Quanergy Systems announced last month that PARIFEX’s solution has been certified by a French testing body as the first compliant speed enforcement system based on 3D-LiDAR technology.
Quanergy’s M-Series 3D LiDAR sensors are integrated into PARIFEX’s Double-Side VIGIE solution, which is used for highway speed monitoring and enforcement. The fully automated Double-Side VIGIE monitors multiple lanes of traffic to detect, classify and identify speeding vehicles. The solution simultaneously measures the speed of all vehicles and can identify which ones are speeding with an optimal detection rate.
With certification from Laboratoire national de métrologie et d’essais (LNE), which works under the trusteeship of the French Ministry of the Economy and Finance, this technology becomes the first LiDAR-based speed enforcement solution approved for use by French law enforcement. This certification paves the way for the use of speed enforcement systems based solely on 3D LiDAR as opposed to the current Doppler system. This also offers far more advanced functionalities for road safety.
Franck Peyré, CEO, PARIFEX, said: “We’re proud to be the first company to offer an innovative speed enforcement system that includes 3D LiDAR sensors. We chose Quanergy’s LiDAR for our Double-Side VIGIE solution to strengthen long-range detection at high speeds. Certification by LNE paves the way for us to continue building more and better ways to improve road safety.”
This is a new application of the Lidar, with a higher complexity compared to the stationary speed measurement systems already on the market and used by the police. We will see how robust are these system in regard to the risk of interference between multiple lidars.
