The Lagos State Governor, Mr Jidesanwoolu, has launched the lagostraffic961 ‘Live Camera Update’ Project at the station’s premises, Radio House, Lateef Jakande Road, Agidingbi, Ikeja.
The ‘Live Camera Update’ will cover over 300 roads and highways in the state (in the first instance and up to 3000 later) and will also help in capturing happenings in Lagos which is in line with the Lagos Smart City project.
This project is aimed at delivering timely, accurate, detailed and above all real-time traffic information to the motoring public and commuters within and outside the State.
The Governor was represented by the Commissioner for Transportation, Oluwaseun Osiyemi.
How Will This Work?
Traffic surveillance cameras work by using a combination of image capture and video recording technologies.
These cameras are strategically placed at various locations on roads and highways to monitor and record traffic conditions in real-time.
Image capture technology involves the use of high-resolution cameras that capture still images of the traffic scene.
These cameras are equipped with lenses that can zoom in and out to capture clear images of vehicles, license plates, and other relevant details.
The cameras are often equipped with infrared sensors to ensure visibility in low-light conditions.
Video recording technology is also employed to capture continuous footage of the traffic flow.
This involves the use of cameras that record video at a specific frame rate, typically 30 frames per second.
The recorded video can be stored locally on the camera or transmitted to a central monitoring station for further analysis.
In recent years, there have been advancements in traffic surveillance camera technology.
For example, some cameras now have built-in artificial intelligence capabilities that can automatically detect and track vehicles, pedestrians, and other objects of interest.
This allows for more efficient monitoring and analysis of traffic patterns.
Furthermore, some cameras are equipped with advanced analytics software that can detect and alert authorities to specific events, such as accidents, traffic congestion, or suspicious activities.
This helps in improving response times and overall traffic management.
Overall, traffic surveillance cameras play a crucial role in monitoring and managing traffic conditions.
They provide valuable data for traffic engineers, law enforcement agencies, and city planners to make informed decisions and improve the efficiency and safety of road networks.

Lagos Smart City
The Smart City project is led by Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, assisted by several individuals and organizations in both the public and private sectors.
The government has assigned a budget of 250 million nairas (around $640,000) toward research on tech infrastructure in Lagos.
This will be under the management of the Lagos State Science, Research and Innovation Council, which will invest in fields such as AI, robotics, biomedical informatics and sustainable energy.
The Smart City project aims for multi-level integration, with the government providing funds and direction for the private sector.
This strategy aims to improve tech infrastructure in Lagos and increase the city’s productivity.
