Motion Imaging Recording System (MIRS): Final ReportAuthor/Presenter: Weinholzer, Robert C.
This report documents the study and testing of a technology designed to detect and record violations of certain traffic control devices in Minnesota. The system utilizes one of several detection methods to determine the occurrence of a specific vehicle violation, and then activates a camera to photograph the vehicle… as this study did not contain any aspect of active enforcement, a less threatening appellation was adopted. The system was called the Motion Imaging Recording System (MIRS) (as opposed to photo radar or photo enforcement). Part IV deals with work zone speeding and Part V covers work zone speeding equipment.
