The second objective is to contribute to public safety.Providing images to be stored in 70 different locations in the city, and reading license plates in real time via 911, in a work of expression whose mode we are still defining,” he said.
For Giro, it is the manner in which the municipality has to make its contribution in a matter in which it has no capacity: “We can’t take concrete action nor do we have police power, but we can set up the technical infrastructure and make it available to the Ministry of Security and prosecutors, in the same way as the cameras already in the city.” With the system, 150 of which are ours,” he remarked.
According to what was explained by the technical team working on the assembly of the structure in the city, “These are not cameras we knew before: a radar that took a picture of you and nothing else. They are more complex units,
“They will have a camera that will read the license plate at all times and in real time, with the idea that the ministry can receive immediate alerts of a car license plate with an arrest warrant, stolen cars or a vehicle that is part of an investigation. In turn, there will be another camera that will capture obstructions with artificial intelligence: if you step on a bike lane or pass a red light, for example. And there will be one Additional cameras, such as video surveillance, that will record at all times, the idea is that Surveillance 911 . is associated withThat’s what all the municipal chambers see,” he said.
Totems will be at five specific places in Rosario which will identify the vehicles with their respective license plates and immediately inform the motorist about the speed at which they are moving (next to their domain) on a giant screen so that, if it exceeds the permissible speed, They can download it. But they will also be essential in locating the motorcycles or cars under investigation.

Another close up of the equipment’s installation highlighted that “Images of a certain location will be available at a certain time in the prosecutor’s office And you will be able to know if a car has passed a certain place in the past, because everything is registered. They give us a patent, they tell us ‘I want to know where this car went, what was its route’ and we can give a report about the places that particular vehicle passed.
totem, element informative and depressing Since they will not mark violations, they are also intended for locating a motorcycle license plate“Although we know there are many in irregular situations with drivers who pretend they have not been detected”, Giro said.
The totem in question is Parque Independencia (Bulever Orono, direction north-south), La Florida (Avenida Columbus, Parque Alem, south-north), Amphitheater area (Avenida Belgrano 182 bis, direction south-north), Parque Sanchales (Estanislao López 2472, east -West direction, and between Avenida President Perón Circunvalacione and Provincius Unidas, West-East direction.
