Ecuador Makes its National Roads Safer with Jenoptik Technology

The Ecuadorian National Traffic Commission selected Jenoptik for a 12 year project to make its roads safer. Together with its local Ecuadorian partner, the company will deliver about 120 speed enforcement cameras as well as services.

Jenoptik has been selected together with its Ecuadorian partner by the Ecuadorian National Traffic Commission (CTE) to steer a traffic management project across the entire region of Ecuador. The project spans over 12 years and entails the deployment of more than 120 VECTOR SR cameras, which are used to enforce spot speed. Installations began in January 2024 and the first cameras are now in operation.

The collaboration encompasses services, solutions and the expertise of the local partner, advancing Ecuador’s traffic infrastructure and making its roads safer.

Finbarr O’Carroll, President of Jenoptik’s Smart Mobility Solutions division in the Americas, said:

“We are proud to contribute with our solutions to Vision Zero worldwide and especially in Ecuador. Ecuador is taking a significant step to tackle speeding and to making its roads safer. We are excited to contribute our expertise to this comprehensive traffic management endeavor and look forward to making a lasting impact on Ecuador’s transportation landscape. The project reinforces Jenoptik’s dedication to driving positive change through technological innovation and strategic partnerships.”

Alexis Collazo, Vice President of Sales & Services in Latin America (LATAM) and the Caribbean of Jenoptik’s Smart Mobility Solutions division, said,

“Securing the national project in Ecuador is a significant milestone for us. It reflects not only our commitment to excellence but also our ability to provide the first-of-its-kind comprehensive solution at a national level in Latin America.”

Jenoptik collaborates with its strategic partner

Under this initiative, Jenoptik collaborates with its strategic partner in Ecuador to deliver a turnkey solution to the Ecuadorian National Traffic Commission, leveraging state-of-the-art technology. It contains about 120 non-invasive digital VECTOR SR cameras with which speeding vehicles can be identified, both at day and night with the use of an infrared flash. The project aims to provide robust security measures, proactive accident prevention, and strict law enforcement regarding speed limits, contributing to road safety and reducing fines and accidents across Ecuador.

The first VECTOR cameras were installed in January 2024, the remaining will gradually follow until Mid-2024. Within the first 20 days of operation, speeding drivers will receive a warning ticket without a monetary fee. After that period, people caught not adhering to the speed limit will be issued a speeding ticket by the government.
