AI-based surveillance camera to catch traffic offenders in intersection Dien Bien Phu- Nam Ky Khoi Nghia 


the city People’s Committee has given the green light to the pilot scheme to install AI-based surveillance cameras to catch traffic offenders which will be carried out by the municipal Department of Transport and a global monetary security technology company. Cost of the scheme in six months will be covered by the company.

Before, the Department proposed installation of AI-based video surveillance cameras for traffic flow estimation in intersections such as Dien Bien Phu Street – Nam Ky Khoi Nghia, Dien Bien Phu - Pasteur, Dien Bien Phu - Pham Ngoc Thach and Dien Bien Phu - Hai Ba Trung.

Traffic flow analysis and estimation will be based on the data from AI-based surveillance camera. City authorities will have solutions for traffic optimization.

Additionally, the surveillance camera systems will automatically detect traffic offenders to send the images of them to the traffic controlling and monitoring centers.

Along with the AI-based video surveillance cameras, the Department of Transport also proposed AI application for automatic identification of bus passengers. It will be piloted in ten buses.

Talking about the AI-based surveillance camera system project, General Director of the global monetary security technology company Dang Xuan Thuy said that the system developed by Vietnamese engineers has been piloted successfully in the southern province of Ba Ria – Vung Tau whose technology and science council has successfully checked and taken over the project.

Presently, Ba Ria – Vung Tau Province has widely implemented the project.

The system automatically detects traffic violations and robbery, fire incident and environment index to send to the host server, Director Thuy said. Hanoitimes
