Jenoptik Robot’s Traffic Solutions division will provide road traffic monitoring systems in Switzerland, Austria and a Middle Eastern country.

The German companies TraffiSection system uses its own digital camera system to monitor road users’ speeds over a road stretch between the entry and exit cross-sections and sends the data to traffic authorities.

By recording the vehicle’s image and licence number by SmartCamera with the aid of the integrated OCR software, the system helps the authorities catch the vehicles exceeding the set speed limits.

The system also helps monitor the desired number of traffic lanes during road section measurement.

The three orders are worth $5.4m, and are scheduled for delivery by late 2010 or early 2011.
