Quanergy and PARIFEX Collaborate for First Compliant LiDAR-Based Speed Enforcement System
Powered by Quanergy’s 3D LiDAR sensors PARIFEX’s speed enforcement solution is certified for use by French law enforcement
SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Quanergy Systems, Inc., (NYSE:QNGY) a leading provider of LiDAR sensors and smart 3D solutions, announced today that PARIFEX’s solution has been certified by a French testing body as the first compliant speed enforcement system based on 3D-LiDAR technology.
Quanergy’s M-Series 3D LiDAR sensors are integrated into PARIFEX’s Double-Side VIGIE solution, which is used for highway speed monitoring and enforcement. The fully automated Double-Side VIGIE monitors multiple lanes of traffic to detect, classify and identify speeding vehicles. The solution simultaneously measures the speed of all vehicles and can identify which ones are speeding with an optimal detection rate.
With certification from Laboratoire national de métrologie et d’essais (LNE), which works under the trusteeship of the French Ministry of the Economy and Finance, this technology becomes the first LiDAR-based speed enforcement solution approved for use by French law enforcement. This certification paves the way for the use of speed enforcement systems based solely on 3D LiDAR as opposed to the current Doppler system. This also offers far more advanced functionalities for road safety.
Enzo Signore, chief marketing officer, Quanergy Systems, Inc., said: “Since 2017, we’ve worked with PARIFEX to use 3D LiDAR technology to improve road and highway safety. Recognition of our joint solution by the French testing body as the first LiDAR-only speed enforcement solution is a testament to the power of 3D LiDAR. We look forward to continuing our work with PARIFEX in France and beyond.”
Franck Peyré, CEO, PARIFEX, said: “We’re proud to be the first company to offer an innovative speed enforcement system that includes 3D LiDAR sensors. We chose Quanergy’s LiDAR for our Double-Side VIGIE solution to strengthen long-range detection at high speeds. Certification by LNE paves the way for us to continue building more and better ways to improve road safety.”
