Escalate-able speed safety solutions showcased by Truvelo (UK) at Traffex 2023

Speed enforcement and compliance specialist offers a more nuanced approach to compliance

The evolutions currently taking place in speed enforcement and compliance are reflected by Truvelo (UK) on Stand XXX at this year’s Traffex.

The event, which takes place over 6-8 June at NEC Birmingham, will see the company showcase Speed Information Displays (SIDs), Automated Community Speed Watch (ACSW), ANPR-Lite, and the Violation Management System (VMS) electronic back office.

Truvelo’s radar-triggered SIDs, which provide motorists with an external reminder of their real speeds, have a proven record of encouraging greater compliance with posted limits. Already in daily use at many locations around the UK, SIDs do not need UK Home Office Type Approval and deployment/re-deployment between sites is fast and simple.

ACSW, which is already in operational use, adds another intermediate step between SIDs and full enforcement and enables local/roads authorities and the police to implement solutions which can be escalated in line with numbers and severities of offences. It replaces roadside Community Speed Watch volunteers with an automated camera and provides a more enduring presence.

As well as increasing safety by removing the need for roadside operatives, ACSW removes the subjectivity and fallibility of involving humans in the monitoring process. Using Truvelo’s radar-activated, bi-directional VIA-Cam, it can monitor traffic in both directions, in all light conditions across a wide temperature range (-15 to +50C), and measures all vehicle speeds above 5mph.

ANPR-Lite is a new solution. It utilises Truvelo’s Mobile Docker, which combines computing power, a router, GPS and a SIM card in a single, sturdy extruded aluminium case that can be hard-wired into a vehicle or used from the desktop.

The Mobile Docker is technology-agnostic and can work with any ANPR camera. It enables Truvelo’s Type-Approved LaserCaM 4 handheld camera to be used in combination to capture time-stamped and legally viable images of both front and rear licence plates.

By doing so, it provides a solution to previously un-enforceable speeding by motorcyclists and a more robust solution for certain night-time conditions.

The VMS enables Truvelo to be a complete end-to-end solutions and services provider. This state-of-the-art electronic back office can process all types of enforceable driving and parking offences.

The VMS is technology-agnostic. It can be supplied as an internal private cloud version which will operate on servers behind customers’ own firewalls, or as Software as a Service direct from Truvelo using any cloud-based environment, including police service-approved Microsoft Azure. The ability to communicate with any other third-party back office system guarantees interoperability with and a migration path from solutions already in use.

“The speed enforcement and compliance sector is evolving rapidly. Safety professionals are looking for a range of solutions that can be escalated in line with actual requirements, rather than just blunt instruments which can damage public support,” says Calvin Hutt, Truvelo (UK)’s Sales and Marketing Director.

“They are also looking for more deployment options, with a big emphasis on mobile technology in order to bring greater levels of unpredictability and effectiveness to enforcement regimes.

“From SIDs via ACSW to Type-Approved fixed and mobile enforcement solutions, we provide the widest range of front-end solutions. These, combined with the VMS in the background, enable us to provide a full violation-management solution.

“We look forward to being at Traffex again this year and to discussing visitors’ many different enforcement and compliance needs.”
