French police tests 3D speed cameras with special sensors

France is currently testing a new 3D surveillance system “NANO" from Parifex. The innovative speed camera measures speed, distance and acceleration at the same time.

The “NANO” speed camera is the world’s first speeding enforcement system with a 3D LiDAR sensor. The French police already registered interest in the system at the end of May, and the cameras are already being tested on France’s roads by now.

„We are very proud to be the first company to offer an innovative speed enforcement system with a 3D LiDAR sensor. The official approval is the result of more than six years of research and development”, commented Franck Peyré, Managing Director of Parifex.

According to the company, the installation costs of the speed camera are lower compared to previous radar systems, and the “NANO” also delivers more reliable images in a shorter time.

Drivers, on the other hand, might not necessarily be as enthusiastic as the providers, because the device is suitable for both stationary and mobile use and not only records speeds, but also acceleration and the distance to other road users.

In addition, the system is also suitable for general traffic area surveillance, as it can keep an eye on an entire street intersection thanks to a 360-degree view and, for example, recognizes traffic offenders who drive through the traffic lights at red, explains Parifex.

The company has not announced any further technical data or the length of the test phase.
