The system uses two separate cameras located some distance apart and the camera technology can determine if a vehicle has travelled faster than the maximum legal travel time for a specific section of road by reading and matching vehicle number plates at each camera site.
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology is used to match the vehicle registration details. The average speed of a vehicle is calculated by dividing the distance between two camera sites by the time taken for the vehicle to travel between the two sites.
If the average speed of a vehicle exceeds the speed limit for that road section, the offence data are forwarded to the officer’s tablet in the check point for infringement processing and vehicle owners linked with validated offences are issued a penalty notice.
Finally, we aim to implement average speed traps all over the Arab of republic to reduce the number of road crashes and fatalities by enforcing a maximum travel time for vehicles over a specific distance.
