Radar Vision™ Enforcement

Stuttgart Inc. with our Radar Vision™ line of products takes a Vision Zero approach to road safety through improving mobility, speed management, Data collection and Speed Enforcement.

The Radar Vision™ Enforcement system uses a ultra-high resolution 78GHz 4D radar together with up to 48 Megapixel high speed camera, an 8-Core processor in a handheld size system.

This state of the art system is revolutionizing the industry in the US for Work Zone, School Zone and Red Light enforcement in order to promote and ensure public safety and responsible driving.

Is automated speed enforcement not banned in many states?

In the United States, there’s notable support from various institutions and governmental bodies for the use of automated speed enforcement (ASE) to improve traffic safety. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) endorses the use of speed safety camera enforcement (SSC) as part of a broader speed enforcement program. This approach is not meant to replace traditional speed management strategies but rather to supplement them, helping to modify driver behaviours concerning speeding. 

SSC systems have been recognized as a Proven Safety Countermeasure by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and are documented to reduce roadway fatalities and injuries by 20% to 37%. These systems can be of different types, such as fixed units for specific locations, point-to-point systems for measuring average speed over a distance, and mobile units for flexible deployment.

There is a growing consensus on the value of automated speed enforcement in enhancing road safety, improving compliance with speed limits, and ultimately reducing the incidence of speed-related crashes and fatalities.

How do these systems sustain themselves financially?

They are sustained financially by the actions of reckless drivers but also by the broader implications for all road users. The strategy of having these risky drivers contribute financially to road safety initiatives is a practice implemented globally, demonstrating substantial success in enhancing road safety. Contrary to widespread beliefs fueled by instances of corruption receiving significant media attention. The reality is that the majority of automated enforcement systems operate at no cost to the community. These systems, often misunderstood due to selective media reporting, actually serve the community by significantly improving the safety of our roads without imposing financial burdens.

Just how precise are these traffic enforcement systems?

These systems are engineered to achieve accuracy within less than 1 MPH, coupled with an additional tolerance margin, around 10 MPH. Most vehicle speedometers are calibrated to show a speed slightly higher (about 3 MPH) than the actual speed. This design consideration provides a cushion to accommodate various uncertainties around the driver, whilst the equipment remains accurate within less than 1MPH. 

The technology is capable of monitoring speed across up to eight lanes simultaneously using a single, high-resolution, high-speed radar camera positioned alongside the road. To ensure reliability, the system employs up to three distinct and independent methods for measuring each vehicle’s speed, enhancing both accuracy and trustworthiness in its enforcement capabilities.
