GH Rao, who heads engineering and R&D services at HCL Technologies, has recently returned from the annual Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. He speaks of a presentation by a telecom networking company at the summit about the possibility of a city with no traffic lights, thanks to all the cars enabled with the internet of things (IoT). “All the cars will have sensors and when they sense another car or person close by, they will slow down automatically and have the ability to take decisions in a split second,” says Rao, president, engineering and R&D services, at HCL Technologies.
