Challenge

Our client is a publicly owned state-county managing council services such as masonry and infrastructural services. The biggest roadblock to the local authorities and other operators of national infrastructure was to take a bird’s eye view of the services they offer and hence lag behind in making optimal decisions during operations. In order to meet these specific needs, the city officials and local authorities decided to create an integrated system for the infrastructure they operate, and the answer is the "Smart City" platform.

Key challenges of the project were:

  • Unable to derive a holistic picture of their services in real-time and the integrated capabilities to perform timely operational actions.
  • Inability to generate or possibility to generate real-time information of operations because of no centralized source of data or visibility to the generated data.
  • No optimization of service deliveries, cost reduction or insights
  • Poor Decision making for state officials and no clarity on future plans

Solution

Our team of experts studied the project in detail and analyzed the complications that the authorities were facing. Accordingly, TatvaSoft developed this “Smart City” platform- a web-based cloud-hosted serverless platform that enables infrastructure operators and council services to obtain data-driven insights and operationalizes those insights in a timely and effective manner. Development to date has created the core foundation of a minimum viable product and its core features. Below are the major features offered by the “Smart City” platform:

Devices Management

Allows integration of IoT enabled devices into Platform that receives measurements of data directly from the devices.

Certificate

Allows generating device certificates to securely communicate between the actual device and the platform.

Alarms

Authorities will be informed instantaneously through this platform that supports alarms needed to be transmitted from the devices to take further actions.

IoT Communication

Allows IoT enabled devices to communicate with the platform using IoT technology.

ETL

Allow users to configure Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) services that import data from any third-party API source into the platform.

Map

Visualize all devices in graphical format using the data on the map.

Dashboard

Allows smart data insights for smart actions and decisions, users can also create different types of analytical dashboards to visualize the data.

Feeds

Allow external users to consume measurement data as a feed.

Export

Enables users to export device measurement data.

App Store

Create & host third-party apps that can be useful in the future for other users as well.
