Delhi-Agra national highway to have Vehicle Actuated Speed Display

The Delhi-Agra national highway will be India’s first national highway corridor to have screens that would warn commuters if they drive beyond the allowed speed limit.

The Vehicle Actuated Speed Display (VASD) will be established at different locations that would capture and present the vehicle speed in real-time.

It is part of the first significant move by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to set in place the first Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) on any NH, which intends to make the corridor smooth and safe for traffic movement. The authority has floated a tender inviting bids from potential players.

The project extent will be from the start point of 4.4 km long six lane Badarpur Elevated Highway to Agra.

The ATMS software will also be able to create an e-challan automatically and integrate with the Vahan database, NIC and FASTag for getting the vehicle registration and details needed for e-challan and cross-verification of the vehicle class.

As per the proposal document, the stretch will get equipment and sensors that will accumulate information on road and traffic conditions, violations, incidents and weather conditions. The information maintained in the system will get transferred to the traffic management centre for processing and action.

The system essentially operates with feed from CCTVs and will alert incidents to the police and emergency service providers for quick rescue at the site. The 180 km stretch will get at least 285 cameras to allow seamless real-time monitoring of road, traffic and weather conditions and traffic. These will be utilised for observing junctions, structures, urban areas, accident-prone areas, major median openings and major village junctions.

Authorities in the NHAI said another component of the video incident detection system (VIDS) at 60 areas would automatically identify abnormal conditions, incidents, accidents, wrong direction driving, stopped vehicles, poor visibility and also vehicle details. These will be set up at black spots, accident-prone and other essential locations identified by the enforcement agencies.

The information of incidents will be automatically put in the system for quick action. Likewise, the vehicle speed detection system (VSDS) with automatic traffic counter and classifier and the travel time measurement system established at two areas will identify the speeding vehicles and read their number plates automatically, and additionally to pass on the information of defaulters and errant drivers to the officials concerned for enforcement and e-challan.

Officials told the media that this stretch has been chosen for the first such project as it is one of the busiest national highways in the nation and links a significant tourist destination. The extent will also receive at least 22 variable message sign display facilities to alert commuters about road and traffic conditions. In case of incidents such as congestion, the displayed information will assist drivers in deciding whether to take a detour or not, an official told the media.
