MoU signed for Smart City lab

Coimbatore Corporation has inked an agreement with German agency, Fraunhofer, to set up a lab for urban development.

Corporation Commissioner K. Vijayakarthikeyan signed the memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Fraunhofer representative Anandhi Iyer in the presence of officials from the Municipal Administration and Water Supply Department in Chennai.

Officials from the German Consulate in Chennai were also present.

Fraunhofer will help the city by giving technical inputs in water supply projects and urban mobility.

It will share its technical expertise and offer consultancy without any financial commitment, though.

The Corporation will also utilise the lab to groom its engineers in city management.
