Cisternino Municipality relies on Axis cameras to combat vehicles breaking the Highway Code

Cisternino’s administration chose the world leader in network video for countering an increasingly widespread phenomenon on the roads of this tourist area in the Province of Brindisi

“The Talos system is really easy to use, license plate recognition is excellent, and the pictures are sharp, full of detail and correspond to what the highway police see on patrol.” Dr. Antonio Modugno, Cisternino local police chief.


To safeguard the road safety of its citizens, the Municipal Administration of Cisternino (BR) decided to combat situations of vehicles being driven without insurance or not in observance of the rules of the Highway Code. To achieve this objective, the progressive smart city of Cisternino decided to employ a computer system and the best technologies in the field of video surveillance.


The Talos software, designed by Bitsolution, an Axis technology partner, is capable of providing local police with a mobile computer system that, through the use of Axis cameras, such as AXIS Q1765-LE PT Mount, reads the license plates of passing vehicles and checks if they are insured. The innovative system sends information to the tablets or smartphones provided to the patrols, enabling them to promptly stop offending vehicles. The software does not require type-approval or ministerial certification, as notification is carried out directly by the local police.


The adopted solution offers a fundamental tool for countering drivers breaking the law on the one hand and for protecting them from the menace of illegal vehicles in circulation on the other. In addition, it brings significant benefits to the townsfolk, as it transmits a positive image of local government and contributes to increasing the municipal fund for road infrastructure development and maintenance.
