Jenoptik has received an order from its local partner First Joint Group, for two non-invasive point-to-point (P2P) systems for section speed control on the Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed Bridge, Kuwait. The project aims to increase traffic safety and will also include several TraffiStar S390 speed measuring devices based on radar technology housed in TraffiTower. The bridge, as of the end of next year, will link the capital Kuwait City with both the Subbiyah region in the north (Subbiyah Link 36km) and the Doha suburb in the east (Doha Link 12km).
The section speed control measurement starts when a vehicle enters the relevant section cameras reading the vehicle’s license plate at both the entry and exit point. If its average speed over the section exceeds the maximum permitted speed, the TraffiSection system automatically records all data relevant for prosecuting the violation. It is further able to classify vehicles.
Jenoptik will present its solutions for more traffic safety at Gulf Traffic 2017.
