To help reduce the number of serious and fatal road traffic accidents Himachal Pradesh has commissioned iMAAP and iMAAP Mobile Solutions.
Designed and developed by the UK’s Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), iMAAP is a powerful new software solution for the management, analysis and evaluation of road traffic crash data. It will provide the Himachal Pradesh Government, Police, Road Authorities and other stakeholders with the vital information they require to target road safety interventions effectively, and reduce the number of fatal and serious road traffic accidents in their State.
Himachal Pradesh has some unique road safety challenges because of its terrain and extreme weather conditions. TRL’s iMAAP and iMAAP Mobile Solutions, which are based on the latest multiple platform technologies will enable police officers in the state to use tablet computers and mobile phones to collect real-time road traffic accident data at the scene of an incident. The system will also provide road safety specialists with powerful analytical tools for identifying accident trends and cluster sights, enabling more efficient and effective road safety interventions to be developed and deployed. Ultimately, the system will support the authorities in reducing the number of people dying on their roads.
