Talex GPS Speed Camera Detection System

Speed cameras are here to stay. Speeding tickets are expensive. Insurance costs are escalating for people with more speeding ticket points on their licence. Talex, with GPS technology is not just a speed trap alert system, but a road safety device that will warn the driver of fixed, mobile and red light cameras. 

How It Works:

• Talex is our own brand name for the GPS enabled Speed Camera Detector.
• GPS stands for Global Positioning System, and can be used to pinpoint a position anywhere on the Earth's surface.
• The Talex unit can store around 150,000 positions in its database.
• The Talex unit also has an LED display on the front of the unit, which provides additional information to the voice announcements.
• The Talex unit is easy to install, fixing to the dashboard using a small rubberised magnet, with a peel off sticky base. Insert the power jack into the cigar lighter, it is now ready to use.
• The Talex unit is updated via the website.

The Facts

• In the year 2002/2003 more than 1.5 million drivers paid £73 million in speeding offences alone.
• In the year 2003/2004 this figure is expected to increase to 3 million drivers providing over £180 million of fine revenue.
• Just two speeding endorsements are likely to cost between £700 and £1,500 extra in insurance premiums over the following five years.
• 30,000 people lost their licences during 2002 through the totting up system having accumulated 12 points on their licences.
• In a recent Fleet News survey involving more than 200 companies, the fourth most important issue facing fleets is that of speeding and speed cameras. Health and safety ranked as the most important issue.
• In a recent Fleet News health and safety survey 15.8% of fleet operators said a driver had been banned for motoring offences in the past year.
• Almost 30% of the UK’s 2.8 million company car drivers have points on their licences, nearly double that of the average driver. Features Capabilities of detector • Warning of fixed speed camera monitoring systems.

The comprehensive database

• The database of all of the above detection conditions is continually updated with our professional survey team all experienced ex–traffic police officers.
• Mobile sites are continually updated on a weekly basis – making more use of the GPS engine than any other unit. The unique approach of the TALEX speed camera detection system
• Downloading the latest database information on a weekly basis minimises the risks of being caught by a mobile speed camera. 

How It Works

Talex is our own brand name for the GPS enabled Speed Camera Detector. GPS stands for Global Positioning System, and it operates via a system of 28 satellites in orbit around the Earth. The signals from the GPS satellite can be used to pinpoint a position anywhere on the Earth’s surface to a very high accuracy (+/–5m).

The Talex unit can also work out its speed and direction of travel, its height above sea level, as well as the time and the date. The Talex unit can store around 150,000 positions in its database. These can be divided into different data sets, to distinguish between such positions as fixed speed cameras, possible mobile camera positions, red light cameras, schools, and accident black–spots. We can also sub divide some of these groups by speed limit, and allocate a voice alert.

Thus we can alert the driver to a fixed or possible mobile camera site, and give him/her the speed limit at that site. The Talex unit also has an LED display on the front of the unit, which provides additional information to the voice announcements. Whilst driving normally it will display the current speed.

When a warning is triggered, a chime is heard followed by an announcement such as ‘Warning speed camera 500 yards ahead – limit 30 miles per hour’, the speed limit at the camera site will flash for eight seconds, before going back to displaying the vehicle’s speed. This will typically happen at 500 yards from the camera position, (in some cases a 500 yard warning is not ideal because of the road layout). A second chime is heard at 200 yards from the camera site, and if the vehicle is still over the speed limit, a continuous warning is heard ‘Warning – reduce speed’ until the vehicle speed drops to the speed limit, or the camera site is passed.

The Talex unit is easy to install. In the box there is a small rubberised magnet, with a peel off sticky base. The user simply has to remove the sticker cover, and position the magnet on the top of their dashboard. Insert the power jack into the cigar lighter, and plug the other end of the lead into the Talex unit, then place the Talex unit on top of the magnet. It is now ready to use. The unit is very easy to update via the website.

There is no CD Rom to install first, the user simply logs onto the website, and plugs the unit into the PC via the serial port lead (supplied). The unit also has to have power from a three pin plug, (supplied). The user clicks the update database button on the front page of the website, and follows a few simple instructions.

Our back office facility does the rest. We at Talex have taken a revolutionary step with our database collection. Other Speed Camera Detectors may rely on Laser and Radar detectors to warn drivers of mobile cameras operating. We have always considered this to be a very unreliable method of detection. In the case of Laser detectors, they will often alert the driver at exactly the moment their speeding offence is being recorded. Due to the way in which the detector works, as soon as it picks up a laser beam, the speed camera operator has logged the speed, and the process for issuing a ticket has begun. Radar detectors are susceptible to false alarms, and are therefore set at a lower sensitivity than is really required.

These types of detector can issue many false alarms, or fail to detect correctly. Both Laser and Radar detectors are set to become illegal. Our approach is radically different. The police have defined and use designated sites for their mobile camera operations. These sites have been chosen because they are considered to be areas with a history of serious accidents. The mobile camera operator cannot simply choose a convenient stretch of road to operate equipment. We are therefore compiling, within our database, all the designated mobile sites. Rather than trying to ‘out detect’ the cameras we passively warn drivers as they approach any of these sites, raising their awareness of the area ahead.

This approach, regardless of the presence of a mobile camera operator or not, keeps the driver aware of their speed and more alert in general.
