NEC Technologies India is to install a surveillance system for traffic enforcement in the city of Gurugram and industrial town of Manesar.
The NEC subsidiary says its cameras will be deployed across 115 sectors of both locations to also provide general surveillance.
Takayuki Inaba, managing director, NEC Technologies India, says the company is working with Gurugram Municipal Development Authority to create a safer environment for residents.
The video surveillance system is expected to help enforce traffic through the use of artificial intelligence-based analytics software such as automatic number plate recognition and red light violation detection. This system will monitor traffic junctions and other sensitive areas to identify offence, issue alarms and issue electronic fines called e-challans to those who break traffic rules.
Initially, approximately 1,200 high-definition and ultra high-definition cameras are expected to be deployed in more than 200 traffic junctions, sending video feeds to monitoring centres 24 hours a day.
Cameras will be equipped with facial recognition technology featuring NeoFace Watch, NEC's facial recognition software platform, to identify persons of interest and support law enforcement efforts.
