AVERAGE SPEED ENFORCEMENT

Product description

The average speed enforcement system measures the speed of every passing vehicle in a monitored section of the road. It intelligently applies the lane characteristics, dynamic speeds limits displayed to motorists and the vehicle class to verify whether the average speed of the vehicles are within allowed limits. It plugs the gap left by spot speed systems leading to a precarious tendency from motorists to rapidly slow down and then accelerate at speed measuring points to avoid potential penalization.

The main purposes of the Average Speed Enforcement system are improving traffic safety, reducing environmental impact and bettering traffic flow. The system is highly accurate and reliable to attain a  positive review by the public.

The system uses image processing and optional sensor integration to capture maximum speed offenders based on their average speed over an entire road section. Systems of ARS T&TT use non-invasive video detection and classification technology. Roadside systems have integrated GPS sensors for accurate timers and for speedy road network configuration during installation or maintenance.

A back-office system is available with operator power tools for verifying violation processing, quality augmentation with redundant data-processing algorithms, archival of Judicial evidence in a tamper-proof manner, automatic dispatch of violation records to authorities for further processing and monitoring the system operations.

Benefits

Better operational solution

Speed enforcement for sections is a more robust solution than spot-speed measurement systems. The fool-proof approach discourages motorists with the tendency to speed to avoid it.

REDUCES SPEED TO IMPROVE FLOW

The system effectively reduces speed on entire road sections by means of its implementation. In turn, adherence to optimal speeds prescribed for the road sections contributes significantly to the overall traffic flow.

REDUCES ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Since vehicle emissions significantly increase after the engine RPM threshold, speeding has adverse effects on carbon emissions. The system reduces environmental impact by means of reducing the emission caused at higher speeds. Despite the share of electric and hybrid vehicles in the overall vehicle population, the factor is still rated to be significant.

DECREASE OF OFFENCES AND INCIDENTS DUE TO SPEEDING

It was assessed from operational environments that in major part of the road incidents, speeding behavior of motorists have a significant hand. The system decreases the incidence of offences considerably: from 20% to 1% that in turn reduces road incidents.

24/7 OPERATION

Invisible infrared illumination allows for 24/7 operation. Despite the loss of color components with infrared illumination, clear and discernible visual evidence is generated by the system.

Use case: Highways in the Netherlands

We succesfully implemented 5 Average Speed Enforcement systems on the A2, A10, A12 and A20 highways in the Netherlands. Over the past years, these systems have significantly reduced the number of accidents on these roads, as well as the environmental impact caused by speeding vehicles.
