Uttar Pradesh: UPSRTC live tests new device in buses in Varanasi | Varanasi News – Times of India

LUCKNOW: UPSRTC has started live testing of camera-based people head counting devices, a new device, in the buses plying in Varanasi region.
Minister of state for transport (independent charge) Dayashanker Singh said that a report will be sought on the performance of the device after a month. If found satisfactory, it will be installed in the entire fleet, he said.
The device will capture the photograph of every passenger who boards or deboards the bus on live basis and send the information to the control room. This will help check loss of revenue also as there will be real time data available on the number of passengers travelling into a bus.
The device will also monitor the behaviour of the driver and conductor inside the bus and generate an alarm when the driver is caught dozing off or talking on phone.
