Bangalore is one of the 8 cities under the Safe City Project under the Union government of India. The Home Ministry has selected Honeywell Automation India to lead the Bengaluru Safe City project in Karnataka under the Nirbhaya Fund by the government of India.
The project is valued at Rs 496.57 crore (USD 67 million). Now, the company will create an integrated command & control centre to manage a state-of-the-art video system that features more than 7,000 video cameras deployed at more than 3,000 locations across the city.
The video system will provide advanced video analytics, including facial recognition, a Dial 100 application and drones. Honeywell will also upgrade the city police department’s existing Suraksha app to help improve incident response rate and citizen engagement.
The project is likely to be implemented in phases and Honeywell will operate and maintain the security infrastructure for five years.
