Gatekeeper Launches Automated Lane Enforcement (ALE™) for Bus Lane Violations
Abbotsford, BC – June 29, 2021 – Gatekeeper Systems Inc. (‘Gatekeeper’ or the ‘Company’) (TSX-V: GSI) (OTC: GKPRF) (FSE: 1GK) a video and data solutions provider for public transportation and smart cities, is pleased to announce the product launch of the Company’s AI-enabled Automated Lane Enforcement (ALETM) solution, designed to help cities reduce transit lane violations by automating the video evidence capture and processing vehicle infractions relating to bus lanes and streetcars.
ALE uses video analytics and Artificial Intelligence to identify instances in which vehicles are violating transit lane traffic laws, including specialized applications such as vehicles that partially obstruct the bus lane, vehicles in the bus lane that signal a legal right-hand turn but illegally continue to drive straight, and vehicles that pass a streetcar when passengers are boarding or deboarding. ALE records the video evidence, captures the vehicle license plate, and prepares the instance for review and ticketing using the Company’s proprietary Traffic Infraction Management System (TIMS) software.
“Traffic congestion in cities is an increasing concern as we emerge from the pandemic,” commented Doug Dyment, President and CEO. “User preference toward ride-hailing vehicles vs. transit, increases both the likelihood of passenger drop offs in the bus lane as well as overall traffic congestion. We have developed ALE to help cities tackle these problems and improve transit efficiency and rider safety.”
ALE builds on nearly a decade of experience within the Company, which has an established business of using video analytics to identify, capture evidence and ticket vehicles that illegally pass stopped school buses.
The Company is actively marketing the ALE solution to cities and transit authorities in North America.
