Project Delivers Real-Time Safe City Monitoring for the Madhya Pradesh Police Department
Honeywell announced that it 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 during the Simhastha Kumbh. The Simhastha Kumbh is among the world’s largest holy gatherings that attracted approximately 70M devotees this year, challenging the city’s resources to effectively maintain safety and security.

Ujjain’s city-wide surveillance 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.

The cameras supporting ANPR technology recognized the number plates of suspicious vehicles against the police department’s pre-loaded data in the system and helped in counting vehicles from various checking bays. Facial recognition cameras facilitated identification of people on the police department’s alert list against their pre-loaded images in the system.

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 project covered traffic and crowd management at checking bays, ghats, temples, and ashrams. During the event, the system gathered real-time data to help authorities react to any incident and monitor areas for disturbances. Cisco, the networking partner for Madhya Pradesh city surveillance project, helped Honeywell manage and process huge volumes of video data on its platform.

The Madhya Pradesh police department has formally acknowledged Honeywell’s contribution in the city-wide installation of surveillance and emergency response technology helping with crime prevention and traffic and crowd management. Senior members of the police department appreciated Honeywell’s range of solutions, proven track record, and global leadership in safety and security, making it the ideal partner for the project.
