Smart Cities Pavilion

Smart Cities Pavilion

The Smart Cities Mission is a program of the Government of India for carrying out urban renewal and retrofitting to rejuvenate and improve cities in India. This program includes 90 Indian cities and aims to make them more citizen friendly and sustainable.

As part of this program, the Smart City Mission envisions developing an area – within each of the 90 cities that have been selected to participate in the program – as a model of SMART development.This will serve as an example for the development of other areas within the same city, as well as other cities.

SMART Transport and Mobility are a part of this SMART development. SMART transport and mobility depend on five technologies, namely:
  1. Wireless Communications
  2. Computational technologies
  3. Data collection (floating car data, cellular data)
  4. Sensors (also inductive loop) and detection technology
  5. Video technology


SMART transport and mobility use these various technologies to deliver products and services that are bringing about disruptive changes in the world of transport and mobility. These changes include, for example, autonomous vehicles, connected cars, intelligent parking and payment systems, intelligent traffic management systems, automatic incidence detection and response systems. These technologies also make possible services such as those provided by UBER, Lyft, Ola, or ZIPCAR, and the implementation of a concept like Mobility as a Service (MaaS). These technologies are also being extensively applied to public transportations systems, for operating infrastructure and services that offer their users much more convenience, reliability, and safety at prices that are lower than ever before. In short, these technologies that contribute to SMART transport and mobility are changing how we think about, interact with, and use transport and mobility products services.

The Government of India (GoI) has recently decided on creating a National ITS Platform and a National ITS Committee to accelerate the adoption and integration of these technologies, collectively referred to as Intelligent Transport Systems. This National ITS Platform and National ITS Committee will address a wide range of issues including, but not limited to:Education, Innovation, Procurement, Standards, Pricing, Regulatory and legal frameworks.

Given the SMART City Program, and the decision of the GoI to create a NATIOANL ITS Platform and a National ITS Committee, it is clear the GoI intends to strongly support the adoption and use of ITS to contribute to a successful SMART Cities Program.

IRF Geneva recognizes the value and importance of ITS/SMART Transport and Mobility contributions to not just the SMART City Program, but also the Make in India initiative, to improving road safety, and in general making transport and mobility safer, more sustainable, and affordable.

Given these developments, IRF would like to invite companies and business to participate in the SMART CITY PAVILION that is available at the World Road Meeting. We invite companies, businesses, the SMART cities themselves, to come and participate in this pavilion to exhibit and demonstrate their products and services, interact with their peers, and other stakeholders, from both India and overseas.

Some of the topics we will focus on: Big data, Internet of Things, Cyber Security related to transport, ACES – Autonomous, Connected, Electric and Shared mobility, MaaS – Mobility as a Service.

The space at the SMART City Pavilion is limited and we invite companies to avail of the discounted rates we are offering them to participate in this pavilion.

A special award will be bestowed to the best-showcased Smart Cities project at the event.
