Intel has made significant contributions to the ‘Make in India’ initiative which is aimed at promoting domestic manufacturing and transforming India into a global design and manufacturing hub. Intel India demonstrated a range of domestically manufactured laptops and IT products at the India Tec Ecosystem Summit. The event showcased devices designed and manufactured locally.
DIGIYatra is a program run by the Ministry of Civil Aviation. It is an industry-driven program that offers an online platform to make traveling paperless and easier by eliminating the need for several identity checks. This product processes people automatically at airports by using facial recognition technology for entrance point inspections, security checks, and airline boarding. Overall, DiGIYatra has been a platform to make the country a digitally enabled society.
Roshni Das, General Manager, Regional Marketing and Partner scale, Asia Pacific and Japan, Intel Corporation, speaking about the Make in India examples, said: "There are many examples. What is important about these examples are they all create social impact, society impact. They believe that they can develop technology for good. And that is where there is an opportunity given for Make in India. I am going to talk about two solutions that we have right here by our partner. The first one is DigiYatra. DigiYatra, many of us flew in yesterday, some of us flew in directly to Delhi, and some of us ended up getting diverted to the airport, but we were here".
"But what didn't change was the experience of checking in. We had biometric sensors from the time you get into the airport, scan your tickets, and check in and board. Seamless, travels that no country can boast. This is an amazing partnership with Intel, with NITI Aayog, and one of our partners right here Bits & Bytes Integrators Pvt Ltd. And it's a fantastic solution, and it also talks about the best of the connected ecosystem between partners, airports, and passengers, and more importantly, a really eco-friendly version. You don't need to carry paper anymore, so it's also a sustainable option and solution", she further added.
Autonomous Mobile Robots
Intel has been offering technology that facilitates the creation of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs). These are the mobile solutions that function with little assistance from humans. These robots collect information about their environment using sensors and cameras, while their onboarding processing technology enables them to evaluate the data received and come to a well-informed conclusion.
Bank on Wheels
Intel has contributed to the creation of a ‘Bank on Wheels’ solution. This product consists of a mobile van fitted with multi-function kiosks and ATMs56. This solution which is a component of the “Make in India” initiative aims to reduce the cost of building bank branch infrastructure.
Unified Video Management Platform
The Unified Video Management platform is a product Intel and Videonetics have worked on together that is driven by deep learning and artificial intelligence. The platform offers situational awareness, actionable intelligence, data-driven insights, and operational efficiency.
Vehant Technologies has developed the TrafficMon suite of traffic law enforcement and monitoring tools which is powered by AWS8910 and Intel. TrafficMon helps traffic authorities improve operational effectiveness by utilizing AI and machine learning. It has multiple violation detection features and provides exceptional analytics performance for more precise insights.
National Supercomputing Mission (NSM)
The National Supercomputing Mission (NSM) was established to supply the nation with supercomputing infrastructure to fulfill the growing computational needs of researchers, MSMEs, startups, and academia. This is an initiative to increase the nation’s processing capacity. The Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY) have worked together on this mission, which is carried out by the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru, and the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Pune. Intel also contributes to the NSM which aligns with the ‘Make in India’ initiative by fostering innovation and skill development in the field of supercomputing.
