In pedestrian mode, the user needs to hold down the shutter button, which will produce a continuous series of photographs until the incident is over. The user chooses one of four offense categories (traffic violation, road bullying, accident, road hazard) and the images are uploaded onto Nirsham’s servers, where they are analyzed for authenticity (to prevent the possibility of an individual uploading a doctored image to “get back” at someone they don’t like, said Goldman). The images are then displayed on the Nirsham site, where other members of the community can analyze them and decide whether or not a traffic offense was committed.”
