|December 9, 2015 0

NEW DELHI, INDIA: In a bid to provide technological help to Delhi which is implementing strict measures to control pollution, Big Blue has announced a technology partnership with the Delhi Dialog Commission (DDC)— a think tank of the state government.

As a part of the partnership, IBM will deploy sensors in several locations across the city to collect data, for a three month pilot. It will also use satellite monitoring technologies to identify other sources of pollution apart from vehicular traffic and dust.

Post this, it will provide the government with relevant insights and recommend suitable policies to improve air quality.

“Vehicular traffic and dust are two main sources of pollution in the national capital. The study will help policy makers come up with ways to deal with it,” said Ramesh Gopinath, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, IBM Research India.

Ashish Khetan, Vice Chairman, DDC, said that to optimize the government’s action plan to tackle air pollution, it needs accurate, real-time insight about the situation on the ground and a better understanding of how to respond in the most effective and sustainable way.
