KYR: Know Your Road

H.E. Consul General of Germany in Kolkata Mr Olaf Iversen
at Hidco
Officers of Bosch flew in to Kolkata from Bangalore last Wednesday and came in to Hidco Bhavan along with His Excellency Mr Olaf Iversen, Consul General of Germany in Kolkata and handed over the final project report of "Know Your Road". This KYR is a special application developed by Bosch for Hidco. This was based on an MoU signed between Hidco and Bosch during BGBS 2015. In KYR, Bosch has developed a crowd-sourced, Android-based application than monitors the inputs from multiple passengers in vehicles of New Town to gauge the traffic speed and road conditions of New Town. In a user-friendly graphic, the administrators at traffic police or at engineering wing of Hidco, the road conditions would be known from analysis of different inputs coming in from all who are in vehicles and who have the KYR apps in their mobiles.

After successful testing and completion of this pilot scheme, they will give a roll-out proposal soon, with a few modifications that we discussed.
