Jenoptik red light enforcement gets green light

21/04/2021

Jenoptik Traffic Solutions UK has received Home Office Type Approval for a new red light enforcement system that uses a stand-alone camera to spot violations at signal-controlled junctions.

The firm said that unlike other devices on the market, its VECTOR SR Red Light operates in a ‘non-invasive’ way, removing the need for loops or strips in the junction’s road surface.

The camera monitors the signal heads, meaning there is no need to physically connect the traffic lights with the enforcement system.

Jenoptik said this is the only solution of this type to have gained approval and works equally well with all signal head types, whether they utilise traditional incandescent or modern LED bulbs.

The newly-approved red light device uses the same VECTOR2 ANPR camera platform and Jenoptik’s own 3D tracking radar.

The firm described both items as lightweight and capable of being mounted on a passively-safe pole or existing street furniture, adding that because they work independently of the signals and road surface they are simple to install and cost-effective to maintain.

The system can operate alongside Jenoptik’s patented VECTOR IR Infra-Red illumination module, which means images can be captured on a fully dark road without any distracting flashes or dazzling pools of light.

Geoff Collins, Jenoptik’s deputy managing director, said: ‘This is the product our customers have been waiting for – a modern, digital and non-invasive Red Light enforcement system. We can now offer fair and accurate red light, spot speed and average speed solutions using a common core of known, reliable components, providing responsible drivers a safer journey.

‘Supported by Infra-Red illumination, lightweight enough to mount on a passively safe pole or existing street furniture and with no need for in-road sensors or signal head connections, VECTOR SR represents a step forward in Red Light enforcement technology.’
