Odisha Police has tapped Honeywell for a surveillance system to enhance security, prevent crimes, maintain law and order, and control traffic in the state’s capital city.
The Honeywell project provides 114 closed-circuit televisions and automatic number plate reading cameras in 28 strategic locations in the city.
A command and control system provides a common operating picture, interactive control, event correlation, and mobile van surveillance in the Police Commission headquarters.
“At Honeywell, our focus is on making cities smarter, safer, and more secure, in support of India’s 100 Smart City vision. Bhubaneshwar has been recognized by Smart City Expo World Congress for its tremendous efforts,” said Aseem Joshi, regional general manager of Honeywell Building Solutions in India.
Honeywell has installed mobile cameras and digital video recorders on 33 police vans for better situational awareness. Mobile cameras, which transmit recordings at a pre-determined frequency to the command centers, are designed to withstand high day-time temperatures. Red-light violation detection systems and advanced video analytics help alert police about traffic violations and enable prompt incident management.
Honeywell is working on projects in Aurangabad in Maharashtra, an 11-city project in Madhya Pradesh, including Ujjain Simhastha Kumbh event.
