AI-powered system to improve traffic in the Philippines

A group of researchers from the De La Salle University (DLSU) developed software that would help authorities to quickly and more efficiently identify traffic violators.

What can the system do?

According to a recent press release, CATCH-ALL or the Contactless Apprehension of Traffic Violators on a 24-Hour Basis and All-Vehicle Detection System is capable of detecting and tracking vehicles.

Additionally, the system can also recognise plate number and profile vehicles. The system is smart as it is able to detect several breaches such as number coding violations, beating the red light, and even swerving.

The University Professor, who is also project leader, explained that CATCH-ALL is an automated system able to catch violators without the need for contact, on a real time basis with the use of cameras that are installed on the streets.

The closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras installed are equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) software for real time monitoring of traffic situations.

Reportedly, data gathered by the cameras are transmitted to a video analysis system via a road-side unit (RSU).

This data is stored in servers that are configured as shared storages or hard drives.

There are two units for the power supply, the main UPS, and an extra battery with a Tesla computing processor and 40 terabytes of storage data.

Benefits of the system

Data analytics from the CATCH-ALL system are then used to analyse traffic patterns in specific routes.

The information can be used as a guide in decision making by traffic law enforcement agencies and other stakeholders involved.

The ultimate goal is to allow CATCH-ALL to be tied up with the database of the Land Transportation Office (LTO).

Utilising this software will allow them to finally come-up with a no-contact apprehension and penalty sanctions to the violators.

The system will instil discipline on drivers to follow traffic rules and regulations. In addition, unnecessary solicitation from abusive officials can also be prevented.

The Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD) funded the research and development of the project with a grant worth PHP 3.5 million (US$ 68,563.25).

The CATCH-ALL and many other new technologies will be on highlight during the celebration of the 2019 National Science and Technology Week (NSTW) that will run 17-21 July 2019 at the World Trade Centre in Pasay City.

This year’s theme “Enabling Technologies for Sustainable Development” underscores the role of science and technology in achieving the country’s commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Exhibits, forums, and other activities in this year’s NSTW will focus on the local science community’s efforts and initiatives to address the SDGs.

Sustainable Development Goals

The SDGs serve as blueprint in achieving a better and more sustainable future for all nations.

SDGs address global challenges such as poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The SDGs are interrelated and are aimed to be achieved by year 2030.
