AHMEDABAD: The concept of smart cities a balance between competitiveness and sustainability is the buzzword under the current regime and the government wants to develop 100 such cities in near future. However, the connecting grid that would oversee various components -from smart traffic management system to water conservation - would work on digital systems. So experts have advocated standardization of these systems as a prerequisite.

"It is one of the central ideas behind TenSymp 2015 where we have invited experts on internet of things (IoT) to see the subject as a whole. Over 100 technology pioneers, academics, professionals and students are participating in the three-day conference from Wednesday at GIFT-City," said Anil K Roy, general co-chair of the event organized by Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
The organizers said that they hope to come out with a white paper on the basis of the proceedings of the conference.
On first day, the keynote addresses were delivered by Professor Srinivasan Ramani, former professor of IIIT Bangalore on the topic of socio-economic significance of IoT, and Miwako Doi from NIICT, Japan, on the topic of human lifestyles augmented by IoT. Ramakrishna Kappagantu, director of IEEE's Region 10 covering part of Asia-Pacific, said that Gujarat is pivotal in their planning for the future. "We are trying to mobilize institutions and industry in the state to be part of the cooperation for innovation," he said.
