PANAJI: Transport Minister Mauvin Godinho today clarified that e-challan will not be issued to the public, till they are educated about the same.
“e-challan will not be issued to the public, till they are educated about the same. A new transport system will not be introduced till there are signboards and public educated of the same,” said Godinho
Goa government had launched the first Artificial Intelligence signal at Merces Junction in North Goa, which is one of the busiest junctions.
The system is developed and implemented by Beltech AI. The system shall benefit traffic police to monitor the traffic, issue e-challans and shall benefit with assistance in security purposes.
The Chief Minister said that the system has been employed on pilot basis at Merces junction on a PPP basis.
He said that the government intends to install AI signals across Goa, so the entire mechanism functions well.
According to officials, the AI can detect emergency vehicles such as ambulances and fire-trucks and automatically clears the road.
The AI is designed in such a way that all the signals in the city and state constantly talk to each other, thus optimising traffic at not only junction level, but city and state level.
AI can also detect vehicles which violate the traffic rules and make the road unsafe for everyone. E-challan is automatically raised to such offenders.
