The expo was an impressive showcase of boundary-pushing ideas and innovations. Over 20 new launches and innovations were introduced at the Expo. Participants were also treated to live product demonstrations at the stalls, many of which were disruptive to the status quo.
Whether it was crafting new solutions for emerging use cases or building upon existing solutions to address different challenges, each of the exhibitors shared exciting plans that they are developing currently and for the future. Sajan S, Vice President-Innovation & Strategy (Global), Norden Communication, expressed great interest in the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI), stating that in India, AI would provide the kind of customisation required for such a diverse country, providing the uniformity and organisation that is needed for efficient traffic management.
Hikvision India launched its Latest Multilane ANPR Cameras and Radar Assisted ANPR Cameras at the Expo. The key highlights were the latest Transportation Security Systems and Intelligent Traffic Management solutions, including multilane 3D Radar with detection range up to 150 meters.
“The Indian security industry is continuously shifting, adapting, and developing in spite of all the odds and disruptions. Several trends have even accelerated the growth of the security market. Beyond the realm of traditional physical security, a host of technology trends like AI, cloud computing, IoT, and cyber security are being rapidly pioneered and adapted by the big and small entities in the physical security industry,” stated Ashish P Dhakan, MD & CEO, Prama Hikvision India Pvt Ltd.
Anshuman Singh, MD, Superwave Communication, discussed a new solution that Superwave had deployed, surrounding the safe commuting of vehicles on highways, and the detection of the incidents/accidents that have taken place. He shared how this solution has been deployed (in accordance with the latest guidelines) on the 340.8 kilometre long, 6-lane wide Purvanchal Expressway in Uttar Pradesh.
The high rate of fatalities in India from road accidents has prompted Superwave to create an AI-based solution that will detect accidents or incidents in the periphery of 1 kilometre. This will then raise an alert at the control centre, which will speed up rescue and emergency responses. The future plans are centred around automation that requires none or minimal manual intervention.
