The Jammu and Kashmir Police have introduced an AI-based face recognition system near a tunnel on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway in Ramban district, officials announced on Friday.

Equipped with high-focus CCTV cameras, the system, reportedly, utilizes a database containing images of militants, overground workers, and criminals. When vehicles pass through the area, the cameras screen the faces of individuals inside, triggering an alert to police if a match is found with any photograph in the database.

Developed by a Chennai-based company, this technology was initially deployed in Kishtwar district’s Thathri area in December. Now, the Navayuga checking plaza in Ramban district’s Banihal region becomes the second location, after Kishtwar, to implement the system.

Notably, this AI-based face recognition system possess the capability to match photographs even if individuals are wearing masks, enhancing their effectiveness in identifying potential threats.
