One powerful radar-video fusion device to identify high-speed vehicles

AXIS Q1686-DLE Radar-Video Fusion Camera combines two powerful technologies in one device.

Axis Communications announces an all-in-one, radar-video fusion device designed for traffic monitoring. When combined with license plate recognition software, this powerful device can connect a vehicle’s speed to a license plate.

Easy to install, configure, and set up, AXIS Q1686-DLE Radar-Video Fusion Camera combines two powerful technologies in one device. It can reliably monitor vehicle speeds up to 200 km/h (125 mph), 24/7. When combined with license plate recognition software such as AXIS License Plate Verifier or third-party software, it connects a speed to a license plate to reliably identify a vehicle. This smart device can also detect wrong-way driving, even at high speeds. Using license plate recognition software, it can then accurately identify a license plate and pinpoint the offending vehicle. Multiple line-crossing scenario increases accuracy since the same object must cross two virtual lines to trigger an alarm, making the notifications more reliable. With a low false-notification rate, police can act upon alarms and quickly stop vehicles driving the wrong way.

This fusion device offers great zoom capabilities and delivers sharp, high-resolution video in detail, and images with the pixel density needed for license plate recognition. Thanks to a traffic-optimized IR illumination kit, it can capture license plate images in complete darkness up to 50 m (164 ft). Furthermore, the generated metadata can be gathered and visualized in a dashboard for valuable insights.

Based on an open platform, AXIS Q1686-DLE is compatible with various video management systems and platforms. It can also trigger other devices, for instance, a strobe light to warn and deter e.g., wrong-way drivers. Additionally, smart coexistence makes it possible to install up to eight devices close to each other.

Key features: 

  • Two powerful technologies in one device 
  • Connect vehicle speed to a license plate 
  • Monitor vehicle speeds up to 200 km/h (125 mph) 
  • Detect and identify wrong-way vehicles 
  • Built-in cybersecurity features with Axis Edge Vault 

This innovative, cost-effective device combines a superior Axis Q-line camera with a 60 GHz radar. It offers easy installation, and it’s delivered factory-calibrated with the camera and radar perfectly aligned. With a choice of scene profiles, it’s possible to automatically adjust the image tuning to suit specific purposes. Furthermore, the built-in license plate capture assistant further ensures easy setup and optimal performance.  

AXIS Q1686-DLE will be available through Axis distribution channels in June 2024.
