WHY TECHNOLOGY IS NEEDED TO REDUCE ROAD ACCIDENTS?
To understand how dangerous our Indian roads are, you only need to look at the following stats:
- World Bank Report in 2020 – India accounts for 11% of global road crash victims with only 1 per cent of the world’s vehicles
- Union Road Transport and Highways Minister NitinGadkari in 2020 acknowledged,” It is a sordid state of affairs that Indian roads witnessed 415 deaths per day in road accidents, the highest in the world, and losses amount to 3.14% of GDP”. This equates to 1 person dying every 4 minutes on our roads.
- Total road deaths in 2019 was 1.51 lakhs (this was higher than the COVID deaths seen in 2020 which amount to 1.49 lakhs)
With such high numbers, we need to find innovative ways to make our roads safer. SAFE CAMS has developed Driver State Monitors (DSM) and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) to help reduce accidents. DSM cameras use advanced AI algorithms to monitor a driver’s face and gestures to ensure that the driver is not falling asleep, smoking, using a mobile phone or being distracted from looking at the road ahead. As nearly 40% of accidents are caused due to drowsy driving, this invention can prevent a lot of road deaths.
ADAS forward collision warning systems will alert the driver of an impending collision with a slower moving or stationary car in front of the driver. With cameras and AI becoming more advanced, they will help warn drivers of situations in advance and prevent accidents as these camera systems never sleep or get distracted.
