Mysuru: After introducing mobile radars and continued patrolling on the Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway to check overspeeding, now AI-based cameras will keep a vigil on traffic violations on the stretch.
ADGP Alok Kumar who inspected Mandya and Ganangur checkposts on Tuesday tweeted that “Inspected the progress of road safety related work on Bengaluru-Mysore Expressway. AI Based cameras deployed on trial basis to capture over speeding.” He also tweeted that intelligent traffic management system will soon be introduced in Mysuru and he has invited citizens to give suggestions.
It is said that introducing AI based cameras will come into handy especially at nights. For, it would be risky to deploy police to keep vigil on violators during night and on a trial basis, AI based cameras will be used. With the help of the footage captured in cameras, e-challans will be generated and violators would be notified, it is reported.
The NHAI will soon install cautionary boards near Ganangur and Kaniminike toll plazas and measures are being evolved for proper entry and exit points on the Expressway, it is reported.
Meanwhile, the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has banned two-wheelers, auto rickshaws, tractors and others on the Expressway. The new gazette notification will come into effect from August 1.
