Sensys Gatso awarded speed enforcement contracts in the Netherlands and USA


One of the world’s largest suppliers of traffic enforcement equipment, the Sensys Gatso Group, has been selected to deploy Point-to-Point average speed enforcement systems on rural roads in the Netherlands by the Dutch Department of Justice (DoJ).

Through its subsidiary Sensys Gatso Netherlands, the Group will supply, install, maintain and operate ALPR-based (automatic license plate recognition) Point-to-Point speed enforcement systems on Dutch rural roads under the DoJ procurement award, which is worth €6.6m (US$7.7m).

The procurement award covers the supply and installation of systems for 10 Point-to-Point rural road segments with particularly high crash rates. The award also includes a six-year maintenance and operations contract. The delivery and installation of the Point-to-Point average speed enforcement systems will start in February next year and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.

Sensys Gatso won the contract following a detailed evaluation by the DoJ, which found the company’s offer represented the best quality-price ratio within the terms and requirements of the tender. The average speed Point-to-Point enforcement systems are based on Sensys Gatso’s T-Series camera platform.

The system uses a 20MP camera offering 30fps, with the company’s RT4 tracking radar that simultaneously measures the speed and position of up to 32 vehicles in the coverage area. The unit’s integrated wi-fi will transmit data to the company’s PULS data analytics platform that will operate as the back-office enforcement system.

“We are very proud of our excellent quality-price score in this competitive tender,” commented Joris Lampe, CCO of Sensys Gatso Group. “I believe that our flexible data analytics platform, PULS, and our solid service delivery history have been important in winning this award. We are looking forward to continue our strong working relationship with the Dutch government.”

The company has also announced that its North American subsidiary, Sensys Gatso USA, is taking over the automated speed enforcement program in New Miami, Ohio, from its previous provider. The expected sales over the contract period of five years amounts to US$2m.

The company will supply one mobile speed vehicle and two handheld speed units to the New Miami Police Department in the July timeframe. Under the five-year Managed Services contract, Sensys Gatso USA will handle the camera deployment, maintenance, officer training, and the entire fulfilment process, which includes citations mailing and payment processing. New Miami is a small suburban village located outside of Cincinnati. Running through the village is a major state route, SR 127, which runs from Cincinnati all the way north to the Michigan state line and carries thousands of vehicles each day.

Andrew Noble, president of Sensys Gatso USA, said, “We are looking forward to further expansion into the State of Ohio, and are excited for the opportunity to work with the police and village officials in New Miami to help them achieve their safety goals.”
