- Precise laser – airbag weakening for reliable airbag tear lines.
Jenoptik’s advanced laser technology enables airbag weakening in all components of the vehicle interior and supports the passive safety systems of modern vehicles.
For optimum performance of passive safety systems – such as passenger airbags – it is essential to introduce precise tear lines in components of the vehicle interior. With Jenoptik technology, the airbag is weakened with a laser, which very gently removes material, with minimal heat input, without putting mechanical stress on the components. The laser is a tool that, unlike all mechanical processes, never becomes blunt, so that all component parts can be manufactured under exactly the same conditions. In addition, the non-contact machining process does not produce any chips. The resulting smoke is extracted without leaving any residue and cleaned off in an environmentally friendly manner.
The tear lines themselves can be created by making a large number of pocket holes with or without residual wall thickness or with slots in any possible combination and with any kind of geometry, as per customer requirements. The airbag opening force can be adjusted by changing the parameters of the tear line – for the best possible airbag performance.

Jenoptik as a reliable partner at your side supports you to increase road safety by reducing speeding and red light violations and automatically recording number plates. We have individual products and services as well as complete traffic solutions to meet whatever requirements you have.
Jenoptik specialists provide competent advice on every aspect of road safety and work with you on how best to implement traffic enforcement systems. We analyse local situations, develop concepts and financing models, install the appropriate systems, train your staff, prepare the results and maintain your systems. You can then increase safety at hazardous road sections and reduce accidents at multi-lane junctions or motorways, in tunnels, on country roads and at public buildings in urban areas.
- Speed enforcement increases road safety
Jenoptik's mobile, semi-stationary and stationary speed enforcement systems helps reduce road accidents.
Speed enforcement increases road safety. Jenoptik's highly advanced systems help to significantly reduce accident numbers. Our equipment can be used at accident blackspots, busy junctions, in traffic-calmed areas such as kindergartens and old people's homes, and on hazardous road sections such as on motorways, tunnels and country roads. Specific locations or longer road sections can be monitored.
State-of-the-art laser and radar sensors deliver measurements you can depend on. They not only detect speeding vehicles, but also vehicles in wrong lanes, overtaking offences and illegal turns, and are able to simultaneously monitor multiple lanes in both directions. High-resolution cameras automatically document traffic violations with vehicles being clearly identifiable in the images, even in the dark or in bad weather conditions. The images are legally admissible and will stand up in a court.
Average speed cameras
- Average speed cameras improving road safety
Jenoptik average speed cameras increase safety along hazardous road sections. They provide improved and safer traffic flows and therefore lower emissions.
Average speed cameras are regarded as one of the surest ways of increasing safety along hazardous road sections, e.g. at tunnels, bridges, motorways and roadworks. Jenoptik's systems have also been proven to help improve traffic flow and reduce CO² emissions. Speed measurement begins when a vehicle enters a specified road section. A high-resolution average speed camera records the number plate using state-of-the-art cryptological technology, together with a time stamp. When the vehicle exits the road section, the number plate is re-captured by the average speed camera. The two anonymous data records are compared and an average speed calculated as evidence of speeding.
Red light cameras
- Innovative red light camera systems for combined speed and red light enforcement
Jenoptik offers red light camera systems which can also be simultaneously used for speed enforcement, thereby increasing traffic safety.
Red light violations, illegal turning, driving in the wrong lanes and speeding are the main causes of fatal road traffic accidents, especially at junctions. By using Jenoptik's innovative and individually adapted red light camera systems, traffic can be monitored and infringements prosecuted while saving on resources. A single device can be used for all requirements. Traffic safety is then increased and accidents reduced.
The red light camera systems are based on state-of-the-art radar technology and induction loops combined with high-resolution cameras. These provide legally admissible images. The systems enables multiple lanes to be monitored simultaneously. Different speed limits can also be set for different vehicle types, e.g. cars and trucks. We offer devices that can be used flexibly for various purposes and at different types of location. Because every junction is different, we customise our products and services to meet individual needs.
- Professional evaluation software for traffic safety
Jenoptik's evaluation software efficiently and reliably processes large data volumes including data pre-processing for downstream procedures.

Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR)
- ANPR: Highly advanced technology for automatic number plate recognition
Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) is particularly powerful, classifying vehicle type and recording number plates worldwide.
Police and security authorities worldwide are using automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) for various purposes such as border and toll controls, and to increase civil security. Jenoptik's highly advanced technology has been proving itself in international projects for more than 30 years. Our experts are constantly presented with new requirements and are developing individualised products to precisely meet customer needs.
