2010 was a busy year for PIPS Technology, and everyone within the team has worked hard to continue the success of 2009. Throughout 2010, PIPS completed a number of large scale projects throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. Here is a review of PIPS activities over the last 12 months.
PIPS supplies Bradford ‘Ring of Steel’. PIPS Technology has supplied the city of Bradford with one of the most comprehensive ANPR systems in the country. The system, consisting of more than 90 cameras in total, can not only be used by the council for measuring journey times but by West Yorkshire Police. West Yorkshire Police can use the system to monitor vehicles that may have been involved in criminality and around the city.
Devon and Cornwall improves security system. PIPS Technology has supplied Devon and Cornwall Constabulary with further ANPR technology to improve their existing security, in and around the counties. The system, originally put into place in 2006, has been extended to offer the ANPR capability across more of the road network. PIPS supplied their P362 and Spike ANPR cameras to the police force to monitor points throughout Devon and Cornwall.
PIPS strengthens relationship with Ranger Services. PIPS has once again been chosen by Ranger Services to supply their P362 ANPR cameras and Autoplate software for installation in over 350 locations. PIPS ANPR technology has been chosen by Ranger to be installed in a number of supermarket car parks and motorway service stations.
Exhibitions and 2011
PIPS was busy throughout 2010 and attended ten exhibitions including Intertraffic Amsterdam, Intersec Dubai and the ITS World Congress in Korea. Intertraffic Amsterdam is the largest biannual traffic technology exhibition throughout Europe and in 2010 PIPS attended for the fourth consecutive time.
2011 is going to be an exciting year for PIPS with a brand-new product launch that will boost the company’s portfolio and be a fantastic new offering to the traffic technology industry. SpeedSpike is going to be PIPS first product offering in the average speed enforcement market, which can be deployed in various locations, including outside schools and colleges where road safety is paramount.
PIPS will also be attending more of the World’s top exhibitions including Traffex, Counter Terror Expo and the ITS European Congress in Lyon. If you are going to be attending any exhibitions during 2011 you will be able to find a list of all PIPS exhibition activity on our website.
