/EINPresswire.com/ June 11, 2012 — Makor Company announces that they have developed a Traffic Speed Detection Wireless Phone Network-Based System.
Makor has received a US patent 7,801,512 based on this system and it has an Israeli patent currently pending.
The system utilizes a cell phone network to automatically measure speeds of the moving vehicles, and further uses a database of speed limits for certain section of road then used together to compare actual speed data detected from a certain vehicle traveling along certain road section against the maximal speed limits for that road section
Signals obtained from vehicular-based cellular phones provide speed information on moving vehicles, are input into a Moving Vehicle Speed Detection system, and they are stored into the system database to provide speed information that is stored in the form of records.
Technologically, this may be achieved by measuring the distances the signals traveling between a moving wireless phone and a fixed set of base stations, and the times these signals take to travel.
The presented system eliminates the need for developing a dedicated mobile wireless information gathering fleet and other high cost devices requiring large capital investments and considerable work force, as currently all the existing devices and processes in the field require police personnel attention to process each traffic violation.
An improved quality and quantity of speeding detections will provide governmental agencies with an ability to generate more speeding violation tickets; hence more money will be obtained by those agencies.
Privacy Protection Issues: We understand the needs of privacy of mobile phone users and, therefore, we will receive all the location information anonymously, (without user’s name) for statistical and real-time analysis only.
