Legrand Group India director Sameer Saxena here on Monday said innovations in electrical and digital building infrastructure is relevant for Smart City Project. “The Internet of Things (IoT) technology is making it easier for buildings with legacy infrastructure to save energy and improve their sustainability.
However, interoperability is essential condition for IoT development,” he said while delivering a talk on, ‘Product innovation and development – Customers perspective’ at IIT Indore. The talk was organised by Centre of Industry Relations at IIT Indore under lecture series.
Saxena said industry should adopt open and interoperable languages and APIs. “This willl enable third parties to connect to its solutions to offer new services and functionalities, thereby creating added value for end user,” he added. He said product developer should remember this. “Greater the product change, greater the potential for a breakthrough. The bigger the behaviour change, the bigger the resistance from consumers.”
Seminar on universe’s large structures
Dr Prabhakar Tiwari, from national astronomical observatories in China, visited IIT Indore and addressed a seminar on, ‘The large-scale structure of our universe with radio galaxies’ on Monday. The focus of his seminar was tests of cosmological principle (which assumes homogeneity and isotropy at large distance scales) at largest possible scales across a large redshift range. Further discussion focused on additional observations of large scale isotropy/anisotropy and existing theoretical proposals.
