HOW AUGMENTED REALITY CAN HELP CREATE SUSTAINABLE, ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SMART CITIES
New Delhi: Given the heat of climate change and the government’s plans to create sustainable cities that offer citizens a decent quality of life, the use of intelligent technological tools to address environmental threats is critical.
Smart cities aim to include climate-resistant infrastructures by introducing technology add-ons that improve comfort and support governance.
Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR), along with location or spatial intelligence, can help to develop public spaces with a holistic approach to environmental protection, good governance, wealth management, public safety and health, traffic and building conservation Heritage of an area.
AR is critical to all future spatial planning projects because it enables contextual use that we learn and adapt to better models. It scales problems and enables perspectives and healthy discussions about complex topics to be survived.

WHY INDIA NEEDS CLIMATE-RESISTANT SMART CITIES
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s fifth assessment report (IPCC, 2015) predicted that India and other tropical countries would intensify the effects of climate change, including an increase in cyclone events, storms, and extreme rainfall.
It should be noted that several Indian cities are located in coastal areas or geographically endangered regions that are exposed to natural hazards.
