I think first radar (cam I think) takes plate number and associated time
Second cam takes plate number and associated time.
The distance is known so it only stays to substract times and calculate speed.

If problem like plate not known by both radar, it is your lucky day.

By installing many cams on first point and also in second point system is able to take all lines and many cars in the same time.

So i think it is not radar but cam.

Sorry for my poor english...

The use of camera is confirmed.
http://www.automotoconso.com/leblog/?p=1189

Many countries already use this kind of radar (cam) :
Belgium, UK, Italy and deutchland

In France the first system installed today can be used from 150 meters to many kilometers.
This is MESTA 5000 Smart. It is not already homologate but it will be in august. Up to this date, it works only for tests.
http://www.radars-auto.com/info-radars/ ... -smart.php

The MESTA 5000 SMART can store and analyse up to 2400 vehicules for each line and per hour (so it is confirmed too that one cam is used by line on each side).

When you exceed average speed, a picture of your car is taken.

50 similar systems will be installed in France before the end of 2012.

They are speed cameras, plain and simple.


Yes and No. They are speed cameras, alright, but they are special cameras that don't only monitor one spot one the road but whole segments. The article linked by glenan56 mentions that the two elements (i.e. the camera and the radar device) can be miles apart. I guess most drivers' reaction is to slow down to regular speed when seeing a speed trap and then re-accelerate after passing the trap. So when you only report the initial control point of these new devices, these drivers will be screwed. :oops: When you only report the endpoint of the speed control, it won't make things any better. :roll:
So I think this next generation of speed traps is something we should spend one ore two thoughts on. Though urgency is probably not too high, e.g. I haven't heard of these thingies in Germany yet, but the article says that they are in use over here as well...

Hello,
Is it planned an update Waze integrating radar section?
Because they will very quickly be deployed in France and in many other European countries such as Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands or Swiss.

We should be able to report the first and then the second radar to warn of the end of the section monitored by a specific color flashing (like yellow)!

We have these in the UK, existing speedcam reporting works adequately, no need to rush to add anything new.
As an aside, I hate these things but my they are effective!

I don’t think such, and other previous messages feel the same way …
Take a look to verify if they are effective:

I drive on a road that has an 8 mile section of average speed cameras, I know about this road but I would still like to see this option available. Fixed camera indicators dont cut it, to be honest, especially when the road had a number of fixed position cameras removed when the average cameras were commissioned which for some reason I am not able to remove from the map. There is enough noise on this road as it it, it would be much nicer just to have an indication that there are average speed cameras along this route.

Today, in France, first average speed radar

Postby matuvu18 » Wed Jun 20, 2012 9:08 am

Hello,
today, in France, they activate the first average speed radar. Someothers will be put in place soon.
The system is one radar at one point and an other radar 2 kms after, the system calculate the average speed.
It would be great if Waze could have this feature, for instance the road could be 'painted' in orange (or what ever) to tell the driver this road is under average speed control. It's an idea, others are welcome ! The aim is to be alerted !
Best regards.
