With the intention to curb the habit of driving a two-wheeler without a helmet, the Hyderabad City Police has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad.
Here, the city traffic police will be using an artificial intelligence-based programme developed by the premier institute to automatically detect motorcyclists who are driving without helmets in surveillance videos.
IIT Hyderabad has procured the required permissions to access to video data from the city’s network of CCTV cameras. Reports have suggested that the technology is in a “ready-to-be-deployed stage”.
Dinesh Singh, one of the research scholars on the project, told a leading daily, “It will be fully automatic along with a web interface to verify the alerts by the operators (traffic police, etc.). From there, it will be connected to the existing RTO website to generate challans and send a notification to the riders through an SMS.”
The technology will follow the following stages:
- The solution is partially installed in cameras
- Also partially installed on the servers of the central police control room
- A software is installed on an embedded card attached to CCTV cameras
- It helps in the detection of violators (in this case, motorcyclists riding without helmets)
- The system will then send out an alert to the central alert database
Hyderabad is seeing a definite shift in the technological space. Andhra Pradesh chief minister Chandrababu Naidu has turned the city into an IT hub which houses India’s Google and Facebook headquarters. (Andhra Pradesh currently shares its de jure capital Hyderabad with the neighbouring state Telangana, which was formed from the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh in 2014.)

There are a few word for this. One is spying. Not by foreign and possible hostile nations. But by your own governmental officials.
Another word is betrayal. A huge violation of the right to privacy. The IT-industry see huge profits in installing spy-cameras across every city in India. The Government will see you in every corner of town.
A third word is totalitarianism. The attitude of turbo capitalists is to hell with anybody’s right not to be constantly watched by their government. There are many laws. Not a singel human being will be able to avoid breaking any of them. The Indian police wants to send notification of fines by SMS. Removing every citizens right to talk and explain their case to a sane person before being penalised.
We are not facing a sole Indian problem. There are enough totalitarian attitudes among politician’s in almost every nation, to create a global dictatorship using apps and robots to enforce and punish.
The bible explain what kind of horrors that will take places just before the return of Jesus. The last generation on Earth willl facd a time of distress and agony as nothing seen since the creation.
because those will be days of distress unequalled from the beginning, when God created the world, until now – and never to be equalled again.
The “Big Brother-Syndrom” promoted by the IT Industry in India is just one of many examples.
Be ready for a bumpy ride, as we eagerly awaits to be rescued from all the madness that takes place one the face of the Earth.

Great post! They are still working on being a cashless society also.
Shalom and love in Jesus.
Thanks for this comment. Indiia tries to match the Skandinavian nations in becomming the first cashless society. In 2018-2019, it will not be possible. Simply because the Indian IT-networks are not stable. If all cash are removed, the Indian ecconomy will suffer badly. But they will suceed. At the end oof the age of grace, cash will be banned, regardless of sufferigs.
