In an effort to keep an eye on violators and control incidents of road rage, the city traffic police have joined hands with mobile manufacturer Nokia to launch a traffic management project called ‘3rdEYE’.

The project, aimed to leverage technology as an enabler to curb traffic disruption in Millennium City, will be implemented on all major roads including MG Road and Gurgaon Expressway.

Denave, a technology-powered sales enabling services provider, has created a software —Tselina— that will be integrated with Nokia E5 to capture and report traffic rule violations.

The mobile set will click photographs of offenders and send the same to the control room through GPRS for preparing challans. The violators would get challans at their addresses.

“Nokia has given 50 sets of Nokia E5 to the police which will be used by traffic constables for clicking photos of offenders. The photos would land on the server of Gurgaon police through a software specially designed by Denave.

The place, time and date of the incident will also be recorded,” said Gurgaon police commissioner SS Deswal.

He said the police team deputed at the server will then send challans to the homes of violators. The number of mobile sets will be increased from 50 to 200 soon, he added.

“Traffic constables have been trained in handling the mobile sets. We have issued 250 challans during the trial period of 15 days,” said Alok Mittal, joint commissioner of Gurgaon police.

Besides, an outdoor surveillance system will be developed in eight cities of the state, including Gurgaon and Faridabad, for keeping an eye on traffic rule-breakers.

For developing this system in Gurgaon, an amount of Rs 15 crore has been paid to HARTRON, which is the nodal agency for this purpose, said Deswal.
