Thiruvananthapuram: As part of the Integrated Traffic Management System (ITMS), around 800 new cameras will be installed on the roads across the state to trap speeders and traffic rule violators. A draft of the project, implemented under Kerala State Electronics Development Corporation Limited (KELTRON), has been submitted before the government for approval.
The new cameras will be installed in addition to the existing ones, owned by the police, other government departments and private institutions. Reportedly, the project will be developed and implemented by KELTRON and later handed over to the government after a certain period.
There will be 200 cameras that operate on radar, which can capture those who violate traffic rules. In addition, the vehicle’s image and its number plate will also be captured accurately.
Reportedly, 30 additional cameras will be installed in different parts of the state to trap those who cross red signals. Around 400 artificial intelligence-based cameras will be installed at various places too.
