SeeTraffic is a sophisticated vision-based License Plate Recognition (LPR) system that identifies and tracks number plates on vehicles traveling at low to high speeds. The system can integrate multiple lanes and multiple cameras per lane on a single standard PC system.

The heart of the system is the special camera/illumination unit which is optimized for medium/high speed installations. This unit has extended illumination power and optics, and can be mounted on road bridges or on other above-lane structures, and on roadside installations.

 

  • Recognition speed 2-3 vehicles per second

  • Vehicle traffic speeds: up to 160KMH

  • Single or double cameras per lane

  • Number of lanes: 1-4

  • Typical applications: Traffic surveillance and enforcement systems, average-speed violation systems, security and toll-road installations

The following illustration shows a typical configuration of a SeeTraffic LPR system (for example, for 2-lanes traffic monitoring system).

  The application runs as a background Windows application in the PC (shown in the center), and interfaces to a set of SeeCarTraffic camera/illumination units (one for each vehicle) which are interfaced by the frame grabber. The application controls the sensors and controls via an I/O card that is connected thru a terminal block to the inputs and outputs.
 

 

The main output of the application is a DDE message, which is easily integrated into a Client application locally or across the network. Our SDK (Software Development Kit) comes with several ready-made Client applications that can be a basis for this integration and custom-built applications. For more details - see SeeLane integration concept.

 

SeeTraffic is based on external triggering sensor such as loop detectors or laser sensors. It can trigger either when:

  •  the vehicle activates the sensor (for front plate detection), or

  • when the vehicle leaves the detection (for rear plate detection),

  • or use the special "stereo" mode (which takes in account both the front and rear plate detections).

 

Another derivative of SeeTraffic can operate on the basis of a software trigger. This application, SeeRoad, is a single lane LPR system that triggers when the plate is seen entering a detection zone.

 
BIG TRAFFIC OFFENDERS PAY UP IN CITY CRACKDOWN


MEDIA RELEASE

BIG TRAFFIC OFFENDERS PAY UP IN CITY CRACKDOWN

A man with more than 400 warrants of arrest for traffic fines totalling R250 000 has been arrested. He was number one on the list of the Top Twenty traffic offenders and is out on R25 000 bail.

As a result of the traffic blitz across the City area, a taxi organisation whose 230 members had 839 warrants of arrest for a total of R750 000 in traffic fines, came clean and paid. Other organisations with large vehicle fleets have since contacted the traffic authorities to ensure they have no unpaid fines.

Eight of the City’s top traffic offenders, including the first four on the list, have been arrested since the end of October. The arrests include the number two offender who had 71 warrants of arrest and traffic fines of R50 000. After appearing in court, the driver had to pay R10 600 in fines and was then given bail of R8 000. Top offender number three had 69 warrants and fines of R34 000, while number four had 62 warrants and fines worth R35 000.

Some offenders are company vehicle fleet representatives who have ignored the minimum of four notices sent out before a fine leads to a warrant of arrest. Others on the Top Twenty list are individual drivers. All drivers with outstanding warrants could face arrest at road blocks held daily across the City area.

The City’s Chief Operating Officer, Rushj Lehutso, said: “These actions show the City is serious about law enforcement to make our roads safer. The net around traffic offenders will tighten. It is only fair to the thousands of safety conscious, law-abiding residents in our city. We appeal to drivers to check that their record is clean. We do not want them to face arrest at road blocks.”
The current traffic blitz is aimed at recovering all outstanding traffic fines since 1 July 2003. This is the official cut-off date determined by the Director of Public Prosecutions. Warrants issued for those failing to appear in court before the cut-off date, remain valid and will be executed. No-one, however, will be prosecuted for offences before the cut-off date that had not yet resulted in a warrant being issued.

The tools used by the City of Cape Town to step up law enforcement includes the integrated city-wide traffic offence system, daily roadblocks, the sophisticated Licence Plate Recognition system and action to prosecute the Top Twenty offenders. The LPR system is linked to the City’s central data-base and any outstanding fines or warrants linked to the vehicle or driver’s identity number can be traced at the road block. The main goal is to improve road safety as offenders get the message that they will be found.

The road blocks and traffic blitzes are conducted every day in all residential and business areas across the City area. Ten courts are hearing traffic cases. As offenders fail to appear, warrants for their arrest are issued. Drivers who ignore notices to pay fines or appear in court have to check from time to time for new fines and warrants even if they have settled outstanding matters.

Drivers can call 08600fines (08600 34637) to find out if they have any outstanding fines or warrants of arrest. Fines can be paid at traffic offices, but offenders need to go to a specific court to settle warrants.

TRAFFIC LAW ENFORCEMENT TO BE STEPPED UP


MEDIA RELEASE
NO. 241/2005
31 AUGUST 2005



TRAFFIC LAW ENFORCEMENT TO BE STEPPED UP

Cape Town motorists will soon see more road blocks and stepped up law enforcement in a campaign to promote road safety, recover outstanding traffic fines and execute warrants of arrest.

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has officially informed the City of his ruling that all offences committed and warrants of arrest authorised after 1 July 2003 are valid. This means offenders are liable to pay fines and finalise the warrants through the existing processes.

