NEC to deploy hitech traffic surveillance system in India

TOKYO, May 9, 2019

NEC Corporation, a global leader in the integration of IT and network technologies, said it has been appointed as the master system integrator for the installation of CCTV surveillance and traffic management systems in Gurugram City, India.
NEC said as a first step, its subsidiary, NEC Technologies India (NECTI) will set up IP-based outdoor security cameras across various identified locations in the city to support the implementation of a comprehensively integrated video surveillance system. 
Under this project, selected locations in Gurugram will be fitted with a variety of CCTV cameras to perform traffic enforcement and general surveillance across 115 sectors of Gurugram and Manesar regions of the north Indian state of Haryana. 
The project, which was awarded in March, is likely to be implemented within this year, said a statement from NEC.
The video surveillance system from NEC will help in enforcing traffic discipline through the use of AI-based analytics software such as Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) and Red Light Violation Detection (RLVD). 
The system will monitor traffic junctions and other sensitive areas to identify traffic offenders and issue alarms. Subsequent e-challans (electronic fines) can be issued to offenders who are captured flouting traffic rules with the help of these systems, said a statement from the company. 
In the first phase of the project, approximately 1,200 High Definition (HD) and Ultra High Definition (UHD) cameras are expected to be deployed in over 200 traffic junctions, sending video feeds to monitoring centres 24 hours a day. 
The project will utilise the dedicated optical fibre backbone currently being laid out by the Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) using robust ring network topology, said the statement.
Cameras deployed in key selected locations will be equipped with facial recognition technology featuring NeoFace Watch, NEC's flagship facial recognition software platform, to identify persons of interest and other suspicious elements to support law enforcement efforts, it added. 
According to GMDA authorities, the current population of Gurugram is estimated to be close to 2.5 million and is expected to grow rapidly over the next few years. 
"We need to constantly aim and strive to work towards enhancing public welfare, and NEC's leading position in the field of public safety is paramount behind our decision to work with them. We are hopeful that the successful implementation of this project will propel Gurugram into an attractive city to live, work and visit," they added.
Takayuki Inaba, managing director, NEC Technologies India, said: "Gurugram, one of Delhi's major satellite cities, is host to many leading brands and representatives from across the world and is widely acknowledged as a finance and technology hub."
"We are honoured to be awarded this project and contribute to Gurugram's smart city ambitions," he noted. 
"NEC aims to leverage our global expertise while bringing cutting-edge technologies and established best-practices to Gurugram as a master system integrator. We are looking forward to working closely with the GMDA to create a better society and a safer environment for its residents," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
