Hampshire Constabulary and Thames Valley Police in the UK Trial Acusensus Technology

August 1, 2023

Hampshire Constabulary and Thames Valley Police in the UK have recently completed a trial of the Acusensus Heads Up solution, using AI cameras to identify distracted drivers and those not wearing a seatbelt.

Partners, AECOM, operated the van based system at locations across the two force areas, identifying hundreds of cases where these dangerous behaviours were taking place.

Twelve police regions have now trialled the Acusensus technology and three new trailer based systems have arrived in the UK ahead of the next phase of trials.

Geoff Collins CEng, UK General Manager for Acusensus, said “The ‘Heads Up’ system is a perfect example for how AI technology can be used to improve road safety. Distracted drivers are a significant hazard for everyone, whilst those not wearing a seatbelt are far more likely to be killed in a collision – the Acusensus technology can help to change behaviours, reducing the casualty toll on our roads.”
