NEW DELHI: Delhi Police and Maruti Suzuki India said that they will jointly start Red Light Violation Detection and Speed Violation Detection System in the National Capital Region and is aligned with Govt’s focus to bring down accidents and fatalities.
Maruti Suzuki said that it has invested about Rs 16 Crore in setting up the system under Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program.
From its launch, the high-tech system will be under the charge of Delhi Police while Maruti Suzuki along with its implementation partners – DIMTS and Aabmatica – will maintain it for two years.
It aims to provide safe driving experience to motorists, help pedestrians in crossing the road safely and improve compliance with road traffic rules, thereby reducing accidents and fatalities at junctions.
The automated system, from violation-capturing till issuance of an e-challan, is expected to strengthen the rule enforcement with transparency. It is also expected to increase awareness on pedestrian safety and help in smooth traffic movement.
The system, set up along the Ring Road, is a 14-kms corridor between Dhaula Kuan and Sarai Kale Khan, covers high traffic intensity junctions.
The new system has sophisticated 3-D radars and over 100 high resolution cameras to track presence of vehicles and violation of traffic rules.
The cameras capture multiple offences–Red Light Violation Detection; Speed Violation Detection, Stop Line Violation, Wrong-Side Violation along with the registration number of the violating vehicle.
The system automatically encrypts and transfers the data of violation to the centralized server at Delhi Traffic Police Headquarters in Todapur, near Naraina.
The system facilitates generation of e-challans along with photo evidence and sends it to the violators through SMS/email/post. The system is capable of doing data-analytics and generating trend reports for monitoring system-effectiveness and efficiency.
The system is capable of 24×7 operation and will specially benefit road users at night.
