Honeywell has successfully completed a city-wide installation of surveillance and emergency response technology in Ujjain to support the Madhya Pradesh Police Department’s work in crime prevention, and traffic and crowd management in the recently concluded the Simhastha Kumbh.
The fair attracted approximately 70 million devotees this year, challenging the city’s resources to effectively maintain safety and security.
The project covered all major checking bays connected to the city with integrated closed-circuit televisions (CCTVs) and automatic number plate reading cameras (ANPR) using a command and control center, which integrates the emergency response and traffic management systems for the Madhya Pradesh Police Department.
As part of the project, 667 video cameras were installed for the Simhastha Kumbh event at the Mahakaal Temple, and at 134 locations around the city.
The networking partner for Madhya Pradesh city surveillance project, Cisco helped Honeywell manage and process huge volumes of video data on its platform.
“This project is an example of our long-standing commitment to making cities smarter, safer, and more secure, in-line with India’s 100 Smart Cities vision. We have already carried out successful city surveillance projects including in Bhubaneshwar in Odisha, Aurangabad in Maharashtra, an 11-city project in a large central state, and will continue to focus on this area,” said Priyanshu Singh, general manager of Honeywell Building Solutions in India.
