University of Douala: Students develop application to track undisciplined drivers on the road

Cameroonian students from the School of industrial engineering at the University of Douala, in the economic capital of the country, have just created an application which can track undisciplined drivers on the road, particularly those who do not respect the traffic lights.

 

Called “Man no run”, colloquial expression in the local slang which means “nobody can escape”, this application enables its user, through a camera and sensor, to film the licence plates of the vehicles running red lights, we learned. In practical terms, explains Romaric Saounde, one of the sponsors of the project, “when the traffic light is red, the system lies in wait for an offence. When the first vehicle crosses the first radar, it is filmed. Which means that the offence is registered, even if the system continues to wait. If the vehicle continues without stopping and crosses the second radar, the offence is confirmed and a second photo is taken. It is this second picture which is used to identify the licence number of the offending vehicle and its owner”.
