Chubb launches smart motorway camera

Chubb Systems has launched a new smart motorway camera system to increase safety on UK roads.

The television out station (TVOS) provides all-weather traffic monitoring CCTV coverage, and delivers high-resolution images. It also meets specific technical specifications required by Highways England for its road investment strategy.

The TVOS unit comprises three elements; a long-range, high-resolution camera with optical zoom and back light compensation; an infrared array with 500m range; and a television base unit. Benefits of the package include physical security and cybersecurity accreditation and a remote maintenance service for software upgrades and alterations.

“With emphasis being placed on providing improved technology to the UK’s highways, we can deliver a product and service that matches expectations and offers excellent value for money,” said Dave Dunnagan, sales director, Chubb Systems.

“Alongside the TVOS camera head’s technological benefits are significant cost reductions. Capital costs are reduced with no special brackets needed to hold the camera head in place. The unit’s ongoing costs are minimal as power consumption has been significantly reduced,” Dunnagan added.

In complying with Highways England’s specific regulations, Chubb Systems was awarded a position on Lot 2 (Traffic Monitoring and Traffic Enforcement Cameras) of the Crown Commercial Services/Highways England Traffic Management Technology 2 (TMT2) framework agreement; and Lot 15, the framework’s overall catalog of products.

The television base unit also serves as the outstation element in the Highways England CCTV network – it connects the relevant cameras to the national roads telecommunication system that itself connects back to relevant RCCs, where remote monitoring operatives are located.
