Videalert launches new electric mobile enforcement bike
ITS (UK) member Videalert has launched a new electric mobile enforcement bike (MEV-B). This is the only bike currently available with Manufacturer Certification andwill enable councils to efficiently enforce a wide range of moving traffic, parking and clean air zone contraventions whilst demonstrating their commitment to reducing emissions.
The company, which is part of Marston Holdings and one of the UK’s leading suppliers of intelligent traffic management and enforcement solutions’ new MEV-B product is based on the Niu Cargo bike, from Niu Technologies, which designs, manufactures and sells high-performance smart e-scooters. It uses two 29Ah Lithium batteries to give a range of up to 70 miles in urban applications. The batteries are removable allowing fully charged replacements to be quickly fitted to extend the number of shifts it can cover on a daily basis. Fitted with front and rear disc brakes, the MEV-B also has a regenerative braking system which returns energy from braking to the battery.
The on-board systems are totally automatic requiring no manual operation and are powered by a separate battery with sufficient capacity to handle two shifts per day. The MEB-V is equipped with two dual camera units, one forward and one rear facing, each comprising both an ANPR and a colour camera which captures contextual video evidence. These ONVIF-compliant HD cameras deliver superior capture rates of up to 98% with just a single pass at normal road speeds.
According to Rubena Hafizi, Client Account Manager at Videalert: “As a former manager of parking and transport services I can really see how this new MEV-B will enable councils to demonstrate their commitment to improving air quality by reducing vehicle emissions whilst undertaking essential compliance monitoring. It also further extends our market-leading portfolio of traffic enforcement and management solutions.”
