What is the Smart Streets Lab?

In 2015, Road Safety was included in India’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Union Minister for Transport, Highways and Shipping Nitin Gadkari pledged to bring down the rate of accidents in the country by half by 2020.

The Government of Telangana and WRI India have jointly organized the Smart Streets Lab – Telangana to pilot innovative road safety solutions to transform India’s streets. The Lab will leverage the new developments in technology and IT to ensure better and safer roads for all.

The Lab is supported by Indian School of Business-D Labs, Bosch and StartupIndia.

Why safety?

In India, 388 road accident deaths take place every day. WRI India’s research suggests that safer cities tend to be the ones with extensive mass transport, good conditions for walking and cycling, and fewer cars on the road driving short distances at safer speeds. Civic authorities can transform roads into streets, by catering to the mobility needs of a range of users such as the differently abled, the elderly, children and women, and not just vehicles.

Through the Lab, Telangana aims to source technological interventions from Internet of Things (IoT) to product innovation that will prevent our streets from becoming death and harassment traps, making them truly safe spaces for all residents.

How does the Smart Streets Lab work?

a. Bootcamp – Access to business, design, marketing, and finance expertise
b. City Advisory – mentorship and consultations with city experts
c. Pilots – Training and technical workshops on pilot design and implementation
