AUGUST 20--Nestor Inc. (Providence, RI; www.nestor.com) has announced that subsidiary Nestor Traffic Systems Inc. (NTS) has entered into an exclusive distributorship agreement with Vitronic (www.vitronic.com), a German-based corporation that provides solutions for factory and industrial automation, quality inspection, logistics, and traffic-management systems. Under the terms of the agreement, NTS will have exclusive rights to market and sell Vitronic's PoliScan speed mobile and PoliScan speed throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico, for an initial term of five years, subject to minimum annual sales goals.

PoliScan speed is a system for digital speed detection and recording. In contrast to conventional measures such as radar, light barriers, and piezo-section, a complex installation and calibration of the system at the measurement site is not necessary. PoliScan speed can either be used as a mobile or stationary installation. An additional feature is the ability to simultaneously record and measure several vehicles in parallel lanes. Thus ambiguities and measurement errors can be reliably avoided. The system uses a high-resolution digital camera for documentation of the speeding offense, including pictures of the license plate, an overview picture, as well as the image of the driver where required.

William B. Danzell, Nestor chief executive officer, stated, "As a company that is focused on providing innovative systems for traffic safety, this product is a perfect complement to our existing CrossingGuard system. Our initial marketing efforts will target school zones and construction zones.

Vitronic GmbH is a European machine-vision company, founded in 1984. Since 1999 Vitronic Machine Vision Ltd. has been present in Louisville, KY. The company provides machine-vision ID-solutions, traffic telematics, factory automation quality inspection, and human body-scanning products and solutions.
