Racomtel has a long lasting and rich experience in speed monitoring. With this extensive experience we have developed configurations of digital cameras with different types of detection. The principle behind the different technologies is shown in a few clear animations. 


Each set of violation images details true speed as the vehicle passes the camera and also provides important details such as the location of the camera, posted speed limit, and time of day.

The Racomtel Difference: Accuracy & Credibility

How does it work?

Each detector is directed onto a single lane and projects a virtual loop on the road surface: the ‘footprint’. A vehicle present in the footprint area is continuously measured and the output from these measurements is sent to the NID unit. The trigger point (or photo point) is in the middle of the footprint and can be aligned according to the local and legal situation: on the stop line, before the stop line or after the stop line. When a car is in violation, in this case passing the trigger point when the stoplight is red, the NID triggers the digital Racomtel Traffic Camera, which will take a photograph of the offending vehicle. An optional second photograph is taken after an interval time or interval distance.

Employing the Racomtel system, the Camera can detect up to four lanes and can detect either approaching or receding traffic. One Fixed or Mobile Camera can detect up to three lanes.
