Jenoptik Traffic Solutions UK has announced that its VECTOR SR enforcement camera has achieved Home Office Type Approval, passing the rigorous evaluation and testing required to allow it to be operated as an unattended enforcement device for measuring vehicle speeds.
The company, which is best known in the UK for its SPECS average speed enforcement cameras, which are now used at more than 150 sites across the UK says it developed VECTOR SR solution as a complementary enforcement device for the measurement of ‘spot speeds’.
It says where vehicle speeds need to be managed over a short section of road, VECTOR SR provides a practical and cost effective solution, allowing those responsible for road safety to address collision hot spots, whilst also providing a practical alternative for obsolete ‘wet film’ camera sites.
Jenoptik said that VECTOR SR uses the highly capable VECTOR2 integrated ANPR camera platform, working alongside Jenoptik’s own 3D tracking radar device.
Both these modules are lightweight and low power, allowing VECTOR SR to be mounted on a passively safe pole – something that has not been possible before with older enforcement technologies.
The system can also operate alongside the patented VECTOR IR Infra-Red illumination module, allowing image capture on a fully dark road without any distracting flashes or dazzling puddles of light.
Supported by Infra-Red illumination, the system can also be mounted on existing street furniture and has no need for in-road sensors,