Offences recorded on the City Of Cape Town’s traffic contravention system before 1 July 2003 will be withdrawn in terms of the directive of the DPP.

“As a caring City, we appeal to offenders with outstanding warrants to settle them immediately as we do not want them to face the unpleasantness of an arrest at a roadblock,” said Rushj Lehutso, Chief Operations Officer for the City of Cape Town.

“Our aim is to make our roads safer and we want to inform offenders that they need to respect traffic laws and the safety of other road users, “said Lehutso.

With the City’s integrated traffic contravention management system, it is now possible to have City-wide ticketing, law enforcement, enquiries and payments of fines and warrants. The system covers the greater City of Cape Town which extends from Gordons Bay and Cape Point in the south, all the way up to Atlantis on the west coast and inland to the other side of Brackenfell.

The system is becoming more sophisticated. Backlogs have been eliminated as a result of the decision made by the DPP. The City is now able to concentrate its efforts on all outstanding cases in order to improve law enforcement.

To this end, a series of targeted road blocks, utilising the licence plate recognition system (LPR) will be conducted to identify offenders with outstanding fines and warrants of arrest over the next few weeks across the City area. Someone who committed an offence in the Helderberg area, could be stopped at a roadblock in Sea Point.

Offenders will also be called in a telephone campaign to inform them of outstanding warrants of arrest and to advise them on how to settle the matter at the relevant court. If they are stopped at a road block before paying, however, they could face arrest. They should therefore settle all outstanding warrants as soon as possible and not wait to be called.

A warrant of arrest is issued when someone who has ignored a traffic fine and a notice to appear in court fails to do so. The warrant is issued by the court and cannot be withdrawn by the City of Cape Town or traffic officers at a road block.

Transport department in IT push
BY LEON ENGELBRECHT , ITWEB SENIOR WRITER
[ Johannesburg, 13 June 2007 ] - Gauteng transport MEC Ignatius Jacobs is expanding the i-traffic system, in use along some of the province's national roads, onto the R21 and R24 highways in order to ease traffic congestion.

“Worldwide, efficient and effective transport management – from public transport, to use of private vehicles to freight and logistics – is made possible by the use of intelligent transport systems, or ITS as it is commonly known,” he said in his annual budget vote in the Provincial Legislature yesterday.

 
Although he cited no figures, it is clear this and other IT-related projects will make up a fair proportion of his R6.4 billion budget.

Jacobs' remit includes dealing with traffic congestion that every peak time turns parts of the provincial highway and byway system into a parking lot. The SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) is expanding i-traffic's coverage from a 30km to a 180km stretch. Sanral expects to manage the provincial camera system from its Midrand control centre.

In addition to the Sanral network and the mooted provincial spend, for which civil engineering work has already been done, the City of Johannesburg also operates cameras along the M1 highway, to which Sanral has access.

Successful ITS pilot

Jacobs called the scheme a success, saying: “ITS enables us to monitor the road network to identify incidents, effectively manage them and proactively inform the public of these events to alter their trip planning. ITS also makes it possible to redirect traffic to other routes, by means of variable message signs, travel time estimation, etc.

“I am proud to announce that we successfully piloted the use of ITS during car-free month [last October] in the province,” Jacobs said. “Based on the success of this pilot, we will, in this financial year, implement ITS [along] the R24 and R21 road reserves… The implementation process includes installation of cameras and variable messaging boards along the R24 and R21, and installation of traffic count, speed control and character recognition software in all cameras.”

The MEC also announced the expansion of a driver licence testing pilot programme to facilities at Roodepoort and Nasrec. He launched the pilot programme, involving specially modified vehicles at Johannesburg's Langlaagte testing facility, in April. The R23 million system uses digital signatures and pictures, as well as biometric thumbprints, to authenticate the candidate's identity at each stage of the process.

At the time, he said the automation of the driving test eliminated a major hurdle: objectively evaluating the test. “Up to now it was the prerogative of the tester. If he failed you, it was his word against yours.”

Eliminating bribery

The new system provides evidence of the test, with the yard monitored by 19 CCTV cameras and the 10 Toyota Corollas used for Code Eight tests fitted with forward, rearward and driver-facing cameras. What they see during the test, as well as other information, is recorded and played back to the candidate in an “after action review”.

“It is now impossible to get a licence through bribery or error,” Jacobs promised. “People will need to know the rules of the road and how to drive to get a licence, which ultimately means safer drivers on the road.”

Jacobs yesterday also announced construction of a central control room at the Loveday VIP garage for the province's road traffic inspectorate and outlined a pilot integrated ticketing system for taxis.

The MEC furthermore announced an overhaul of the vehicle number plate system, citing security concerns. He says the new system will be ready for implementation by August. “Consultations with key stakeholders and users will begin next month and run for six months. Full-scale implementation is scheduled for 1 January.”

The new number plate series will include a bar code and other security measures that will allow police and traffic officials to link a car to its owner. The measure will help fight car theft and number plate cloning, and will require the accreditation of all number plate manufacturers and distributors.
