Ottapalam cops get smarter with Artificial Intelligence cameras atop vehicle

Ottapalam: Kerala Police is gearing up to face the manifold challenges on the law and order front. Amid move to widely install cameras with Artificial Intelligence in public places, first police vehicle in Palakkad district with surveillance cameras has been readied here.

Four surveillance cameras have been fitted on to the official vehicle of the circle inspector at the Ottapalam police station.

The cameras mounted on the top of the vehicle are aimed at capturing images that could help in maintaining law and order, and stop traffic law violations.

For instance, as the police rush to any strife-torn region, these cameras would capture the images which would aid in the investigation later on.

The mounted cameras would continue to record traffic violations irrespective of whether the vehicle is running or stationary. The images would be examined, owner of the vehicle found and fine levied. Several offences, including speeding, can be stopped through this.

These cameras are also equipped to capture images even during night. The pictures taken by the camera can be seen real-time on the monitor in the vehicle.

A part of the funds allotted for renovating the local police station was used to install the cameras, after getting permission from the district police chief, CI M Sujith said.

As reported earlier, the Motor Vehicles Department in Kerala is also planning to install AI cameras to nab those violating traffic rules.
