TraffiPatrol-V is a speed enforcement system developed by Robot Visual Systems in Germany. The system uses a beam of laser light to measure a vehicle's speed to within 2 km/hour. Each detected violation results in six digital images of the suspect vehicle. The information from the laser and the images are encrypted and stored on a high-capacity PC-card. Providing six images prevents defendants from alleging that another hidden vehicle is responsible for the speeding. Tests conducted of the system by the Dutch police are discussed. The operating principles of the system are described. The system has been given type-approval by the Swiss and is nearing approval in Italy and the Netherlands. The benefits of a laser system over a radar system are considered.
