KOLKATA: A US-based startup has started testing the of the ’s ring in New Town using artificial intelligence () and internet-of things (IOT) technology that monitors natural vibrations and deflections. Last year, a spherical structure with the Biswa Bangla logo fixed to the Kolkata Gate fell from a height of 40 metres. Since then, the authorities have been looking into all safety aspects of the entire structure, which has a hanging restaurant at the top. Officials said that there is no plan right now to re-attach the globe to the Kolkata Gate.

Last week, the startup representatives met senior officials of Hidco. “For the moment, the firm has been asked to conduct tests on the Haldiram’s flyover and on the ring of the Kolkata Gate. The firm may be engaged to conduct surveys of other elevated structures in the township if the demonstration is effective,” said an official.

Hidco officials said that special gyroscopic sensors have been fixed on the ring to measure the natural vibrations while vehicular movement occurs nearby. The sensors will then feed the data into a computer. Officials added that the natural vibration rate of the ring has been picking up towards the night. “This may be due to heavy goods vehicles passing by the spot more during the night. The experts will come up with an idea as to what should be the normal vibration rate for the ring,” said a Hidco official.

The authorities want to ensure that the structure has the stability to take the pressure after the restaurant opens to the public. “It will be a continuous monitoring process to ensure the safety of the ring,” said a Hidco official.
