About

After the success of the first edition of its national innovation challenge INSTINCT last year, IntelliSmart Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd. launches INSTINCT 2.0 with new challenges and opportunities.

This year as well, IntelliSmart invites an innovative pool of ideas to solve four critical and relevant challenges that can help bring about transformation in the power distribution sector through digitalisation. The challenges will revolve around Smart Metering and Advanced Metering Infrastructure that align with IntelliSmart’s business priorities, increasing viability of smart meter programme’s rollout and the demand of the modernisation efforts of the power system.


Challenges

Re-usability or safe disposal of the replaced meters

As part of the government of India’s Smart Meter National Program, 25Cr existing conventional energy/electricity meters will be replaced with smart meters. In this context, there are concerns with regard to re-usability or safe disposal of the replaced meters. At the same time, due to the scale of the replacement, there is an expected environmental concern around their disposal proposition.

View More
Hybrid Communication Module for Smart Meters

Design a Hybrid Communication Module for, where minimum two communication technologies can co-exist (EX: - cellular and RF), ensuring continuous communication between the meter and the back-end system between two communicating devices, whenever one of the technologies faces a problem, the other system will automatically step up and start communicating with the back-end system.

View More
Device level data trimming to reduce stress on AMI system

Design a solution model that will act as an intermediate intelligent layer on the meter before communication which will analyze meter event data at device level itself and based on its relevance will decide to push the information to the upstream system along with other datasets for carrying out real-time analysis to take immediate action.

View More
Develop cost effective and indigenous solutions to achieve plug and play interchangeability or integration among CCMS

Since every CCMS vendor have their own APIs, interchanging of CCMS of one make by another is not possible. Also, Integration of individual dash boards is not possible as of now for the same reason.
