Technology showcase series (Smart Cities mission) is an initiative by Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, in partnership with Invest India, that aims to provide a platform for selected technology majors active in Smart Cities Mission, to showcase their most innovative and pertinent technologies to all Smart Cities. The Smart Cities Mission, launched in 2016, is directed towards developing smart cities across the country, making them citizen friendly and sustainable. Smart cities put data and digital technology to work to make better decisions and improve the quality of life. Three layers work together to make a smart city a success – the technology base, smart applications and data analysis capabilities and adoption and usage.
Proposed format for the Technology Showcase series for Smart City Mission is to have at least 1 edition per month starting in December 2020 and ending in March 2021, where 2 technology majors would showcase latest global technologies being embraced by Smart Cities worldwide.
The First edition of the Technology showcase series was held on December 08 2020, from 1500 to 1630, and presented technologies of two major tech giants Siemens and Dell Technology.
