  • The following is a passive construction: iRIDS was developed by C-DAC to check red light violations. – Jim Reynolds Jan 17 '15 at 8:15

It's a little hard to tell, without knowing the relationship between iRIDS and C-DAC, and given that the sentence - or more likely, sentence fragment - presented looks like it came from a list.

It could be passive-voice, with "was" omitted, or it could be that "developed by C-DAC" is an adjectival phrase, or perhaps something else I haven't thought of.

Do you have a little more context for this?
