Riding without helmet can now be detected
Videonetics, the World-leading Visual Computing Platform Development company and an exhibitor at the October 2018 TrafficInfraTech Expo, has announced India’s first revolutionary smart traffic solution video based ‘No Helmet Detection System’, that aims to bring down road accidents and enforce traffic discipline by penalizing two-wheeler riders who do not wear helmets. Based on Videonetics AI framework, the system can eliminate physical deployment of law enforcement officers on the road to intercept violators.
According to World Health Organization (WHO) research, there are 1.25 million people in the world die every year in road accident. At present, India accounts for highest number of road deaths in the world and amongst the vehicle categories, two wheelers have high rate of fatal accidents than four wheelers. Some of the common reasons of road accidents are over speeding, drunken driving, avoiding safety gears like seat belts and helmets, distraction to driver to name a few. As per the findings, wearing a helmet can reduce the risk of severe injury by 72% and the risk of death by 39%.
