The captain said this was how the foremost lockdown violation prone areas were brought into control.

The cameras are installed in the limits of Hyderabad, Cyberabad and Rachakonda police commissionerates, which cover Greater Hyderabad.

This Artificial Intelligence-based control technology has been developed by L&T Smart World & Communication, a business unit of Larsen & Toubro (L&T). The cameras are enabled with deep learning-based crowd formation analytics triggering real-time alerts at the police command centre. Once the command centre receives alerts about gathering of 5 or more persons in a locality, the field officers swing into action to disperse the group.

Police in Hyderabad has also deployed another AI-based technology developed by L&T to trace vehicle movement. the town administration issued an order asking people to not drive beyond three-km from their residences even for purchasing essential goods.

Using existing Machine Learning based Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system vehicle locations are monitored continuously. the instant a vehicle crosses the three-km limit; an automatic alert is sent out to the police. Additionally through the mixing of Regional Transport Authority's database vehicle owners are identified aiding officials to issue a warning.

L&T Smart World & Communication rolled outsmart technology solutions to combat COVID-19 in over 20 cities across India.
