SpeedGard Traffic Calming System

Transport Data Systems has released its new SpeedGard system. SpeedGard™ was designed to provide a photo enforcement tool for detecting the speed of vehicles and capturing multiple images of vehicles which exceed a user defined speed threshold. It provides 24 hour speed enforcement for use in Home Owner Associations, School Zones, Work Zones, Municipal and Rural highways, and any other locations where there is a need to calm traffic. The tool is evidence driven and is a most effective tool in reducing speeds and increasing safety. The radar measures the speed of each passing vehicle. When a vehicle exceeds a user configurable maximum speed, the digital camera captures a series of images of the vehicle and its license plate. SpeedGard™ provides undeniable proof of speed violations. The SpeedGard™ consists of a Doppler radar, a camera, an invisible LED flash unit, a processor and a wireless access point. Each SpeedGard™ unit comes pre-installed with software for setting speed thresholds and managing data. Photos of speed violators vehicles can be remotely accessed from any web browser. Enforcement methods may range from warning letters to citations. The violations and the association images can be downloaded via the built in wireless interface. In locations where netoworks already exist, the violations and images can be uploaded to a central location for processing. Furthermore TDS will provide violation processing and data management services if desired. Automatic license plate number reading is also available for implementation if the system needs to compare license numbers with an existing database for detection of vehicles of interest.

Transport Data Systems designs, develops, produces, and sells automatic vehicle classification and license plate capture products for the fare collection, commercial vehicle operations, parking lot access, school bus enforcement, and border crossing markets.
