IFA 2014: TELEFUNKEN Security Systems to present intelligent traffic enforcement system

Munich/Berlin, September 02, 2014 – TELEFUNKEN will be presenting a new highend traffic enforcement technology on stand 101, Hall 2.2 at this year’s International Consumer Electronics Fair (Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA)) in Berlin. A historic race car will serve as a backdrop and TELEFUNKEN smartphones as control units for a surveillance camera taking ultra-sharp photos of visitors to the TELEFUNKEN stand.

At this year’s IFA in Berlin, TELEFUNKEN Security Systems GmbH will be represented on the TELEFUNKEN stand (Hall 2.2, stand 101). As a backdrop for the new intelligent traffic enforcement system, a historic race car will be on display directly at the entrance to the exhibition stand.

Depending on customer requirements, a high-resolution camera ranging from 2MP to 40MP is integrated into the control system offered by this high-tech solution to constantly monitor and register vehicle number plates in normal traffic flows. At the same time, the device measures the exact speed of every passing vehicle, generating an automatic link between the number plate and the vehicle’s speed data. If speed limits are exceeded, the TELEFUNKEN device takes a red or white-light flash photo and sends all the relevant data relating to the vehicle and its owner, including a fullsize HD image, to the responsible traffic control center. The TELEFUNKEN traffic enforcement system is able to simultaneously monitor up to eight lanes in daylight or darkness. Within a speed range of 20 to 250 km/h, the system also immediately reports any wrong-way drivers, as well as non-compliance with the distance required between two vehicles travelling at a certain speed. Depending on the model, these enforcement systems are between 2.5 and 4.5 metres high and have no problem working between temperatures of -25°C and +60°C.

During the IFA 2014, visitors to the TELEFUNKEN stand will have an opportunity to see for themselves how precisely this road safety technology operates by being „flashed“ together with a historic race car in a typical simulated speeding situation. To this end, the camera is controlled via Wi-Fi from a TELEFUNKEN smartphone.
