Traffic rule violation is a crucial problem in modern urban environments. Logipix has a contemporary answer for detecting violations and maintaining security in everyday traffic. As fast reaction and the prevention of traffic violations are the key to ensuring the safety of vehicles and citizens, the Logipix end-to-end Traffic Violation Management solution was designed with specifically these in mind.
The aim of the system
The aim of Logipix Traffic Violation Management solution is to maintain security in everyday traffic by precisely detecting and recording traffic violations. The effectively captured violation images and additional information prove to be irrefutable evidences for local authorities.

- Speeding detection
- Traffic counting
20 MP Logipix ONE cameras
Logipix uses wide dynamic range 20 MP cameras with a 1” large sensor in the traffic solution. Video Content Analysis does not need high-resolution images to work accurately, but when it comes to proving a violation, the detailed images are essential irrefutable evidences. The Logipix cameras produce 20 FPS at full resolution. The high frame rate allows the system to measure the position of the vehicles accurately. As the cameras can cover large areas, a single device can monitor multiple lanes.
With the specially developed, integrated Logipix IR Flash, the cameras can offer sharp and detailed images of license plates at night, even if glaring headlights hinder visibility conditions. As the IR Flash is able to work with different flash powers, both reflective and non-reflective license plates can be detected.
Logipix integrated a monopulse, multi-lane radar in the traffic solution for speeding detection. It measures the speed of up to seven vehicles at the same time and provides the information in telegrams. The speed of the vehicles are matched with the vehicle objects that are recognized by VCA.
Outdoor Network Video Recorder
The NVRs of the solution work onsite at the intersections, that makes the system extremely bandwidth-effective, easing communication between the sites and the server.
The NVR has an outdoor enclosure with IP65 rating, that makes it possible to perform well even in extreme weather conditions. A high-definition video card, fast CPU, and a large memory provide accurate Video Content Analysis processes. With the built-in I/O panel, external systems can be connected easily.
Connected traffic light system
As the traffic light system can be connected to the NVRs, the states can be displayed on the camera images. This way there is no need for extra investment to monitor them.
Video Content Analysis
Logipix engineers developed several hardware-driven Video Content Analysis applications that accurately detect traffic violations and provide information on traffic flow. The automatic VCA facilitates violation management procedure and greatly increases the amount of the daily processed traffic violations. The Logipix Traffic Violation Management solution provides image-based traffic counting as well. As the VCA performs this feature, there is no need for expensive installation of inductive loops.
If a vehicle violates a traffic rule the system automatically detects it and sends the key, and further four relevant images of the violation to the server. The system detects the license plate within the captured key image, then crops and sends it to the connected ANPR for character recognition. This information is can be sent to an external vehicle database that provides vehicle and owner data. The Logipix Traffic Violation Management solution is also able to interface with special customer-managed lists to filter out vehicles or override violations. All relevant images of the violation and important vehicle data are collected in a violation package.
Violation Management Client
The compiled violation packages are sent to a self-developed software, the VMC so operators can easily review, decline, confirm or send the violations for further investigation.
The Violation Management Client is an extremely user-friendly program which has been designed to maximize the amount of the processed violations. Thanks to its intuitiveness, operators are able to learn the main program usage within just minutes. Once the traffic violation is confirmed in the VMC, the system automatically creates a complete violation report and sends it to the appropriate local authorities.
The main advantages
End-to-end solution – Logipix successfully combined automatic traffic violation detection methods, high frame rate and extremely high- resolution in an end-to-end solution, resulting in a safer and more organized traffic in modern cities.
Less cameras are needed – Logipix ONE 20 MP cameras are used at the intersections that can cover multiple lanes at the same time with enormous resolution.
Reliable operation 24/7 – The integrated IR Flash and the built-in, automatically changeable optical filters in the camera make it possible to get clear and sharp images at night as well.
License-dependent violation detection – There is no need for purchasing different hardware to detect different types of traffic violations. Logipix is able to detect all the common types of traffic violations with the same hardware components.
Automatic violation management process – The system is capable of detecting and managing traffic violation automatically.. The Logipix Traffic Violation Management solution collects data from connected ANPRs, country-specified vehicle databases and customer-managed lists, and creates a complete violation package therefore covering the entire procedure.
Fast and easy evaluation process – Logipix developed the easy-to-use Violation Management Client in the aim of processing the largest number of violations. Operators can evaluate thousands of traffic violations a day.
