Smart City Solutions
Rapid urbanization has mandated the need for smart city solutions. Experts' worldwide point out that smart cities will be the future enablers in accelerating economic growth and improving the quality of citizens' lifestyle.
Makeitlive smart city solutions are designed keeping in mind the growing importance of information and communication technologies (ICTs). Our comprehensive suite of smart city solutions ranges from traffic management, energy efficiency to e-governance, intelligent lighting systems, home and building efficiency systems and smart healthcare.
Our strong focus on IoT/M2M and deep understanding of wireless design and connectivity solutions. We also have several global collaborations with recognized and trusted technology ecosystems, including the Intel IOT Solution Alliance, Thread Group, IoT Global Network and Zigbee alliance.
- Makeitlive provides three different types of smart parking solutions - ZigBee Sensor-based, Ultrasonic senor-based and Wi-Fi camera-based catering to street side parking, indoor parking and multi-level parking.
- Our recently unveiled Car Parking Occupancy Detection and Management solution uses field mounted Wi-Fi-based cameras, and is a robust, reliable and cost-effective end-to-end solution. The solution comprises Wi-Fi-based outdoor HD cameras, Wi-Fi routers and Wi-Fi range extenders to provide the required Wi-Fi coverage and high-end server infrastructure.
Smart City Solutions
Makeitlive has a suite of solutions in the areas of smart energy & utilities as shown below:
Meter Data Acquisition (MDA) application for multiple protocols, meter makers, alarm/outage management, associated actions, and workflows.
Wireless Water Meter
Design and Development of application for accurate callection, and reliable transfer of utilities metering data.
The hardware design comprises RF, baseband controller, utilities sensors, and power supply.
PV Monitoring Dashboard
Web-based application to monitor and manage the Solar PV installations at customer sites and produce various dashboard reports,including trend analysis, forecast analysis, summary reports to allow invoicing, and reports to monitor workforce performance.
EV Charging Systems
Development of electronic design and firmware for electric vehicle charging stations.
Our meter data acquisition system is compatible with various types of meters and is feature-rich.
Smart Healthcare Solutions
The device, primarily will be used to monitor different vital signs of human body and transmit all medical data in real time to the doctor's remote destination.
The entire system is comprised of three major components:
- The Monitoring Device - A touch-screen, compact, robust, highly portable device that monitors all the vital signs of the human body and transmits data using any available communication interface.
- The Data Center - A PC-based application which primarily acts as a router, along with other secondary audit trail activities.
- The Response Center - A PC-based application; all medical data monitored in the device is transferred to the Response Center and displayed in real time.
Building Efficiency Research Model
Makeitlive developed the required hardware, firmware and applications to monitor and control various building efficiency systems to ensure safe, reliable, energy efficiency operations. The systems are controlled via a centralized server named Mission Control Room. There are test beds that will help execute various scenarios for the building sub-systems via the central server, such as the sensing network, micro-grid network, lighting control system, air conditioning and mechanical ventilation, and geo-fencing.
Makeitlive also helping meet its goal to enable researchers worldwide to conduct experiments remotely, as well as locally, using hardware emulation and simulation at small scale, large scale or any scale in between. The central server is deployed using cloud to facilitate access across the world. Each of the sub-systems is capable of executing independent operations as well as integrated operations. It brings all of these systems into a single access that allows reaction processing based upon inputs and data exchanged between sub-systems. The system is also capable of spearheading a network of complimentary and remotely accessible test beds.
The project was executed in three different phases:
Building Efficiency, Power and Sustainability
Makeitlive demonstrated building efficiency project to verify the actual performance, efficiency and effectiveness of various building systems. This included the capabilities to monitor, control and command test-bed facilities for safe, reliable and energy efficient operation. Each room was enabled with various different sub-systems for power control, configuration, consumption and analysis.
Building Integrated Micro Grid for Building Power Management
Control, command and configuration of power sources across the building for efficient energy management across all electrical systems and devices. Management of AC-DC loads to knit together existing pieces of instruments, external data sources, and utility grid behaviour into a cohesive, extendable, and programmable system was showcased.
Lighting Control System for Building Management
The complete lighting control system with hardware, firmware, and back-end server development was designed by Makeitlive. Luminaries like LED, DMX control, Non DALI, DALI, RGB was used, and blinds control devices with inputs from various sensors like temperature, occupancy, luminance, fault detection, scenes and schedules was also accommodated.
