NEC Technologies India (NECTI) has been awarded a contract as the master system integrator for installing CCTV surveillance and traffic management systems in Gurugram and Manesar.
As per contract, NEC will install CCTV to perform traffic enforcement and general surveillance across 115 sectors of Gurugram and Manesar and is expected to be implemented within this year.
To support the implementation of a comprehensively integrated video surveillance system, NECTI will set up IP-based outdoor security cameras across various identified locations in the city. 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.
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 centers 24 hours a day. The project will utilize the dedicated optical fiber backbone currently being laid out by the Gugugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) using robust ring network topology.
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.
Commenting on the order, Takayuki Inaba, Managing Director, NEC Technologies India said, “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 Gurugram Municipal Development Authority to create a better society and a safer environment for its residents.”
Spokesperson of Gurugram Municipal Development Authority said, “We are hopeful that the successful implementation of this project will propel Gurugram into an attractive city to live, work and visit.”
