India-based Wave has selected IBM to provide a roadmap to develop a 4,500-acre township named Wave City in India’s National Capital Region.
The township will be designed with smart systems to improve the quality of life for residents while offering low operating costs and higher service levels.
Wave City is scheduled to be built in two phases and the first will include residential apartments, commercial complexes, shopping malls, light industries, schools and hospitals.
IBM will help Wave to create a township where all the amenities, such as clean water, energy, transportation, public safety, education and healthcare, will be integrated and managed by smart devices using sensors and other intelligent communication tools.
The roadmap also makes recommendations to help the township find ways to reduce running costs, reduce power usage, increase efficiency and improve overall quality of management.
