FI-MEDIA joins TSDSI M2M/IoT Working Group on Smart villages & Agriculture
On 6th May, 2015, the FI-MEDIA team participated to the TSDSI M2M/IoT Working Group audio call, whose objective was to finalise their terms of reference document and scope and assigning responsibilities. During the call, the project team organised a F2F meeting for the following day, on 7th May, 2015, at IIT Delhi. As a result the team held a fruitful F2Fmeeting with one of the M2M/IoT Work Group's Delhi based members, Mr. Prasanjeet Das, Senior Engineering Manager at Irdeto, with a view to further explore the possibilities of forming clusters in this area. At this meeting, we held a brainstorming session on the requirements for a smart village and how ICT could be used to form a cooperative environment, which would provide a number of tangible benefits, including increased profits, more trade potential, easier way of life, employability, better quality of life (keeping young people from moving to the big cities).
