Vitronic introduces PoliScanspeed dual-direction camera system

A remote camera system has been introduced by Germany-based company Vitronic, which is designed to augment its PoliScanspeed laser-based speed enforcement device. The new camera allows traffic violations to be photographed and documented from both the front and the rear. The remote camera is connected to the PoliScanspeed system via WLAN and simultaneously captures infringement images. The system consists of a high-resolution camera, flash and function box. It can be tripod-mounted or placed on the ground. In the case of a speed violation, the PoliScanspeed system takes a photo and sends a signal to the remote camera, which then captures a second image. All of the data is subsequently transferred to the operator where the evidence is compiled and encrypted.

The PoliScanspeed system detects, captures and documents speed violations automatically using digital camera technology. At its core is next-generation LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology, which uses time-of-flight (TOF) measurements to calculate vehicle speeds. The system is certified for unattended use and eliminates the need for costly in-road equipment. In addition, it can operate in challenging traffic situations such as bends and through roadworks.

Images of both oncoming and receding vehicles can be captured. This includes motorcycles which can escape detection and image capture using other systems. The remote camera can be positioned to take profile images of cars and trucks, where previously the A-column or a dash-mounted navigation system prevented clear driver identification.
