Gurgaon Traffic Police Launches Mobile-Based Traffic Management System With Nokia

Update: The Gurgaon Police has informed that 1,000 people have been booked for traffic violations, under the 3rd Eye initiative, within a month of its launch, reports PTI.

Nokia India, along with DenaveGurgaon police and Millenium City Welfare Society have launched 3rd Eye- a traffic management project in Gurgaon. Under the project, nearly 300 traffic police officers will be provided with 3rdEye, which is essentially a Nokia E5 smartphone, with Denave’s Tselina software installed, to monitor traffic; 50 traffic marshals have already been supplied the device.

The Tselina software would enable the police to capture photo evidence of  the traffic violation including the surroundings, vehicle license plate number and driver’s face, and adding a time-stamp, geo-tagging it and uploading it to a common server where permanent records of the traffic violations will be maintained. The photographs can also be used as evidence by the public and the police to penalize the violators.In the first phase, the project will be piloted across the East, West and Highway traffic zones.

Note that this is not the first: similar initiatives have been rolled out earlier: Hyderabad and Bengaluru already have a BlackBerry enabled traffic controlled system that enables them to track offence patterns and allows them to maintain real time Management Information System.

The Delhi Traffic Police also plans to introduce an E- Challan system under which the process of issuing challans will be completely digitized. Like we said earlier, similar to any other technology driven process, this one is also susceptible to manipulation and tampering. So, ultimately it is upto the authorities to check how the system is deployed.

The Greater Hyderabad Municipal corporation is also using geo-tagged photographs from mobile for proof of delivery of government services.
