Greater Chennai Corporation goes digital

To give boost to its smart city project, Greater Chennai Corporation is planning to set up a Command and Control Centre (CCC) that will provide real-time information on the status of civic utilities in the city. Comman man can access this information through the website or through the smartphone app.

Chennai’s T Nagar will be covered by CCC and later on the whole city will be covered under the command centre.

The new system will use a network of sensors and cameras, fitted at public spaces and on civic utilities in the smart city area, to gather live feed.

For instance, a sensor-fitted garbage bin will notify the level of trash in it and how many times in a day it has been cleared. A sensor on a streetlight can indicate its functional status and a traffic CCTV camera will provide information on traffic movement or violations to the officer manning the feed at the CCC headquarters.
