Overview

The Indian government is attempting an ambitious aspirational move to “smarten” India’s cities. We do a deep dive analysis of a recent RFP for the same, which has been put out by the city of Agra. From this we extract the contours of a generic, but foundational core – which is a data exchange and edge analytics layer – which we believe should be developed as an open stack. We delve into some details of how such a stack might look – with some examples from an ongoing reference implementation and point out to some interesting technology/research challenges.
