Traffic speed detection is a unique business as it helps save lives. At the same time, Municipalities and cities across the world use it to detect over-speeders and generate revenue via speeding tickets. If we talk about technology for road traffic management in the country, Vehant Technologies is a pioneer in this space. The Noida-based company recently launched India’s first 4D imaging radar-based traffic violation detection system with HD technology designed for the measurement of spot and average speed on roads and highways. The system can be used for the classification of vehicles for traffic management & traffic census proposes.
The new radar-based speed violation detection system comprises 4D radar and a lane video camera for number plate reading and evidence capture. The operations of the system are quite simple and a single system can cover up to 4 Lanes. The speed is measured by radar whereas the lane Video Cameras will automatically record the number plate of the violating vehicle. The radar sensor and cameras are interconnected and the information they capture is sent to the Local Processing Unit. The data is further sent to the central platform for live viewing of real-time feeds & violations, automating traffic management process e-challans to offenders. The System is extremely accurate as it can precisely detect and differentiate between shadows and a vehicle.
“As we started developing the radar system during this pandemic, one of the challenges faced was to test the product in actual on-site, and also developing the product took more time as the team was working from home. We have a robust partner ecosystem for radar modules and all of us worked hard to develop and launch this product even while working from home, informed Kapil Bardeja, CEO & Co Founder- Vehant Technologies.
Vehant’s radar-based traffic violation detection system is a 100% Made in India product and is certified by relevant government agencies for speed accuracy. The System can also be used to count and classify vehicles in various categories at the same time average speed of the flow is also calculated. The same is used by smart AI algorithms at the junction and at the control room level to predict traffic congestion and change the flow patterns using red light management.
Vehant is the first Indian company to launch a 4D radar-based traffic violation detection system. In transport, radar technology boasts a wide variety of applications. Radar is predestined for transport monitoring and has been established for many years as an outstanding technology solution in the traffic sector in foreign countries.
“Congestion if predicted in time can be mostly avoided. By using this technology, congestion can be predicted ahead of time and traffic diversions can happen in real-time. Red light pattern/timing can be real-time modified to ensure a smooth flow of traffic,” he said.
The company claims the radar-based speed detection system is completely designed, developed in India, it’s not just customized for Indian roads and highways but is also lower in cost as compared to foreign competitors. With schemes like Make in India, it has become easy to compete with the other major players in the market as Indian products have become the primary option as opposed to the second option which was the case some time ago.
Currently, Vehant Technologies has deployed cameras at more than 10,000 lanes in 42 smart cities across India, including Lucknow, Allahabad, Kochin, Raipur, Jabalpur, Hyderabad, Cyberabad & Satna to name a few. Moreover, he adds that the company is already in talks with 15 more smart city authorities for deployment.
