In news from Punjab, the authorities are taking help from technology to reduce road accidents. A Delhi-based company recently put up a demonstration of 3D scanner mapping at an accident-prone area in Mohali, Punjab in the presence of Inspector General of Police (Traffic) S K Singh in Phase VII.
The system aims to identify vehicles involved in road accidents and recognise the exact reasons behind such incidents as well. The system has a range of up to 700 metres to help the district police locate unidentified vehicles. The system can map areas in four directions and would also help locate criminals. It’ll use high-resolution cameras to capture clear images of vehicles.
