The first-of-its-kind Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS), initiated by the Hyderabad Traffic Police, is set to go live in November.
ITMS is expected to offer a range of benefits including traffic junction management, detection of violations as well as intelligent traffic routing and regulation through automated alerts .
To identify potential emergencies without loss of time, police have acquired sound sensing devices that have been linked to the ITMS servers. These devices can detect unusual sounds of over 80 or 100 decibels within a 500-metre radius and alert the police. ITMS is also linked to a water-logging detector that can identify sites of water-logging. The detector will automatically inform commuters of alternate routes through public addressing systems such as virtual message boards and automated announcement systems, which are already interlinked.
Hyderabad will have 10 sound-sensing devices and 20 water-logging detectors. The sound sensing devices will be at Public Gardens, Khairatabad junction, Charminar, Jubilee Hills checkpost, Lumbini Park. Water logging detectors will at Model House, Lal Bungalow, Basheerbagh
