Jenoptik helps increase road safety and security in North America with new traffic camera systems
Jenoptik, a world-leading supplier of road safety and public security solutions, has secured traffic safety equipment orders totaling over 21 million US dollars in the US and Canada that help support Vision Zero initiatives.
Vision Zero is a multi-national road traffic safety project that aims to achieve a highway system with no fatalities or serious injuries involving road traffic.
“Jenoptik is committed to helping improve the safety and security in communities and our VECTOR solutions represent a step forward to safer cities with our traffic enforcement technology,” said Dr. Stefan Traeger, Jenoptik President & CEO.
The orders will consist of existing TraffiStar road safety equipment and Jenoptik’s latest release of the VECTOR camera platform incorporating the company’s high accuracy Deep Learning ALPR software in conjunction with Jenoptik’s own 3D tracking radar module.
The new VECTOR camera platform was developed as a complementary enforcement device for the measurement of instantaneous speed detection and combined high performance ALPR (or ANPR, automatic license/number plate recognition). In locations where vehicle speeds need to be managed over short distances, VECTOR provides a practical and cost effective solution, allowing those responsible for road safety to address collision hot spots.
