Economy

Tokyo, May 8 (Jiji Press)--NEC Corp. <6701> said Wednesday that its Indian unit has concluded a contract with the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority to install the major Japanese electronics firm's smart traffic surveillance and management systems in New Delhi's satellite cities.

Under the deal, whose value was not disclosed, NEC Technologies India Pte. Ltd. will set up some 1,200 high-definition closed-circuit television cameras at over 200 traffic junctions in Gurugram and Manesar.

The cameras will send video feeds to monitoring centers around the clock for artificial intelligence-based analysis of number plates to identify traffic offenders.

NEC will also supply cameras with face-recognition software to help police detect specific individuals including those making suspicious moves.

The systems will become functional in stages by the end of the year.
