Multi-Target Photo-Radar System

Remember the good old days when only one speeder at a time is tagged and ticketed for speeding? Consider Cordon's Multi-Target Photo-Radar System.


(Multi-Target Radar System CORDON)

Unlike most photo radar systems, which track only one violator at a time, Simicon's device can simultaneously identify and follow up to 32 vehicles across four lanes. Whenever a car enters its range, the Cordon will automatically generate two images: one from wide-angle view and one closeup shot of the vehicle's license plate. It's also capable of instantly measuring a car's speed and mapping its position, and can easily be synced with other databases via WiFi, 3G or WiMAX.

Concern over speeding predates the modern era. In the remarkably prescient 1894 story A Journey in Other Worlds, there is a reference to instantaneous Kodaks which could be placed on a road for speed control.
