With the Traffic Enforcement Module on the Dallmeier Hemisphere software platform, public authorities can now capture traffic incidents or offences quickly and simply with a software tool. The manufacturer states that a precisely definable and adaptable process enables users to evaluate and follow up on incidents with digital tools – while adhering to the evaluation and data protection regulations. In addition to this, with the Dallmeier Hemisphere Traffic Enforcement Module, local authorities now have the capability to capture traffic violations and file video sequences of the offences efficiently within existing surveillance systems.
The solution reportedly enables operators to perform these tasks quickly and intuitively, allowing local authorities to optimise the process of investigating and punishing traffic violations. Users can implement the system with both Dallmeier cameras or with third-party systems. The Hemisphere SeMSy components can be operated either on premises or in public cloud environments such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Google Cloud Platform.
If an operator observes a traffic offence, they can start recording the camera live stream immediately. For this purpose, the app features a control centre on a time bar for starting, stopping and cancelling recordings. After a recording has been stopped again, a backup is made automatically and saved to an archive together with a timestamp, the name of the camera and the name of the operator. Recordings can be cancelled if an offence has not taken place. For this, the operator must provide a reason either from a dropdown list or in free text. Depending on the requirements applied to a system, selection options with subsequent text input fields can be configured individually. At the same time, all user actions are logged in full.
Besides the actual recording and saving routines, the system also maps the process for follow-up processing of incidents. First, all recorded offences are listed in the module in a chronological overview. Users can filter and search the list by ID, user, violation code, camera name, vehicle registration number, date and time and processing status. In a processing mode, they can review the items and decide whether a traffic offence has been committed and should be reported. For this purpose, they are then able to access the recording or the offence, additional information or snapshots from the recording, and the exact location of the incident on a map section.
If an item is not processed further, because it is evident that an offence has not taken place, this must be confirmed with a predefined justification. All offences which are reported must be collected in detail in a log for subsequent investigation and review. The list can be filtered by data and exported to a PDF file.
“Many towns implement video observation systems at busy traffic junctions. With our solution, these systems are given very valuable additional benefits, whereby besides improving safety they also help to relieve the strain on municipal budgets,” stated Dieter Dallmeier, Founder and CEO, Dallmeier electronic. “The Dallmeier solution enables the operators to secure evidence for traffic offences intuitively and with maximum efficiency with very low training costs. The subsequent evaluation and forwarding process guarantees compliance and data protection, and all processes are logged in detail.”
