The Integrated Road Accident Database (iRAD) Project is an initiative of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH), Government of India and is funded by the World Bank, to improve road safety in the country. The aim of the project is ‘Safe Road for All’. National Informatics Centre (NIC) is implementing the project for the MoRTH, GoI.
The app will enable the stakeholders such as the Police, Regional Transport Office (RTO), Health, National Highways and State Roads to use their mobile phones to collect accident data on the spot. The project is proposed on an IT-based system for capturing on the spot accident data using mobile apps and tablets configured for this purpose. NIC at State/Districts are assisting the UT Administration and the District Administrations for conducting training on the use of iRAD Mobile App and Web applications to ease the data collection and its analysis regarding the cause of accidents.
The collected data can then be utilized for various purposes like finding the cause of the accident and remedial measures to improve the road infrastructure and to record the accident data for the use of police, health services and other concerned departments.
