Electronic Police Monitors Traffic Violations in China
Road traffic accidents are the primary cause of injury-related deaths in China. Aggressive driving along with failure to yield right of way and disobeying traffic signals, as well as poor road safety design and low levels of enforcement were named as the major root causes of the high number of traffic related injuries. Since one of the most common violations is disobeying red light traffic signals at intersections, this sector in particular called for an automated solution that would effectively trace the offenders. “Electronic Police” is a camera surveillance system installed above the road lanes at intersections. It has been specifically designed to monitor and detect failure to stop one’s vehicle upon a red traffic light signal. As this traffic solution helps protect lives by avoiding dangerous situations that would most likely lead to traffic incidents with the risk of severe injury, Basler is proud to be part of the “Electronic Police” project.
