Traffic police cars could get smarter – resulting in more prosecutions – thanks to a product being exhibited at Intertraffic for the first time.
Israel’s RoadMetric is showing off Enforcement Deputy at Intertraffic 2016, a product it claims can change the “entire economics” of traffic enforcement.
Enforcement Deputy is an in-car video system for police patrols, combining continuous HD recording in four directions, automated licence plate reading ALPR capability and streaming video.
Claiming the system as a “game-changer”, RoadMetric says that Enforcement Deputy allows one police patrol to catch as many as ten violations per hour rather than the average 1.2 violations using current methods.
RoadMetric is also showing off its fully-automated bus-lane enforcement system. The system is based on cameras installed on buses that automatically detect vehicles interfering with the free-flow of bus traffic. The system automatically identifies licence plates and ignores vehicles allowed in the bus lane. It enables comprehensive policing of the entire bus lane with no need for investment in new infrastructure and it requires no involvement from the bus driver.
