Environmental zones

City centres have congestion charging or prohibit entry by vehicles that have (old) polluting engines. Our scanning equipment detects all vehicles and matches the license plate to vehicle registration databases with information on engine type or age. Special permit white lists may be checked as well. Information on unlawful vehicles can be sent directly to the organisation that can issue a fine. Colour images are made for evidence purposes.

Advantages of our static products:

  • Cost saving in areas with few entries and exits
