Why returned

The TruCam radar first appeared in Ukraine in mid-2010. First, GAI studied their ability to pilot, and after receiving positive results the device has been applied more massively.

However, it soon became known that the TruCAM is no necessary approvals, and after complaints to the Prosecutor the use of these radars are banned. GAI legitimize the instrument in the autumn of 2011.

From the speed control on the roads of Ukraine were abandoned after the creation of the new patrol police. Also in the course of reforms was dissolved the traffic police.

In August 2015 entered into force the law that provides for, among other things, photo and video fixation of traffic violations. However, due to lack of money he has not earned.

Insufficient state patrol could not cope with the function of prevention of traffic violations and the automatic camera fixing was never introduced.

The question of the return of radar was up after a series of fatal accidents involving vans and commercial trucks. Just one day July 20, a few accidents killed 21 people. In two of the three participated minibuses filled with passengers, and trucks. After these cases it was decided to strengthen the traffic control.


What is TruCam

Radar speed measurement TruCAM is the development of experts of the American space Agency NASA. Laser the principle of measurement of speed makes it one of the most effective radars on the roads.

TruCAM can detect objects to a distance of 1.2 thousand meters. However, to obtain high – quality photos and video the trigger on the device to be pressed a distance of about 70 meters. Before that you need to choose the measurement mode (day, night), and set a threshold speed which will be automatically recorded violation.

You should also set and distance, which will be the measurement of speed.
Another important difference TruCAM – GPS-referencing, which gives the opportunity to fix the violations of the speed car.

As told in the patrol police, to prevent fraud and corruption risks, the portable device TruCam contains the AES encryption algorithm that makes it impossible to intervene in the operation of the system and any adjustments to the data.

Also, the monitoring service of the Department of the patrol police will control the number of administrative materials and the number of surviving video.

The next stage of development is the implementation of the project, in which patrol cars will be equipped with instruments fixing the rate directly in the movement.

The purchase of these devices is envisaged by the state program and will be funded from the road Fund.
