New Delhi: In an attempt to improve road safety, reduce traffic congestion and pollution, and to bring the traffic scenario in the national capital to world class standard, the Delhi traffic police has invited expression of interest (EOI) from reputed consulting agencies to provide consultancy services required to execute the intelligent traffic management system (ITMC).

The aim of this system will be to upgrade the present traffic management to a versatile, comprehensive, integrated, data centric, and scalable intelligent traffic system.

Delhi has witnessed a steep rise in population over the last three decades. This has been accompanied by an even steeper rise in the number of registered motor vehicles. While population has doubled, the number of registered vehicles has more than tripled. On the other hand, road space has failed to keep up with the growing population and vehicle density.

As part of its endeavour to meet these challenges and ensure better enforcement of traffic laws, Delhi police intends to undertake modernisation and up-gradation programme for smart and fail proof traffic management.

The system would be backed by a robust communication backbone with state-of-the-art IT support. The technology adopted would be high resolution smart cameras, volume count and speed sensors (3D colourless lasers, 3D infrared, etc.), public information system, smart traffic control, command room, etc.

The adaptive traffic control signals, along with the latest scalable operational software, will deploy artificial intelligence with area specific solutions to be integrated into one comprehensive pan-Delhi solution in the ITMS.

There will be automatic optimisation of signal timings based on intelligent inputs through artificial intelligence system. For the purpose of automated prosecution, 3D radar based red light violation detection system (RLVD) and speed violation detection system supplemented by state-of-the art automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology with appropriate optics will strengthen quality prosecution and there will be lesser disputes to settle.
