VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – June 19, 2017) – Carl Data Solutions Inc. (CSE:CRL)(CSE:CRL.CN)(CNSX:CRL)(FRANKFURT:7C5)(OTC PINK:CDTAF) (“Carl” or the “Company”), a developer of Big-Data-as-a-Service (“BDaaS”)-based solutions for data integration, business intelligence, and Industrial Internet-of-Things (“IIoT”) applications, is pleased to announce that it is currently in the bidding process on two different infrastructure projects in Bhopal, one of the first Indian Smart “Lighthouse” cities. The cooperation of Export Development Canada and its Indian trade commissioners, combined with the recent acquisition of AB Embedded Systems Ltd. (“AB Embedded”) which also has a wholly-owned subsidiary in India, puts Carl Data in a strong position to receive some of the $20 Billion CAD approved for Smart City development.
Bhopal is known as one of the greenest cities in India, due to its many artificial and natural lakes. It is one of the first of 100 cities across India chosen for the national Smart City Mission. Unfortunately, the sewage network coverage is merely 12 per cent in some areas, and most of the untreated sewage is discharged into rivers, ponds or lakes, which are also the main source of municipal water. Already plans are in place to upgrade wastewater monitoring, and the FlowWorks software powered by Carl’s application is being considered because of its ease of use and competitive pricing.
Dealing with municipal solid waste has also become an acute concern, especially since much of it is simply dumped on the outskirts of urban areas. Carl Data has developed a powerful solution for efficient solid waste removal systems that incorporate an adaption of FlowWorks powered by Carl software, combined with AB Embedded’s hardware and telemetry. Greg Johnston, CEO of Carl Data Solutions, commented, “We are very excited about these Smart City opportunities in Bhopal. Getting involved at the beginning of such a huge national mission to upgrade infrastructure, will give us endless opportunities to adapt and apply our BDaaS for the IIoT.”
Kapil Mohorta, International Trade Commissioner for Canada, explained why Carl Data is in a strong position to receive a Smart City Mission contract, “AB Embedded Systems was very active in the Indian market and was very aggressive as well as supported timely action on the inquiries received.”
