VIDEO: Drones Deployed on Mumbai-Pune Expressway to Monitor Traffic

A pilot project launched by the Government of Maharashtra had overhead drones monitor traffic on the Mumbai-Pune expressway. The project proved beneficial to the short-staffed police force.

Cameras attached to drones recorded incidents of rash driving, lane cutting and general rule-breaking, overcoming some of the limitations of CCTV cameras. They also captured a larger range of incidents on the Mumbai-Pune expressway that is often labelled a ‘death trap.’

While the project was successful, the implementation of drone-policing is still in the talks.
