensive technologies thanks to the national and state government policies.

Many technology companies are working in high density areas and other metro cities which are already developed but really still have a primitive transport system.

Challenges of Smart Transport

With expanding urban footprints in India, the main challenge in transportation remains in the areas of parking availability, traffic management and safety measurements.

However, Indian technology firms are dedicated to meet the challenges and already working and delivering new solutions. These involve data analytics, Business Intelligence and IoT for smart urban cities.

Park Your Car Smartly

Get My Parking is a Delhi based start up, providing Cloud-based mobile parking technology which caters to the problems of parking spaces in the capital.

It provides IOT-based smart parking platform which digitizes any type of parking space. Its mobile app gives bird’s eye view of all the legal parking lots and empowers users to search, book and navigate to the empty parking space. The user can save time, fuel and energy and reduce urban traffic congestion and consequent pollution. Their data-centric approach gives them insights into the urban transport landscape which can be utilized in better urban policy making for smart cities.

For Delhi-NCR, this tech startup is using data analytics for organized parking. It is present at 150+ locations and claims to process approximately 40,000 parkings per day with 400 smart parking systems.

By using this app, users spend less time looking for parking, book in advance, pay online, navigate directly for the slots they have booked and even save fuel. The app is present on iOS and Android platforms for consumers for free. There are other versions of apps available for parking service providers as well as for the traffic departments aligned with the government.

Variable Message Signage Display System (VMS) provides information to motorists like route/rerouting information, warnings and toll rates. The objective is to ensure a safe journey with right information, to provide traffic updates for better decision making and to make use of roads efficiently.

Wireless Traffic Management System (WTMS) is an eco-friendly, solar-powered wireless system for effective traffic control. The solution aims for improving efficiency of Traffic Control System.

Bus Destination Display System provides Real-Time location information to Passengers through AV systems to reach their destination safely. The solution is to provide longer visibility for passengers waiting at bus stopS, to facilitate audio announcements to on-board passengers as well as to acknowledge Real-Time Location information.

Efftronics has deployed these solutions to organizations like Indian Railways, DRDO, Larsen & Toubro, NTPC, GE transportation amongst others.
