RAILWAYS IRSDC PARTNERSHIP WITH OFFICE OF PRINCIPAL SCIENTIFIC ADVISER, GoI - TEMPLATE FOR INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES FOR IRSDC'S SMART STATION

You are here

Dear all 

 

The office of Principal Scientific Adviser has partnered with IRSDC (Railways) to support them to choose technologies and solutions for a 'Smart Railway Station' that can be replicated in 70-90 Railway Stations.

 

In this context, please find below a link to a template that faculty members or start ups can fill with details of their innovation (the technology needs to be relevant to a Railway station)

 

 'Call for innovation implementation proposals by Railways' https://www.psa.gov.in/web/contact/institution_survey

 

IRSDC team will evaluate the technologies through an evaluation committee formed along with the o/O of PSA. IRSDC will pilot the technology in a 'Smart Railway Station'. If the pilot of the innovative technology is successful they will recommend for further implementation in 70 to 90 Railway Stations. Hence the technology recommended should be scalable with a strong implementing support system. 

 

The areas of innovations that are of interest to IRSDC are provided in the link, stated as 'mission' related to the thematic areas:

 

1. Waste management technologies relevant to a railway station

2. Water technologies/Kiosks/Atmospheric water ATMs etc 

3. Solar enabled technologies/electrical systems

4. Plastic to value

5. Smart Kiosks

6. Electric Carts

7. Differently abled technologies (useful in Railway stations)

8. Air pollution

9. Environment related

10. Any other recommended technology for Railway stations (Trains are not to be included however if there are technologies that are relevant please add in the 'others' section)
