About Us

The Smart City Research Center is setup with support from MEITY (Government of India), Smart City Mission and Government of Telangana at IIITH. The research center includes a Living Lab, that is a setup with support from EBTC and Amsterdam Innovation Arena.

There is a huge push for smart cities in India under the Smart Cities Mission, a new initiative by the Government of India to drive economic growth and improve the quality of life of people by enabling local development and harnessing technology to create smart outcomes for citizens. In this ambitious project, 100 cities are being covered for the duration of 5 years with a budget of Rs.100 crore per city per year. The goal of the Living Lab plan is to create an urban area enhancing three value domains: social, economic and environmental.

Thus developed Living Lab shall enable the following:

  • Get expertise in IoT for Smart Cities related research and deployment
  • Generate data for research
  • Creation of a viable innovation and demand driven ecosystem in universities.
  • Provide a test bench for IoT based Smart City implementations to start-ups as well as big companies

Living Lab

“With support from EU and Indian agencies, IIITH launched a Living Lab to collaborate with government bodies, start-ups and big organisations on Smart City solutions”. The IIITH campus would include different IoT verticals related to air quality, building energy, water quantity and quality, street lighting, etc.

Through the Living Lab, IIIT-H plans to transform the campus into a platform for learning, experimentation and for showcasing new ideas and approaches. “As technology goes mainstream and directly into homes, buildings, campuses and cities, it is imperative that access to such spaces should be available to ensure that the right products are defined, designed and built. Without live access to such spaces, solutions or products may end up being theoretical and not actually usable,” explains Professor Ramesh.
