Infosys: IIC Connected Vehicle Urban Traffic Management Testbed
Road congestion and strained transportation networks are persistent concerns associated with the rapid urbanization of developing and developed economies. A 2015 study1 reported that travel delays due to traffic congestion led to the waste of 3.1 billion gallons of fuel and a loss of nearly 7 billion extra hours to travelers during rush hour traffic, with a nationwide cost of around $160 billion, or $960 per commuter. Alleviating traffic congestion, in addition to improving safety, is leading public and private organizations to explore new mobility paradigms such as ride-share autonomous vehicles. GOAL The goal of the Connected Vehicle Urban Traffic Management (CVUTM) testbed is to create a smart road traffic ecosystem featuring connected vehicles using vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) technologies, sensor fusion, industrial IoT platforms, cloud infrastructure, and edge analytics. This testbed will serve to preempt road congestion, automatically detect unusual eventson the road, and enable cooperative movement of traffic. In due course, both autonomous and non-autonomous vehicles will participate in this ecosystem with a goal of minimizing road congestion and improve overall improving motorist and pedestrian safety.
Infosys: IIC - Smart Energy Management Testbed
Energy costs continue to increase globally, driven by the depletion of fossil fuels, geopolitical instability and disruptions in the global supply chain. At the same time, organizations are constantly thriving to reduce overheads and minimize the cost of the operations. Current challenges include lack of instrumentation to get the energy consumption details and lack of tools to visualize and analyze the energy consumption patterns. This hinders stakeholders from taking any meaningful action to optimize energy consumption and reduce the overall energy cost. GOALS • Develop an ‘energy command center’ that is able to provide visibility into energy consumption across the campus • Provide various tools to compare, predict and analyze energy consumption and performance • Provide IT governance with the help of alerts, notification, workflows, ticketing and augmented reality tools to facilitate the operations
Infosys: IIC Asset Efficiency Testbed
A recent study on maturity of Asset Efficiency from Infosys and the Institute for Industrial Management (FIR) at Aachen University revealed that 85 percent of manufacturing companies globally are aware of asset efficiency, but only 15 percent have implemented it at a systematic level. Current challenges include lack of instrumentation of the assets, missing real-time data analytics, lack of context due to missing information from other systems, and lack of a holistic focus with other aspects of efficiency like energy, utilization, operations, and serviceability.GOALTo collect asset information efficiently and accurately in real-time and run analytics to make the right decisions
