AI-powered CCTV cameras to be installed on Maharashtra highways to check speed limit violations
The Maharashtra State Transport Department is working on a proposal to install AI-powered CCTV cameras on all the nine highways in the state. The cameras will be used to check speed limit violations and lane discipline violations.
The Average Speed Detection System (ASDS) will use the cameras to track the speed of vehicles over a certain stretch of road. If a vehicle exceeds the speed limit, the camera will capture the vehicle’s registration number and the violation will be recorded.
The Lane Discipline Violation Detection System (LDVS) will use the cameras to identify vehicles that are violating the designated lanes. For example, the LDVS will identify vehicles that are using the first lane from the left for heavy vehicles.
The installation of the AI-powered CCTV cameras is part of the Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS) project. The ITMS project also includes the installation of other traffic management devices, such as variable message signs and dynamic speed limit boards.
The ITMS project is expected to improve road safety and reduce traffic congestion on the highways in Maharashtra.
**Here are some of the benefits of the ITMS project:**
* Improved road safety: The AI-powered CCTV cameras will help to reduce speed limit violations and lane discipline violations, which are two of the leading causes of road accidents.
* Reduced traffic congestion: The variable message signs and dynamic speed limit boards will help to manage traffic flow and reduce congestion.
* Increased efficiency: The ITMS project will help to improve the efficiency of traffic management and make it easier for motorists to travel on the highways.
The ITMS project is a welcome initiative by the Maharashtra State Transport Department. It is expected to make the highways in Maharashtra safer and more efficient.
