AI Cameras and No Helmet Detection Systems to be installed on Roads to Detect helmetless riders

Even though you don’t find any traffic police on signals, don’t be shocked if you get challan delivered to your home next time for riding without a helmet. Kerala Police has been one of the firsts to install No Helmet Detection System on all major state highways to detect riders violating traffic rules by not wearing helmets and charge heavy fines on them. They have been installing Helmet Absence Violation Detection System (HAVDS) to detect violators with cameras and to deliver system-generated e-challans to their doorsteps.

HAVDS is a digital no helmet detection system introduced by Integrated Digital Traffic Enforcement System, the flagship program by state police valued at INR 80 Cr. In the initial implementation stages, it is going to be the first project by state police of its kind.

According to the officials, a global tender had been invited for this project. HAVDS is supposed to be helpful to book violators and reduce disputes between police and the public whenever offenders have to go through vehicle inspections. It will detect the riders without helmets. The system can easily differentiate between turbans, caps, construction helmets and helmets and mark the violations. In-camera view, it can detect 2-wheelers via video, detect absence/presence of helmet on the passenger and rider, and trigger number plate recognition if they violate traffic rules.

According to the technical specs mandated by law enforcement, the traffic enforcement cameras will detect vehicles speeding on the roads exceeding a specific limit. It can also detect riders covering their faces and flag them. Evidence with a 5-second video and a high-quality picture showing violation will be saved and violators will be fined. It will also show the street name, area, timestamp and date on the images of traffic rule violations.

Red Light violation system will also be installed to detect vehicles jumping red lights or stop lines. It can also detect the vehicles entering illegal trajectories. No Helmet Detection system can easily detect violators with AI cameras and generate e-challans with a system.

AI Cameras to be used to detect Riders without Helmet

The ambitious plan of Ghaziabad Development Authority, Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS) has proposed the use of AI and to install cutting-edge equipment on Hindon Elevated Road to nab bikers without helmets, motorists violating traffic rules and manage traffic. With audio and video facilities, emergency call buttons will also be installed on a 6-lane stretch of 10.3 km at four points. The authorities have planned to install ITMS by November in association with Technosys Security Systems, according to the officials.

An official has confirmed that a survey had been conducted on vulnerable spots of Hindon Elevated Road with GDA officials across the 10.3 km long stretch. There are six AI cameras proposed to be used across the road on both sides, especially at the points of entry and exit. The system will capture the pictures of riders without helmets and two-wheelers traveling with three passengers. The system can be made out with artificial intelligence if a rider is found wearing a turban or without a helmet. The system can also detect tripling as it can perform headcount with maximum efficiency.

Similarly, these places will also have automatic number plate recognition systems to click pictures of traffic violations like over speeding of vehicles. These systems will be connected to regional traffic office databases and generate challans to send to the homes of traffic violators directly. Emergency call boxes have also been installed at vantage points on the whole stretch in case of any trouble. It is also going to have a public address system. The emergency call box will be connected to the control room with an audio and video facility.

Bottom Line

All in all, a no-helmet detection system might come up as a great help to reduce road accidents and fatal injuries at the end. With fear of heavy fines, riders will be forced to follow traffic rules and wear helmets to protect them.
