NHAI Initiates Smart Traffic Monitoring on Roads & Highways

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) launches smart traffic management system on national highways. The initiative is a part of Incident Management System (IMS) project, which falls under Bharatmala Pariyojana. Enabling the IMS in tracking and monitoring the highways will ease traffic flow.

The National Highways Authority of India has taken up the charge of installing the surveillance system on ten national highways initially. Later, if it works out, the autonomous agency will install the mechanism across all the other national highways and Toll gates in the country. The beginning phases of the project are projected to be completed in 6 months from the time of initiation.

The new surveillance system, which has a built-in low-latency Internet Protocol (IP) camera, will curate data on the traffic at Toll gates.  The system communicates directly to the command centre in a Regional Office (RO) in the corresponding highway area. Each 30 minutes, the IP cameras will transmit tim

NHAI’s New Surveillance System for Monitoring Traffic & Highway Operations

Roads are the largest mode of transportation in India; nearly 90 percent of commuting and industrial freight are facilitated by roads. And only 2 percent of all roads, which are highways, carry around 40 percent of all trade and commerce activities. Due to this, traffic congestion on these transport networks comes as a major problem. To ease the flow of traffic and operations on roads, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) initiated the installation of the surveillance system in the country recently.

National Highways Authority of India’s advanced surveillance system comes under its ongoing Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) project, which also is known as Traffic Incident Emergency Management System (TIMS). The Central government’s autonomous agency is set to equip all Toll plazas with put the surveillance system into action by the end of 2018.

To enhance the security and traffic management infrastructure at the Toll plazas, the NHAI aims to position IP cameras at 1

The NHAI is Set to Install Video Surveillance System at Toll Plazas

The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) is taking its efforts to make the National Highway Network of India top-notch to another level. By using latest technology and infrastructure the NHAI is working to fix the problem of traffic congestion on the highway toll plazas.

As it is a known fact that the highways are the lifeline of the travel and transportation in the country, it makes it obvious to imagine the number of vehicles travel on these highway roads every day. The toll plazas create a bottleneck on these highways, and slight mismanagement can lead to heavy traffic jams near these toll plazas.

In order to avoid such scenarios and provide highway commuters with a hassle-free experience, the National Highway Authority of India has decided to install hi-tech video surveillance system at the toll plazas. The surveillance system will be equipped to do the real-time mapping of traffic congestion. It will send time-stamped photographs at a regular interval of 30 minutes to the

India Gets New Surveillance System for Incident Management

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) began the installation of a new surveillance system for India’s national highways as part of the Incident Management System (IMS) project (under the Bharatmala Pariyojna). The project will enable the IMS in monitoring the flow of traffic at Toll plazas. The NHAI has begun the task by equipping ten national highways Toll gates with the surveillance system and later will extend it to 200. The autonomous highways agency aims to eventually stock all Toll complexes in the nation with the new mechanism. The initial phase of the project is slated for completion in 6 months from the time of initiation.

Equipped with low-latency Internet Protocol (IP) cameras and special imaging technology, the new surveillance system will gather data on the traffic at Toll plazas and, through a secure local Internet connection, relay it to a command centre in a Regional Office (RO) governing the highway area. Once operational, the IP cameras will transmit time-s

Surveillance Cameras to Monitor and Ease the Highway Traffic Congestion

Traffic and transportation play an important part in modern national economies. Specifically, smart construction and operation management plays a key role in the efficient use of transportation infrastructure and thus can lead to huge economic benefits. However, many areas still suffer from unused potentials.

Highway capacity strongly depends on unpredictable incidents and accidents, which can lead to severe traffic congestions and infrastructure damage.  Furthermore, critical spots like tunnels and bridges mean a high risk for individual road users. The main challenge of traffic and transport management in these application fields is the necessity of high-quality information, in order to be able to perform efficient management strategies and decisions. In future, additional challenges in traffic and transportation have to be handled, concerning new applications like assisted, autonomous and connected driving.

So, National Highway Authority of India recently invested in several secur
