The Delhi NCR Metro, a major public transportation system in India, was facing a challenge in providing accurate and comprehensive information to its daily commuters and tourists. The lack of a centralized platform for information about metro station details, train schedules, fare details, parking, elevators, and tourist locations was causing inconvenience to the users. The challenge was to develop a mobile app that could provide all this information accurately and conveniently. The app needed to be equipped with GPS services to help users find the nearest metro and renowned locations. An interactive map was also required to assist travelers who were familiar with the metro lines. The goal was to provide maximum information with minimum input.
Delhi NCR Metro
About The Customer
The customers of the Delhi NCR Metro app are the daily commuters and tourists using the Delhi Metro Rail Services. These include local residents, such as families, friends, and colleagues, as well as national and international tourists visiting Delhi. The app is designed to provide convenience and flexibility to these users by providing accurate and comprehensive information about the metro services. The app is particularly beneficial for tourists who are unfamiliar with the metro system and need assistance with finding metro stations, understanding train schedules, and locating tourist spots.
The solution was the development of a mobile app that provided all the necessary information about the Delhi NCR Metro. The development process involved brainstorming sessions using agile methodologies, where the team interacted persistently at each phase of the design and development. The app was designed to be user-interactive across all platforms, using design practices specific to each technology, such as Auto Layout for iPhone and Material Design for Android. The app was introduced on all major mobile platforms, including Android and iOS, to cater to the increasing number of mobile users. Regular updates were planned to provide the most recent information, even when offline. The iOS version of the app was developed using iPhone SDK, Xcode, Objective-C, Swift, and CoreData, while the Android version was developed using Android SDK, Java, SQLite, and Eclipse IDE.

Vehicle Fleet Analytics
Organizations frequently implement a maintenance strategy for their fleets of vehicles using a combination of time and usage based maintenance schedules. While effective as a whole, time and usage based schedules do not take into account driving patterns, environmental factors, and sensors currently deployed within the vehicle measuring crank voltage, ignition voltage, and acceleration, all of which have a significant influence on the overall health of the vehicle.In a typical fleet, a large percentage of road calls are related to electrical failure, with battery failure being a common cause. Battery failures result in unmet service agreement levels and costly re-adjustment of scheduled to provide replacement vehicles. To reduce the impact of unplanned maintenance, the transportation logistics company was interested in a trial of C3 Vehicle Fleet Analytics.
3M Gains Real-Time Insight with Cloud Solution
The company has a long track record of innovative technology solutions. For example, 3M helps its customers optimize parking operations by automating fee collection and other processes. To improve support for this rapidly expanding segment, 3M needed to automate its own data collection and reporting. The company had recently purchased the assets of parking, tolling, and automatic license plate reader businesses, and required better insight into these acquisitions. Chad Reed, Global Business Manager for 3M Parking Systems, says, “With thousands of installations across the world, we couldn’t keep track of our software and hardware deployments, which made it difficult to understand our market penetration.” 3M wanted a tracking application that sales staff could use to get real-time information about the type and location of 3M products in parking lots and garages. So that it could be used on-site with potential customers, the solution would have to provide access to data anytime, anywhere, and from an array of mobile devices. Jason Fox, Mobile Application Architect at 3M, upped the ante by volunteering to deliver the new app in one weekend. For Fox and his team, these requirements meant turning to the cloud instead of an on-premises datacenter. “My first thought was to go directly to the cloud because we needed to provide access not only to our salespeople, but to resellers who didn’t have access to our internal network,” says Fox. “The cloud just seemed like a logical choice.”