Jenoptik´s deep learning software makes ANPR particularly powerful by being able to extract even more information from recorded images. The software reliably differentiates between vehicle classes such as passenger cars, vans, lorries, buses and motorcycles. It can also recognise practically any of the world’s number plate types. The software integrates into the ANPR cameras so no additional equipment or installation is required, and achieves far better results than conventional visual technologies.
ANPR data analysis software
- Data analysis software: Targeted processing and evaluation of number plate data
TraffiData analysis software evaluates number plate data in real time and is generating easy to read reports to increase civil security worldwide.
ANPR data analysis is helping police and security authorities around the world to increase civil security. ANPR cameras continuously record vehicle number plates while TraffiData analysis software filters and clearly displays the required information. From the huge amount of ANPR data, personnel on the ground can then automatically obtain the information they need, saving on costs and resources.
TraffiData analysis software also uses sophisticated algorithms to identify patterns, e.g. two or more vehicles frequently seen driving together, quickly identifying potential threats. TraffiData can help to provide an indication of where a vehicle may travel next, based on previous patterns and behaviours. Filters can also be set to alert authorities when a vehicle is detected within a specific area, helping to protect high-risk locations such as connecting roads, city centres, airports, critical infrastructures and public buildings.
- Border security: Record and analyse ANPR data in real time
Increased civil security: VECTOR² cameras and TraffiData analysis software record vehicles at borders and evaluate ANPR data in compliance with legal requirements.
Law enforcement agencies use automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) to monitor and control all borders. With the VECTOR² camera and TraffiData solutions, Jenoptik can assist agencies to quickly identify persons and vehicles of interest which can help safeguard borders. Many countries already use Jenoptik's advanced technology to combat organised crime and terrorism.
Combating organized crime
- Combat organized crime with ANPR cameras
Record and evaluate ANPR data in real time by using VECTOR² cameras, TraffiData analysis software and TraffiMobile cameras for combating organized crime.
Jenoptik's advanced technologies, products and services help police and security agencies combat organized crime and terrorism. Our experts have years of experience in international projects and will advise you competently on how to effectively increase civil security. Automatic number plate recognition helps to combat organized crime especially at high-risk locations such as connecting roads, city centres, airports and public buildings.
Portable and stationary ANPR cameras and analysis software provide continuous traffic surveillance. VECTOR² cameras are compact, robust and powerful, and can be installed on traffic lights, lighting columns or any other existing masts. Recorded ANPR data is transmitted in real time then processed in a secure data centre. TraffiData analysis software is then used to evaluate the data for comparison against watch lists, instantly alerting the police and security authorities when a suspect vehicle is identified.
Protecting public places
- ANPR technology helps in the early detection and prevention of organized crime and criminal acts in public places.
Jenoptik's automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) solutions help police and security authorities by increasing security measures in public places. Networks of multiple VECTOR² cameras can be installed for mass surveillances of suspect vehicles approaching highly populated locations such as government buildings, airports, universities, hospitals, shopping malls and multi-story car parks.
VECTOR² cameras have a high capture rate and automatically transmit data to data centres. TraffiData analysis software analyses the information in real time, compares it against police watch lists, and automatically reports suspect vehicles. For example, in a university security zone, a suspect vehicle is detected by the first VECTOR²camera installed in the network. The software reports that this vehicle is within the safety zone. By passing the second VECTOR²camera, police and security officers will know precisely where the car is heading enabling them to take appropriate action.
Monitoring suspect vehicles
- Identify, monitor and intercept suspect vehicles
Jenoptik’s automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) enables you to create criminal profiles and movement patterns of suspect vehicles.
Vehicles have a key role in organised crime and are frequently used as a means of transport or escape from criminal activities. ANPR technology helps the police and security authorities to quickly Identify, monitor and intercept suspect vehicles, by enabling crime prevention and increasing civil security.
Powerful ANPR cameras combined with advanced analysis software are designed to filter out suspects from millions of other vehicles. ANPR data is processed and analysed in real time, and the software is able to compare number plates against existing watch lists. When a search returns a hit, like a stolen vehicle or a vehicle with false plates, the police and security authorities are automatically alerted. Filters can then be used to reconstruct movement patterns, departure points and links to other vehicles. Police and security authorities can then create criminal profiles and identify suspect behaviour, enabling them to determine where a suspect vehicle is located, and effectively pursue and prevent crime.
