  • IISc building a smart factory in Bengaluru, India
    IISc building a smart factory in Bengaluru, IndiaretimesMon, 09/17/2018 - 12:45

    Armed with the Internet of Things (IoT) and data exchange in manufacturing, the factory is the future. Experts are calling it Industry 4.0. Reports peg the smart factory market to touch $215 billion by 2025, and there is no major economy in the world that is not embracing it. Indias first factory is making progress at the Centre for Product Design and Manufacturing (CPDM) of the Indian Institute of Science, with seed funding from Boeing.

    CPMD chairman says Yes, the factory will manufacture things here. But it will be a scaled-down version. We wont have the numbers of an actual factory. Refusing to divulge the details of Boeing funding, he said: The aerospace company is giving us enough (funds) to implement this revolutionary project. Indian factories now have automation, and weve made progress there. Were talking about a facility that is autonomous thinking and working on its own.

    He explained what differentiates the smart factory from the rest. A factory has five key elements: machines, tools, people who operate them, parts that are manufactured and the environment where these activities take place. In a smart factory, all these five elements exist. Whats more is the continuous activity of collecting data, analysing it and using it to attain the most optimal result from the factory.

    Data is collected from a variety of sensors on a variety of activities: The posture of a welder, the kind of energy used, the damage caused to the machine and its replacement cycle. The factory is self-aware, in a sense. It knows when a worker needs rest, when a machine needs repair or replacement, the humidity, temperature, everything. The data collected is analyzed before course correction is initiated. The network-enabled framework employed for manufacturing provides huge scope for autonomy. The Internet of Things has enabled this. In another big leap, weve made headway in natural language processing, he said.

  • Earthquake resistant structures: Is your home on a shaky ground?
    Earthquake resistant structures: Is your home on a shaky ground? retimes

    Earthquake is a major issue of concern. Over 58% of land in India is highly vulnerable to earthquakes and 38 cities fall under moderate to high risk seismic zones, Delhi, Chennai, Pune, Greater Mumbai, Kochi, Kolkata, Thiruvananthapuram, Patna, Ahmedabad, Dehradun are some of the cities falling in the vulnerability zone. 235 districts in various states fall in the high seismic zones IV and V.

    A large number of buildings constructed in the past have not been made earthquake resistant. Rising demand of housing and the consequent efforts for rapid supply has brought about a situation, where the requirements of safe building codes and practices have not been complied with.Arguably, the most important reason for unsafe construction is the lack of implementation and enforcing of the building codes. This, in fact has been the main cause of high losses among poor and middle class households said Ajay Khetarpal, CMD of Sunhill Homes Pvt Ltd.

    In urban areas, neither the urban land use planning has not been fully successful in keeping the populace away from the sources of potential manmade and/or natural hazards nor has the urban administration fully succeeded in enforcing safe building codes and practices. Some smaller urban settlements and most of rural settlements are more about lack of enforceability of the building codes by way of non- incorporation of the safety requirements in the building bye laws of local bodies / panchayats.

    The effects are multi-fold. Unsafe buildings increase the likelihood of injuries and damages. And loss of dwellings as well as work areas brings about major strains on individuals and sustainability of communities and cities.

    The approach, therefore has to be two-fold. One in respect of yet to be constructed structures and second in respect of already constructed structures.

    Firstly, the yet to be considered structures. The critical aspects in urban areas thus are not the lack of technical excellence or their individual willingness to work in accordance with the relevant earthquake safety building codes but the gaps in enforceability, non-appreciation of the provisions, resource scarcity and to certain extents exclusion from organised urban sector.The critical aspects in rural areas thus are lack of technical excellence, non-appreciation of the provisions, poverty, resource scarcity etc..

    Lack of legislative support in form of amendments in the town and country planning acts, land use zoning in hazardous areas, scheme of incentives for safety bye laws compliances and penalty for non-compliance etc. and the need for adequate training and sensitization of the technical personnel and other related officials of the local bodies / panchayat etc. which are responsible for implementing the byelaws for the building and other regulating other development plans add to the issues. General sensitization of the populace by way of regular programmes in this area is also a requisite.

    As per official study, the housing shortage at the end of 11th Plan could be taken as 26.53 million houses for 75.01 million households. That is, more than 50% of the dwellings requirements have already been constructed. Same situation would go for the work areas. How many of these dwellings and work areas would be safe against earthquakes in anybodys guess. The critical factors to be considered for already constructed structures are the high costs of retrofitting, environmental effects of retrofitting, availability of structures for retrofitting, alternative accommodation and other burdens on the occupants like displacement and costs.

    Overall, rigorous short term and long term measures would be required by the Governments, Academia, NGOs and citizens.

