SURVEILLING THE HIGHWAYS FOR THE GREATER GOOD….
Highways are an essential element of any country- as a means of connectivity and economic extension. Considering the supreme importance, it is only right to have effective systems watching these roads. Traditional traffic management systems are efficient for individual tasks but do not provide accurate and reliable e comprehensive solutions in all light and weather conditions. A lot of such obstacles and development s including the increasing traffic and resulting accidents demand ‘smart eyes or smart surveillance’ to detect and prevent traffic violations, accidents, and crimes or to track the vehicles involved.
Smart surveillance can resolve multiple traffic-related challenges faced by the government and the inconsistencies due to a lack of workforce and alert mechanisms. The advanced surveillance systems will also be capable of using past data to form optimal solutions alongside issuing relevant warnings to the concerned. Some systems also can capture details like the number of vehicles crossing a point, their speed if overspeeding, detection of wrong lane driving, detection of over-speeding, and identification of the physical attributes can further assist in robust law enforcement, real-time traffic management, and optimal utilization of infrastructure. ANPR systems combined with RFID sensors or other surveillance and video analytics can help in raising safety standards hand ease of movement on the roads.
A sensible and progressive AI- and ML & driven solution for highway surveillance can not only help with highway traffic monitoring and management but may also prove beneficial in the future for monitoring vegetation and agriculture, wildlife activities, and even disaster management. Unconventional thought is what it takes.
TECH SPEAKS – BRIEF
Highways play a major role in private transport and logistics. The downside is that traffic still causes too many accidents, injuries, and deaths. Real-time traffic analytics give better intelligence to authorities to manage traffic more proficiently. Automated traffic analytics using AI and ML help authorities work directly on appropriate data inputs to improve overall safety and speed.
Complete and prompt implementation of Smart Surveillance on the highways can lead to a paradigm shift for citizens and governments to benefit.
