Speed camera specialist Truvelo Manufacturers has chosen Intertraffic Amsterdam 2014 to launch the latest D-Cam R speed and red light camera system. The latest member of the D-Cam family, it uses the same technology platform as the existing D-Cam P and the D-Cam L and continues that pedigree.
Indeed, within the last week, Truvelo UK announced that the D-Cam digital speed and red light enforcement camera has now gained UK Home Office Type Approval. The company says that, given the D-Cam P’s unique capabilities, this opens the way for enforcement agencies and local authorities to enjoy effective, more cost-efficient speed and red light enforcement from a single camera.
The D-Cam R is available for permanent site installations or mobile operation on a tripod. A 3D tracking radar is used to track approaching or receding vehicles and provide speed measurements on multi-lane highways. Lane identification is provided on the image to aid back-office offence processing.
Up to 64 vehicles can be tracked at one time and by differentiating between different classes of vehicle, different speed thresholds can be automatically applied. Front or rear photography sites can be installed and red light violations can also be captured. All vehicles passing the camera are tracked and speed-checked thus providing statistical data for the highway authority.
A contract for 60 cameras is currently being completed in Mauritius and Truvelo MD Ralf Gebert sees a bright future. “The D-Cam camera platform is now well-proven, and with the launch of D-Cam R is now available with three different speed measuring technologies.”
