Owing to increasing instances of speeding and driving on the wrong side of the Bengaluru-Mysuru access-controlled highway, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has initiated the installation of 60 Artificial Intelligence-powered traffic enforcement cameras at strategic locations along both the Bengaluru-Nidaghatta and Nidaghatta-Mysuru stretches of the highway.

“At regular intervals along the highway, dedicated arches featuring solar-powered panels have been installed to accommodate cameras. Each side of these arches is equipped with five cameras and lane-wise speed limit indicators, enhancing surveillance to detect all kinds of violations on the stretch,” a NHAI official said.

In February, the NHAI approved the deployment of AI-based Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras at six locations on the highway at a cost of ₹3.6 crore. These cameras, installed by Tecsidel India Private Limited, based in Gurugram, Haryana, will implement the Video Incident Detection and Enforcement System (VIDES) on the Bengaluru-Mysuru section of National Highway 275.
