To achieve higher quality of life and economic development, technology is key. With the right technology, public authorities are enabled to educate drivers and ensure a reduction in road accidents. A reliable and accurate technology is needed. In some regions it is still common that police officers need to be on site with a system to enforce misbehavior. Manual speed monitoring, however, requires a lot of manpower, which leads to high costs and makes 24/7 monitoring impossible.
But without monitoring, nothing will change in the behavior of drivers. Speed limits are important, but without enforcement, they are often useless. What is important here is that the enforcement is accepted by the drivers. The technology used for monitoring must be reliable and fair.
Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) is an alternative to Radar cameras to capture a precise traffic situation. The systems send out laser beams with a distance of 75 meters and follow detected vehicles of every type. In the range between 50 and 20 meters, the average speed of each vehicle is determined with the help of the laser beams ("laser time-of-flight measurement"). With the laser beams it can classify the size of vehicles and combine this with the average speed. If there is an offense, only the vehicle that is speeding is photographed. It doesn't matter whether there is heavy traffic, vehicles driving close behind or next to each other, or vehicles changing lanes. Each vehicle is tracked and the violation is clearly documented. This creates tamper-proof digital case data that guarantees absolute legal certainty.
