Morpho unveils average speed solution at Intertraffic 2012

Intertraffic Amsterdam, March 27, 2012
Morpho (Safran group), a leading supplier of integrated road safety solutions, has launched MESTA SMART®, an average vehicle speed control solution, at Intertraffic Amsterdam 2012.

This new generation solution measures average vehicle speed, day and night, under any weather conditions. Based on automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology, it uses state-of-the art cameras to calculate the average speed of vehicles (up to 250 km/h / 155 mph) over a given distance, ranging from 150 meters to several dozen kilometers.

In addition to measuring average speed, this modern, customizable system offers additional functions, such as the generation of traffic flow statistics and the identification of stolen vehicles.

Designed for both urban and rural settings, MESTA SMART® is particularly suited for speed monitoring in high-risk zones such as schools and roadworks sites. Its purpose is to encourage drivers to respect speed limits throughout the entire road section and thus prevent sudden decelerations and accelerations at control points.

MESTA SMART® will be on display at Intertraffic Amsterdam 2012 from March 27-30, Hall 1, booth # 214.
