NMMC installs experimental smart poles in two spots in Navi Mumbai

The poles will help monitor pollution and crime situations, to name a few, in their respective locations

The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) has come up with yet another innovative measures to tackle crime and pollution in the city; Smart Poles! In a pilot project of the NMMC, two smart poles have been installed in two different locations on Navi Mumbai – Koperkhairane and the Vashi-Sanpada highway.

Details and features about NMMC’s Smart Poles:

  • Built in wireless connectivity
  • CCTV
  • Sensors to monitor temperature
  • Accurate gauging of air pollution levels
  • An emergency button to alert local police station during emergencies

The two smart poles installed by the NMMC will be monitoring daily activities around them and also tracking daily temperature and pollution levels.

The NMMC is hopeful that the two installations will bear fruitful results and provide them with reason enough to install more such smart poles in Navi Mumbai.

Residents, though enthusiastic about the idea, still doubt how far the experiment would go in helping the NMMC monitor such hotspots and most importantly, how would they be able to ensure that the installations are not stolen by miscreants.
