Ricardo Anton, director of the National Traffic Agency (NTA), said the cameras’ aim was to detect the concentration of traffic in a sector in order to facilitate the movement.
In the coming days a software that allows cameras to control violations committed by drivers and pedestrians on roads will be installed.
The cameras are attached to lights, which rely on a controller (device to program the traffic lights) that will be connected to the central traffic lights that operate in the CTE, where there will be displays, computers and all equipment necessary to program.
The images and data captured by the cameras will immediately travel via fiber optic cable to the computera in the central, said Jaime Velasquez, executive director of the CTE.
Although the software is not designed to detect violations, Velasquez did not rule out the possibility of them doing that as well. Cameras are expected to become active between June and August.
