Redflex Halo Traffic Enforcement Camera
- Design + Industry
The challenge was to develop an advanced traffic enforcement camera system offering ground-breaking levels of adaptability and multi-configuration capability, whilst keeping roads safe.
The Redflex Halo Traffic Enforcement Camera has been specifically designed to change driver behaviour through compliance, creating safer roads and improving road toll. The solution is a single camera unit that can be adapted to a multitude of road conditions and site geographies while providing increased levels of accuracy in the monitoring of vehicle speeds and driver behaviours.
Combined All-in-One Unit
The Halo design is the first Traffic Enforcement Camera system to house the three key functional components of radar, flash and camera all within the one unit and mounted to a single pole. Previous camera systems required the flash unit and vehicle detection unit to be mounted separately on other poles, whilst the ground-breaking technology within Halo allows for a single integrated unit. This design provides easy installation and servicing while also reducing the environmental impact of the system.
Stereoscopic Fixed-Lens Camera Array
An array of fixed-focus fixed-aperture small format camera sensors allows Halo to provide multi-lane monitoring of the road way in either direction up to 6 lanes without any onsite camera position or lens adjustments. The Stereoscopic technology combined with radar provides an increased and high level of accuracy in monitoring of vehicle speeds and positions by providing automatic secondary cross-checks for all detection\’s.
Modular & Swappable Chassis Design
An integral chassis design allows for an ease of install and serviceability. It allows for modular components to be customised to suit specific road monitoring requirements per camera installation. The chassis assembly consisting of radar, flash and cameras can be completely removed from the camera housing to allow for servicing to take place at ground level. This also allows hot-swappable components, configurations and upgrades to take place off-site, thus future proofing the design. Materials are recyclable (fabricated design, aluminium main material)
The Halo unit incorporates a unique two door design. By providing access to both the front viewing window surface as well as the rear of the enclosure, the most common maintenance operations can be performed in a minimum amount of time reducing the risk to workers of working by the roadside. Both service access doors can be hot-swapped. Installation can be conducted with two people and a ladder. Lightweight and modular elements remove the need for a crane to be used, thus installation costs are reduced significantly
One size fits all
The clever mounting system used by the internal chassis assembly allows for a customisable range of viewing angles per installation to suit varying road conditions. Regardless of variations in site geography, mounting pole heights and road lane widths a single adjustment on site can accommodate all installation scenarios.
