  • Back Office Solutions

VITRONIC accompanies its customers through all phases of their projects and covers every step of the support process chain: Consulting, development, construction and installation of monitoring systems. The group’s activities are rounded out by a comprehensive lifetime service as well as targeted user-trainings.

LIDAR-based traffic enforcement systems

All VITRONIC traffic monitoring systems are based on laser scanner measurement technology (LIDAR).

This innovation enables high-precision measurements over several lanes of traffic and eliminates the need to integrate equipment into the road surface

More than 5,000 VITRONIC systems have been installed worldwide.

Speed enforcement solutions

VITRONIC’s speed monitoring solutions automatically detect every vehicle and enable comprehensive speed enforcement, both lane and vehicle class dependent.

Even in the event of lane changes, tailgating and difficult measurement situations such as along roadworks, on curved road, inside tunnels, the measuring systems work reliably and accurately.

Red light enforcement technologies

VITRONIC’s red light enforcement solutions impose red light violations across multiple lanes of traffic simultaneously without loops or piezo sensors.

Through continuous LIDAR position determination, the systems detect and document all red light violations on intersections.

Moreover, the company offers solutions, which additionally capture speed violations during all traffic light phases. Optional remote cameras capture images or videos showing vehicles and traffic lights at the time of the violation.

Average speed enforcement solutions

VITRONIC’s average speed enforcement systems identify passing vehicles on free-flow lanes at pre-selected check points along enforced sections and measure the average speed between these points.

Product features include differentiation between various vehicle classes, front and rear vehicle identification, as well as GPS-based time synchronisation for accurate measurement.

The modular system design allows for various deployment scenarios such as tunnels, overpasses or work zones.

ANPR systems

With its systems for automatic number plate recognition, VITRONIC provides vehicle identification, which relies on the detection and ANPR modules of the company’s latest technology platform.

In conjunction with the company’s back office software, featuring a web based interface, white list and black list database management, remote system operation, and case management, VITRONIC has developed complete state-of-the-art ANPR solutions.

Thanks to LIDAR technology, the systems convince through high recognition rates including at high speeds.

Tolling solutions

The flexibility and performance levels of VITRONIC’s TOLLCHECKER tolling technology have been successfully proven in various toll applications worldwide. The multi-lane free-flow solution comprises a modular system of hardware and software, which allow optimal customisation and integration into existing back office structures.

TOLLCHECKER delivers comprehensive information on vehicles from the roadside to the back office: vehicle detection, vehicle identification, vehicle classification, vehicle passage documentation as well as system operation. The flexible system design accommodates a wide range of tolling concepts, including satellite-based systems via GPS, via communication with on-board units in vehicles via DSRC, video tolling with automatic number plate recognition, and anonymously by classifying the road user.

To meet the demands of the different tolling scenarios, TOLLCHECKER can be realized in form of a single gantry or, especially for tolling of roads with fewer lanes, as a side-mounted CITY DESIGN HOUSING.
