is to deliver 10 semi-stationary speed monitoring trailers equipped with the TraffiStar S350 laser scanner to improve traffic safety in Cologne, Germany.
The firm says its product allows users to monitor the speed of multiple vehicles and lanes simultaneously and assign measurement results to all the relevant vehicles using laser technology.
With accumulator batteries, the measurement technology can be used independently of an external power supply for about a week – for instance, at accident black spots or traffic-calmed locations, the company adds.
According to Jenoptik, the semi-stationary trailer is fitted with front and rear cameras to detect speeding offences by motorcycles, while the armour-plated container has a GPS transmitter to locate the trailer and sensors to report vandalism attempts.
The city has tested the trailers over a period of six months and is ready to deploy them in areas near schools, hospitals and retirement homes.
