BHUBANESWAR: The Bhubaneswar Smart City Ltd (BSCL) on Wednesday awarded the contract for development and installation of IT-enabled traffic management system to Gurgaon-based Envoys Electronics.
The project, Adaptive Traffic Signal Control System, will be commissioned within nine months. The company won the bid at `14.7 crore including the supply, installation and maintenance cost. Total 58 traffic signals, 14 pelican crossing and blinkers at five locations in the City will be covered under the project.
Power needed to run traffic signals will be tapped through solar panels. The project will be equipped with Composite Signal Control Strategy (CoSiCoSt) technology which has been developed by Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC). ‘’The system will improve travel time, progressive vehicular movement through intersections, reduction in congestion, equitable distribution of green phase time, faster response to traffic conditions and emergencies, predict traffic volumes and adjust signal timings,’’ BSCL CEO Vineel Krishna said.
The system will be upgraded for detection of red light violation, automatic number plate recognition, variable message signs, surveillance camera for real-time emergency and incident management system.
The Adaptive Traffic Signal Control System shall be integrated with other smart city modules at a Central Command Centre and provide real-time decision support. The proposed system is part of the Intelligent City Operations and Management Centre under the Pan City Proposal of Smart City project.
