Cohort plc company SEA has been awarded orders by Transport for London (TfL) to further develop and provide ongoing support of its Digital Traffic Enforcement System (DTES) and to develop and support a Parking Enforcement Solution (PES) Mobile Application.
The combined contracts are worth in excess of £6.5m and include ten years of support for both systems.
SEA originally developed the fixed camera DTES system, including software development and hardware provision, before it entered service with TfL in 2009. More than 800 cameras are employed for civil traffic enforcement purposes on the TfL road network aiming help minimise journey times and aid traffic flow, capturing incidents including bus lane, yellow box junction and banned manoeuvre contraventions.
PES is a brand new development to replace an end of life on-street enforcement system based on older feature phone technology.
PES is an on-street enforcement system which is smart-phone enabled, and designed to be used by a diverse range of users who are out and about on the street. SEA is partnered in its provision with Mubaloo, an award winning mobile developer with seven years of experience developing over 250 bespoke apps for all platforms.
SEA will develop the PES backend systems and web interface which will integrate fully with the on-street app. It says by bringing together SEA’s wide ranging experience in the traffic enforcement domain with Mubaloo’s ability to create innovative and productive mobile apps, the end to end system will enable TfL’s ongoing on-street enforcement operations to remain effective and efficient.
SEA Managing Director Steve Hill said, “I am delighted that SEA continues to be involved in this important TfL programme. The addition of the PES system to work with DTES is an exciting development.”
He added: “Efficiency is a key factor in the on-going development of our systems, with software that is intuitive to use and key parts automated to provide an efficient workflow and reduce incident review time.”
