Further delving on the manufacturer's site I linked to above, I found the "Spike 2" system. Is this the one you've seen, Wazza_G?

Andy, no I was looking at this one earlier today. No Wazza_G's is the one I took a photo of and gave the link to. My picture doesn't show it very well but from the front the "roof" of the camera is like a house roof with 45 degree angled sides. I'll try to get a better picture later today.

Further to previous posts I have uploaded four more close up pictures of the Taunton ANPR cameras.

The cameras appear to be made by Computer Recognition Systems http://www.crs-traffic.co.uk/ who do supply traffic flow management systems according to the working parts of their website.

Wilderness, you've described them perfectly with:

Quote:
They have two lenses at the front vertically aligned and on either side are a bank of LEDs for illumination.


Ultimately I's say that they're a combination of TheSpike & Spike 2.

So if you remove the cowl of Spike2 & put it in the case of TheSpike & it was all black, then you'd have it.

The others are like I said on a set of lights on Priorswood Road, I think it was a pedestrian crossing about 300m beyond the Premier Inn.

The other one is on top of the traffic lights, just before the roundabout to the A3065 Silk Mills Lane, although that maybe one like the 2nd photo in your gallery, it was hard to tell, because I was in heavy traffic at the time, but definitely there.

So from both of your descriptions it sounds like they maybe ANPR cameras, but I'm still suspicious. Confused

My gut feeling is that they are going in place prior to the new Park and Ride being opened in Henlade as my guess would be that that is going to cause traffic nightmares in Taunton

Hi there
I have uploaded specific photos of these cameras from the A358 -







Would be great if someone could confirm the type

Edit resize of pictures, they are best kept to below 500 pixels wide to avoid messing up the browser window - Mike Alder

Those are exactly the ones! Very Happy

The same type are also fixed to several sets of traffic lights too. Evil or Very Mad

I didn't/ don't know the answer, but it was annoying to have to scroll sideways.

I'm sure there is someone who may know, but not me i'm afraid.

MikeB and I are off to Traffex at the NEC tomorrow to gather 'intel' on the latest and greatest camera technology. I'll do my best to ID these for you.

I've just been down the Taunton cop shop to enquire about these cameras. They say (well, the girl behind the desk) they 'think' they're a combination of ANPR and traffic flow monitoring devices but are nothing to do with them. How can I upload my photos to this forum? Or has someone got to the bottom of the mystery?[/img]
