How to make a Smart Campus – Smart Campus Programme in IIT Delhi

Abstract: This is a technical report on how a plan can be made for developing a smart campus by taking inputs from multiple stake-holders, and then prioritizing the suggestions. The focus of this smart campus initiative was smart services, sustainability, fostering research opportunities and fostering innovative entrepreneurship models. Focus was redefined to improving campus life, water and power sustainability, infrastructure mapping, information management and flow, waste treatment and outsourcing plans. Potential projects were identified and prioritized based on high impact and low complexity (Phase 1), low impact and low complexity (Phase 2), high impact & high complexity (Phase 2) and low impact & high complexity projects (Phase 3). Governance and project implementation blueprint was also developed as part of this technical report.

Keywords: Smart Campus, Smart City, Sustainability, Smart Technologies, Internet of Things.
