The van is equipped with five cameras on the front, rear and roof. The technology can detect the speed of approaching and receding traffic from up to 1,000 metres away and captures 360 degree images of the location. The device produces high-quality images of vehicles and the riders or drivers.
The mobile safety camera pilot was introduced on 1 July 2011 in a bid to reduce fatal and serious road collisions. The pilot was extended following the initial six month pilot period in December 2011.
