VITRONIC at Gulf Traffic 2011: Increased road traffic safety with LIDAR speed enforcement

VITRONIC at Gulf Traffic 2011: Increased road traffic safety

Wiesbaden, Germany / Dubai. Superior enforcement technology significantly contributes to more safety in road traffic. At this year’s Gulf Traffic from 12 to 14 December 2011 in Dubai the VITRONIC Group presents its latest generation of laser based traffic enforcement systems at booth 3F30: PoliScanspeed for fixed and mobile speed enforcement and PoliScanredlight for non-invasive control of red light offenses.

PoliScanspeed is a LIDAR speed enforcement solution that is in use in many countries worldwide, among these numerous countries in the Middle East region. Successful speed enforcement with VITRONIC technology is conducted in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE. Altogether more than 220 PoliScanspeed systems are currently operating in the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Most prominent users are the Dubai Police, the Abu Dhabi Police and Saudi Aramco.

VITRONIC among nominees for Gulf Traffic Award

PoliScanspeed reaches highest enforcement rates and delivers unmatched numbers of cases per time. The system can operate even in challenging road traffic situations such as busy multi-lane roads, curves or road work areas. In-road equipment is not needed. Statistics prove that PoliScanspeed significantly reduces the number of traffic deaths and injuries and leads to an improvement in driver behavior. In Dubai, for example, the number of road deaths has dropped from 115 in the first eight months of 2010 to 84 in the same period this year, a decline of 27 percent. The advanced PoliScanspeed laser technology is one of the key factors which contributed to the reduction of fatal accidents in Dubai. This significantly supports the Dubai Police’s efforts in making the Emirate’s roads safer. VITRONIC is therefore among the nominees for the Gulf Traffic Award in the category “Changing Driver Behavior”.

Non-invasive laser-based red light enforcement

PoliScanredlight is one of the leading and most innovative solutions for non-invasive red light enforcement on a global scale. When traffic lights change to red, PoliScanredlight automatically monitors the stop lines of the intersection with an invisible laser scanner. Whenever a violation occurs, PoliScanredlight takes two pictures of the offense: The first as soon as the vehicle crosses the stop line, the second one in the intersection. The system can be combined with speed enforcement to PoliScanred+speed. Whether speed or red light enforcement, both systems capture vehicles even if they tailgate or change lanes. The combined red light and speed enforcement system allows permanent speed control in every traffic light phase. VITRONIC’s red light enforcement system has received type approval from the Federal German state
authority PTB, guarantor of quality.

License plate reading with color recognition and classification

Moreover, at Gulf Traffic VITRONIC will present PoliScansurveillance as a high-end solution for automated license plate recognition (ALPR). Even at high speeds this solution offers maximum read rates. On top of its ALPR functionality PoliScansurveillance is capable of identifying colors on license plates and of classifying vehicles.
