With many motorists violating the 3-km commute cap set by authorities, the Telangana police on Wednesday decided to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to crack down on those in the wrong from Thursday.
By assessing the movement of motorists through CCTV footage from various junctions in Hyderabad, Cyberabad and Rachakonda, police will calculate the distance travelled by each motorist using AI. “As of now, there are 250 junctions, where automatic number plate readers (ANPR) are set up. Using ANPR and AI, violators will be identified. The system will automatically record the distance travelled by motorists. ANPR will capture all vehicle details at every given junction,” sources in the office of the director general of police told TOI.
The state government for the benefit of the citizens during the lockdown period, permitted people to travel a maximum of three km to buy provisions during the day up to 7 pm. As of now, police are physically seizing vehicles whenever they come across motorists who are coming onto the roads without any valid purpose.
