Default Maruti launches automatic traffic violation detection system

Maruti Suzuki has joined hands with the Delhi Police to launch automated Red Light Violation Detection System (RLVDS) and Speed Violation Detection System (SVDS) in the capital.

The initiative was launched by the Mr. Anil Baijal, Lieutenant Governor of Delhi along with Mr. Amulya Patnaik, Commissioner, Delhi Police, Mr. R C Bhargava, Chairman, Maruti Suzuki and Mr. Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki.

The RLVDS and SVDS have been installed along a 14 km corridor on the Ring Road between Dhaula Kuan and Sarai Kale Khan. It uses 3D radars and more than 100 high resolution cameras to track vehicles that violate traffic rules. The cameras capture traffic offences like red light violation, speed violation, stop line violation, wrong-side violation and the registration number of the violating vehicle. The system automatically encrypts and transfers data to a centralized server at Delhi Traffic Police headquarters in Todapur. It generates e-challans with photo evidence, which is then sent to the violators via SMS, email or post.

The aim of this initiative is to provide a safe driving environment to motorists, help pedestrians in crossing the road safely and improve compliance with road traffic rules.

Maruti Suzuki has invested Rs. 16 crore in the project. The system will be under the charge of the Delhi Police but will be maintained by Maruti Suzuki and implementation partners DIMTS and Aabmatica for 2 years.

Very good CSR initiative by Maruti. Hopefully, this is a pilot project that they plan to take National in future.

Concurrently, can't Maruti have in-car systems that prevent/warn during such violations? That would be one cheaper way to make their cars safer.

I believe Maruti has started incorporating speed sensors in many of their newer / upcoming models. Link: (Audible speed alerts to be mandatory by July 2019). The sensors initiate warning beeps once the car crosses 80kph.

A great initiative by Maruti and Delhi Traffic Police. That crazy stretch of Ring Road is devoid of traffic signals except under flyovers - and red light violations are not common. What they need to do, apart from speed violation detection, is a lane violation detection system, because us Delhiites hate driving in lanes and in straight lines. High speed zigzag driving is the major cause of crashes in this city.

A similar system seems to be in place for the last couple of years on certain stretches of road in Kolkata. Second Hooghly Bridge, (known as Vidya Sagar Setu) and the Maa Flyover to be specific.
Once my friend was doing 68-70kmph on second Hooghly Bridge, early morning, 6am, when he received an SMS containing an e-challan, mentioning that he was doing 69kmph in a 60kmph zone with the fine amount mentioned along with his vehicle number, asking him to make an online payment within the next three days.
Same format of electronic penalty messaging happened on MAA flyover to our office cab driver, late evening.

Hopefully, the e-penalty mechanism network should widen and people would become safer drivers.

The process of catching those violating traffic rules, especially at junctions and for speeding, can be entirely automated. The authorities should embrace technology and deploy it on a mass scale. No question of expenses either as the equipment will more than pay for itself in a year or less (via fine collection).

I've seen the effect first-hand in Mumbai. It's like an overnight transformation. E.g. the cameras on the Bandra-Worli Sealink have 99.99% of the traffic calmly cruising at 80 kmph, no matter how empty / wide / long the road ahead.

This is regulatory requirement mandated by government, hence applicable to all cars/UVs, not just Maruti.

This is going to mandatory from July 2019, but Maruti was the first to implement the same last year.

Frankly, though the initiative is appreciated, what is more important is enforcement.


In Bangalore, I have seen many many 2-wheelers and cars blatantly cutting red lights. Despite the cameras and oftentimes even when traffic police are manning the crossings, they still cross without any regards. IN most cases the traffic police are not even bothered. It is only when I have pointed out to these cops, they lazily ask me if they can ride pillion with me and chase the person (most of the time, the violator disappears).
