Laser-Based Fixed Speed Enforcement

POLISCAN SPEED is an innovative system for fixed speed enforcement using laser technology (LIDAR). This VITRONIC technology measures the speed of all vehicles within the capture zone – without the need for road-embedded equipment such as loops or piezo sensors. Time-consuming and costly road work and road closures become obsolete.

Stylish and Functional: The City Design Housing

The POLISCAN SPEED speed enforcement system is embedded in a specially designed City Design Housing, providing optimum support for the LIDAR measuring technology. The sleek pillar is based on rotatable individual segments and allows monitoring of inbound and outbound traffic at the same time. The City Design Housing has room for up to two measurement and documentation units including flashes. As a result, POLISCAN SPEED enables traffic monitoring in two travel directions from a single location. Speed enforcement is possible from the median or the shoulder.

Photographic Evidence with Optimum Driver Identification

Every POLISCAN SPEED system is equipped with two high-resolution digital cameras with different focal lengths. In combination with the continuous localization feature of the LIDAR technology, POLISCAN SPEED delivers lane-based focused photographic evidence with optimum number plate and driver identification for every violation, even in heavy traffic or during lane changes. The system automatically places a frame around the number plate, which helps clearly match the speeding violation. POLISCAN SPEED is available with cameras for color or black-and-white pictures.

Digital Incident Data

POLISCAN SPEED collects the photographic evidence together with all the other incident data such as measured speed, time, and location in a digital incident documentation. On-site encryption as well as a proprietary file format offer protection from manipulation and unauthorized access. Case data can either be downloaded locally or transferred via network. POLISCAN SPEED offers flexible support for integration with downstream backoffice incident processing systems. If a network connection is available, the system can also be monitored remotely.

Combination with Red Light Enforcement

POLISCAN SPEED can also be combined with VITRONIC red light enforcement. POLISCAN RED+SPEED combines all the benefits of VITRONIC stationary speed enforcement with advanced red light enforcement.
