Videalert, a UK supplier of CCTV traffic enforcement and management solutions, has launched a new fully electric mobile enforcement bike (MEV-B).
According to Videalert, this is the only bike currently available with manufacturer certification and it will enable councils to efficiently enforce a wide range of moving traffic, parking and clean air zone contraventions. It will also support councils in demonstrating their commitment to reducing emissions.
Videalert’s new MEV-B 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 for a range of up to 70 miles in urban applications.
Furthermore, the batteries are removable to allow for fully charged replacements to be quickly fitted, extending 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 MEB-V is equipped with two dual camera units, one forward and one rear facing, each comprising of both an ANPR and a colour camera which captures contextual video evidence. Videalert added these ONVIF-compliant HD cameras deliver superior capture rates of up to 98% with just a single pass at normal road speeds.
The on-board systems are automatic, requiring no manual operation, and are powered by a separate battery with sufficient capacity to handle two shifts per day.
Rubena Hafizi, client account manager at Videalert, said: “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.”
