Jenoptik Traffic Solutions UK has announced that its VECTOR SR enforcement camera has achieved HOTA, passing the rigorous evaluation and testing required to allow it to be operated as an unattended enforcement device for the measurement of 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 explains that VECTOR SR uses the highly capable VECTOR2 integrated ANPR camera platform, working alongside Jenoptik’s own 3D tracking radar device. Both of 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, lightweight enough to mount on a passively safe pole or existing street furniture and with no need for in-road sensors, VECTOR SR represents a step forward in speed enforcement technology.
