India Embraces Facial Recognition for Smart City, Railways

• activistpost.com, By Beverly Crawford Westre

NEC India will spearhead the implementation of information and communications technology (ICT) including facial recognition throughout the city, including establishing a City Operations Center (COC) in Tirupati, according to a company announcement. The ICT systems, which include integrated services and a unified command and control center, will facilitate real-time data collection and analysis and improve two-way communications. This digitalization effort will help to provide more efficient responses to issues related to safety, security, healthcare and environmental concerns, the company says. Furthermore, a city network infrastructure and on-premises data center will provide a data-backed decision-making process for the city.

On the traffic front, NEC India is also introducing an intelligent traffic-management system. This system seeks to streamline traffic flow, including during rush hours, and reduce traffic accidents.
