AI & IoT enabled Smart Security Solutions is set to revolutionize Smart Transportation sector in India writes Ashish P Dhakan, MD & CEO, Prama Hikvision India Pvt Ltd
According to a new report from Tractica (a market intelligence firm that focuses on human interaction with technology), “The Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an umbrella term that includes multiple technologies, such as Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing (NLP), Machine Reasoning and Strong AI.” Machine Learning and Deep Learning are two important and effective AI technologies for security-related applications, and are able to provide many extra values, such as creating business value, saving labor costs and increasing productivity for an enterprise user.
AI technology deployment is now in its fastestgrowing stage in many sectors. It expands the variety of applications for video surveillance. When AI is coupled with big data analysis, a lot of business value can be created. Many of our end-users in the transportation sector have expressed a high interest in AI enabled solutions.
AI enabled Smart Security solutions can help securing the fast growing Smart Transportation segment in India. Hikvision’s “AI Cloud” establishes a distributed structure incorporating cloud computing and edge computing. It extends the AI algorithm from the cloud to an edge network of on-premises video recorders and servers, and further to edge devices like security cameras. The three layer architecture supports the development of a new class of AI-powered application, becoming even smarter and faster.
AI enabled solutions can help the traffic administrator in identification of type of Vehicle, Right Direction Movement of Vehicle, Red Light Violations Detection (RLVD), Driver Behaviour (Monitoring Driver Movements, Abnormal Gestures and Postures, Drunken State, Seat Belt Violations etc.), Helmet Detection (Customized Solution is available), ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition ) Solution and e-Challan (for traffic violations) functions.
Hikvision Smart transport Solutions has the capabilities of forewarning the traffic congestion situation from a long distance. It also has Speed Limit Violation Detection Cameras and Radars for Highways to detect speed violation cases. We have implemented the pilot projects in two states in India.
The key innovations in transportation security is use of Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras at all the critical areas, these ANPR cameras helps to identify the number plate of vehicles passing through toll plaza as well as the highway or tunnel.
AI based Video Surveillance Camera and Emergency Boxes are bringing new innovations like a single camera can monitor 3 highway lanes, which will also add as a tool in creating a cost effective solution.
One major component of the Smart Transportation initiative is creating and developing an efficient urban mobility and public transport system that provides a variety of transport options. Towards this objective, recently the government has approved several large projects within the ambit of the urban infrastructure development, especially in road transportation. Close to 90 projects in the roads and flyover development segment, around 10 in Mass Rapid Transport (MRT), some in intelligent traffic management and integrated multi-modal transport have already been initiated. As per Smart Transportation initiative, there are plans underway for Electric Buses, Costal Connectivity and Seaplanes.
Smart Transportation Solution includes Buses that are highly comfortable for commuters, it has modern seats, infotainment, CCTV and Panic Switch. The introduction of Electric Buses for urban mobility will encourage people to use public transport. The mass use of public transport vehicles will reduce the number of private vehicles and pollution. One CARD for all modes of transport will be integral part of Smart Transportation; single card can be used for both buses and metro. With a focus on making ease of life in urban areas, all smart cities can plan for elevated or underground metro.
Intelligent Transportation Systems
ITS plays a pivotal role in managing any Smart City’s traffic. In this context, Hikvision’s Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS) offer Safe, Smooth and intelligent traffic management solutions. These solutions include Video Surveillance, Speed Detection, Red Light Violation Detection (RLVD), Highway Event Detection, Illegal Parking, Mobile Enforcement and Traffic Volume Detection. We have implemented these solutions in Assam and West Bengal states and Vizag city. Hikvision offers customized solutions for e-challan system for Traffic Violations like red light violation, triple riding, driving without helmet, driving without seatbelt, wrong-side driving, etc.
