The Cordon Multi Target Photo Radar Camera
Isn’t Anything Private Anymore?
I’m sure that you would agree that pervasive government surveillance which George Orwell wrote about in his novel Nineteen Eighty-Four is becoming more of a reality each day, however Simicon’s new photo radar system erodes our privacy to a new level.
Typical photo radar systems can only track one vehicle at a time, but the new Simicon system called Cordon can track up to 32 vehicles across 4 lanes of traffic.
Also as a car enters into range the Simicon’s OCR technology immediately identifies the license plate and maps the vehicle location date and time into its database.
The Cordon system is portable so it can be easily moved from one location to the next.
In the following video vehicles tagged with a green dot are driving below the speed limit, those with the yellow dot are changing their speed within the acceptable range and those tagged with a red dot are speeding.
Peak Gain Systems, Simicon’s North American distributor plan on making these units available to North American police agencies during the 1st quarter of 2012.
(Simicon had filed a copy-write violation regarding this video, thus the video has been removed)

Are you willing to give up your privacy allowing the government to track your every move?
