Delhi traffic violations tracked with AI



The Delhi transport department is planning to install AI-powered cameras at entry points to Delhi to monitor traffic violations. Additionally, the department will modernize 1,400 bus queue shelters with digital screens and other facilities. Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot has stated that both projects will be completed within six months. The tendering process for the shelters has already started, while the cameras project will begin tendering in May.
According to a department official, the AI cameras will recognize number plates and cross-check with Parivahan data on whether the vehicles are safe for use and their pollution status. The cameras will be installed at entry points and foot overbridges. The department plans to begin installing the cameras on a pilot basis in some locations by August. The upgraded bus shelters will display the expected arrival time of the next bus, and passenger information systems will be monitored from the transport department’s control center. Additionally, the shelters will have security measures such as CCTV cameras and panic buttons, as well as special provisions for disabled and elderly commuters.
