Silvia Vilanova with the Birdwatch Red Ligh enforcement camera system.
Quercus is exhibiting for the first time at this show a new crosswalk protection feature which it has added to its Birdwatch Red Light enforcement camera system. The product will actually hit the market in November.
The addition addresses a particular problem in countries such as Brazil, says the company’s Silvia Vilanova: “There, the authorities face a particular problem with drivers who attempt to beat red lights, fail and then block crosswalks. Our technology allows generation of citations for both the red light and blocking offences. The new product is a nominee for the Innovation Award at the Transpoquip show in Sao Paulo.”
Another innovation is offering customers the ability to test online Quercus’s powerful Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) engine.
“We get a lot of requests to demonstrate our ANPR engine’s capabilities, so what we’ve done is make it possible, with a log-on and appropriate permissions, for customers to do it on the Web,” Vilanova continues.
“Customers can use their own images and see the test results for themselves. The new feature adds significant value to an already popular product.”
