    The Stalker Phodar is designed for traffic surveillance and violation evidence collection using the newest 3-Dimension tracking type Doppler radar, video analytics, and high-resolution cameras. The combination of these elements enables monitoring of up to 32 vehicles traveling in both directions on a multi-lane roadway. The Stalker Phodar controlling software produces a series of high-quality Smart Evidence Photos, including all necessary information about the violation. The Smart Evidence file can be used by back office software for automatic ticketing systems.

    Intuitive Setup Wizard

    The Stalker Phodar’s setup wizard guides the user through a step-by-step process for configuring the device. Since the device can be mobile, custom parameters can be stored and retrieved whenever device is rebooted, the settings remain unchanged.

    During setup, the operator is guided by the Wizard through all device settings necessary to set or adjust before beginning evidence collection.



    Local or remote operation

    Locally, the system is controlled with a Graphical User Interface which gives access to all features including browsing of collected evidence, export to external device, calibration and setup, log check, statistics, and live work preview. When permanently mounted, the system can be controlled over a TCP/IP Remote connection. Using TCP/IP access, it is possible to control multiple devices at one control center. Advanced encryption and data protection algorithms secure data from manipulation and ensure successful certification in any country.

    Flexible Monitoring Options

    The Stalker Phodar monitors traffic
    three ways.

    • Side of the roadside. Usually tripod- or utility-pole-mounted.

    • Over the road. Center of the roadway with gantry
      or bridge mounting.

    • Mobile vehicle. Parked vehicle on the side of the roadway.


    Evidence Review and Ticketing

    The Phodar is ideally suited as the evidence collection module of a turnkey enforcement solution, including ANPR, and ticketing and collection applications. A variety of video formats and communications protocols ensure compatibility with numerous back-end systems. In some cases, a customer’s end-to-end project can be achieved through careful consultations and planning. Given the right supporting infrastructure, the SE-1 can be expanded for red light enforcement and secondary violation capture such as cell phone usage or seat belt compliance.


    The Stalker Phodar stores violation records internally. Violation records can be reviewed and selected for copying through its USB port. Additionally, violation records can also be archived to USB or to FTP.

    Each violation record contains a synopsis the data pertinent to an individual violation.
    Each violation records includes:

    • Date and time of the violation
    • Evidence Number
    • Vehicle ID
    • Number of photos
    • Speed limit at location
    • Direction of the vehicle shown as arrow
    • Maximum speed of the vehicle in Measurement Zone
    • Difference between Limit and Captured Speed.
    • Copy Status
    • Status
    • Cropped Vehicle and cropped number plate (if ANPR is enabled)

    Smart Evidence Photo generated for printing and ticketing.

    More violation details are available by opening a detailed Evidence Window. Video evidence can be reviewed frame by frame. The violator is easily identified with a special orange box overlaid in the video. A Road Plan view is rendered showing the Phodar settings at the time of the infraction. The Evidence Window contains basic violation information, and a Smart Evidence Photo can be generated for printing and ticketing.

    The Evidence Window includes:

    • Progress bar showing number of Photos in the evidence
    • Current photo
    • ID: The Violator vehicle ID
    • EvID: unique for the device Evidence ID
    • Y: Distance from the Radar in meters
    • Lane: Lane number
    • Orange Speed: The current Speed on selected image
    • Red MAX Speed: Maximum speed on the violator in region of measurement
    • NP: ANPR Visualization

    Notes:

    (1) given at rated energy, and for pictures of vehicles, slightly under exposes in order to reduce the adverse effect of highlights like reflections on shiny parts.

    (2) given at rated energy.

    (3) the “rated energy” is a value for which the device is optimized. However, thanks to the technology implemented here, which interrupts the ongoing flash much before the full discharge of the storage capacitors, other amounts of energy per shot are possible. With the same set of components, and another adjustment, the devices can output three times their nominal energy, as well as weak shots.

    (4) given at 30% loss of light emission.