    Development Collateral Damage: Realty Boom! Who owns that loo emitting city, luxury or factory?retimesMon, 09/17/2018 - 12:13

    Development Collateral Damage: IT Realty Boom in Bangalore! Who owns that loo emiting luxury or factory? The PR preamble is "dedicated to generating employment and owned by cooperatives of citizens and poor farmers" - not few ruling cornies and their allies. The lakes of Bangalore were created by the Kempagowdas, Oodayars of the Mysore kingdom and the British during the 16th century. As Bangalore had no rivers, these tanks or lake bunds were created on gradient slopes to act as a water catchment. Most of the lakes and tanks were man made for purposes of:

    Drinking water
    Irrigating and fishing needs
    Influencing the micro climate of the city
    Usage by Dhobis to wash and dry clothes
    Replenishing ground water which were tapped by wells for drinking water

    In the 1960s the number of tanks and lakes was 280 and less than 80 in 1993. Until 1895 unfiltered water was supplied from tanks like Dharmambudhi (present day Bus station), Millers tank (Area opposite Cantonment railway station), Sankey and Ulsoor tanks . Can you believe that !!??? So what happens if we loose our lakes or have them polluted ? :

    Loss of irrigated areas and human (Farmers) suffering because of this.
    Loss of drinking water sources
    Reduction of water storage due to encroachment and sedimentation of pollutants
    Loss of connectivity between lakes due to encroachments of drainages and residential layouts have led to non-filling of lakes
    A study conducted by KSPCB shows that lakes are highly polluted and unfit for drinking
    Pollution of ground water
    Presence of high concentration of metals in vegetables grown using polluted lake water
    Polluted water is breeding ground for mosquitoes and has become hazardous to health causing diseases such as cholera, jaundice, skin problem s, breathing problems
    Disappearance of birds
    Decrease in flora and fauns and increase in aquatic weeds and algae due to sewage let into tanks
    Growth of water Hycinth depletes penetration of sunlight hampering fish harvesting and driving away birds like water fowl, kingfishers.
    Depletion of ground water
    Flooding of urban areas
    Construction on lakes are vulnerable to flooding and quakes

    Loot and deception in name of restoration of lakes, what else? Realizing the importance of lakes several so called initiatives were been carried out over the years with finance form central and state government and external agencies. Restoration of lakes happen under various schemes and departments and cores of money is spent doing the same. Various private companies under schemes such as adopt a lake and government agencies such as BDA, BBMP, LDA, KFD, BWSSB, NLCP, HUDCO are involved in doing so, but there are road blocks (think about poor earning babus) to this too:

    Multiple agencies involved results in lack of co-ordination
    Lack of integrated approach
    Lack of vigil on lakes and tanks
    Garbage/sewage flow into lakes
    By-Pass of court direction and laws
    Leasing of lakes to builders and hotels These agencies encroach lakes , overuse lakes and instead of developing the lake are using them to release their apartment sewage and exploiting its resources
    Corruption - sounds small balckhole, but 99% of humanity engulfed already!
    Private agencies keep away local communities whose livelihood depended on these lakes earlier.

    What could we do about our lakes ?

    Get involved with agencies who work for the protection and restoration of lakes.
    Involve school and colleges in protection of lakes
    Residents living around the lakes should take up ownership and fight for the welfare of those lakes
    Create public awareness or assume extinction

    A career in real estate is the perfect option for Millennials, says Jagmohan GargretimesMon, 09/04/2017 - 12:45

    When it comes to career options for millennials, real estate certainly tops the list, says Jagmohan Garg, a leading real estate tycoon. Apart from being an evergreen source of residual income, the sector has bright growth prospects. It has attracted a number of young people exploring a career in real estate salesand in majority of the cases, it seems to be an ideal alternative.

    As a matter of fact, the advent of technology has brought a major change in the way people conduct their businesses. It has also brought in a radical change in the way consumers and industry professionals approach the realty market. All the transactions are conducted online like never before. On the table, meetings and lengthy phone calls have been replaced by modern methods. For anyone looking forward to invest in a property, every bit of the information is just a click away. This mode of conducting a business is natural to the younger generation and suits them perfectly.

    Being highly socially-conscious, millennials are always on a lookout for doing something to make a difference in the society. Reckoned as one of the most important decisions in life, nothing surpasses the happiness your abode fills your life with.

    Helping people realize their dreams entails a feeling of personal satisfaction. This feeling is more valued as compared to simply making money. This happens to be one of the major reasons why a career in home sales is an ideal option for the new generation. The Mera Baba Group owner, Jagmohan Garg believes that it is certainly a great way you can make a difference to peoples lives and the society as a whole.

    Besides personal satisfaction, a career in real estate provides the perfect work-life balance. As a matter of fact, majority of the young generation is unable to cope up with strict norms of 9-to-5 corporate jobs. They are often unwilling to pursue a career with stern targets and requirements. On the other hand, career in real estate provides a person with great flexibility and makes for an ideal alternative. Not being stuck between fixed working hours, a real-estate business allows a person to conduct the business as per his convenience. Jagmohan Garg emphasizes that you get ample time to fulfill the duties towards your family. All the transactions can be completed, sitting on your couch with a laptop.

    Current Market Trend / GST: We are headed for interesting times in Mumbai, the GST impact is yet to kick in however, a lot of Developers have already announced GST rolled back offers, which only means, you pay 5% of Stamp Duty and the earlier 5.5% (4.5% Service Tax and 1% Mvat) so your tax obligation is restricted to just 10.5% which was earlier prior to the introduction of GST. We do not know how long, this absorption will be done by the Developers, but the good news is that owing to this the markets have started moving a little, we can see traction in developer offices and the inquiries have gone up already by 50% or so over the past few days.
