Improve safety and traffic flows on your motorways by automatically alerting drivers to speed changes and lane closures – giving them time to adjust their driving to any altered conditions ahead and capturing details of drivers who do not comply.
Redflex’s proprietary solution for lane enforcement on motorways – Red X – uses optical character recognition (OCR) to recognise Red X warnings that inform drivers of a closed lane. The system identifies the lane(s) displaying the Red X and, on detection of a Red X violation, a new incident type is created and processed in the same way that speed violations are.
With Redflex’s OCR-based system, the contextual cameras monitor changes to the variable message signs and provide confirmation of correct sign displays. Alternatively, a direct signal can be fed from the sign controller into the camera system. In this case, the remote camera provides confirmation of correct sign displays.
Red X provides a video of the violation for additional context, as well as visual evidence of the sign status to show that an enforceable event has occurred. Images are in high-resolution and the solution automatically disables enforcement when the signs are turned off or in conflict. Up to four lanes can be monitored simultaneously.
