First Published: 24th May, 2024 19:36 IST

The implementation of the AI-based traffic management system aims at modernizing traffic management throughout the state.

In a major development in the Himalayan state of Sikkim, the Transport Department has announced the implementation of an innovative “Artificial Intelligence Driven Traffic Management System” from May 25.

The implementation of the AI-based traffic management system aims at modernizing traffic management throughout the state.

The competent authority within the Transport Department has approved this decision, demonstrating a major improvement in the state’s approach to traffic management.

This technology, which uses powerful AI algorithms, is intended to revolutionize traffic regulation, monitoring and enforcement, as well as the verification of important papers such as insurance, tax, fitness, pollution under control (PUC), and permits , ensuring that all vehicles on the road comply with the regulations outlined in the Central Motor Vehicles Act of 1980.

The core functionality of the AI-driven system revolves around its ability to automatically detect various traffic violations including speeding, signal violations, and improper lane usage.

In light of this development, the Transport Department has issued a public notification to all vehicle owners, including government vehicles, underlining the necessity of maintaining current vehicle documentation. To eliminate any disparities in the granting of e-challans, all people must comply with this condition.

As per reports, any anomalies or issues about the issuance of e-challans should be reported immediately to the respective Superintendent of Police (SP) or Regional Transport Office (RTO) within the relevant district.

The implementation of the AI-driven Traffic Management System represents a significant step forward in Sikkim’s transportation infrastructure modernization initiatives. With its extensive features, the system aims to improve road safety, streamline enforcement operations, and ensure regulatory compliance.
