When it comes to driving without interruption, the latest defense systems from Handcrafted Auto Marine and Off-Road in Chandler will beat even the toughest laser-based radar guns. Unlike an early warning from a windshield- or mirror-mounted portable radar detector about the use of a radar gun, there is no way to slow down in time if one of these devices gives you a warning that you have been targeted by laser. The accuracy and speed at which these devices operate make them perfect for officers at speed traps, and only a custom-installed laser defense system will offer reliable protection.
How Does Speed Lidar Work?
Police lidar guns transmit a very narrow beam of infrared light that pulses at a specific frequency. A separate infrared LED receiver monitors the target to measure the amount of time it takes each pulse to reflect to the gun. In less than 350 milliseconds, the lidar gun can display a vehicle’s distance from the officer and its speed.
A second “feature” of lidar is its accuracy. An officer can target a single vehicle in relatively heavy traffic, even at a distance of 1,000 feet. Lidar systems with integrated cameras will photograph the vehicle and overlay its current speed on the image. This evidence is difficult to overcome should you wish to contest a speeding ticket.
Defending Against Laser-based Radar
If a portable radar detector with a laser sensor alerts you that your speed has been measured, well, it’s already too late. Our lidar defense systems use laser transceivers and advanced computer processing to transmit a scrambled pulse pattern that prevents the lidar gun from taking a reading. With the gun inoperative, you have time to slow down to a safe speed, cancel the signal transmission and let the officer measure your vehicle’s speed again. When executed quickly and smoothly, you’ll be able to carry on your way without interruption.
The Importance of Proper Laser Defense System Installation
While it takes state-of-the-art technology to create the scrambled laser pulses, ensuring that the system functions reliably takes expert installation. Our team works with each client to create a specific configuration that will provide protection based on the size of their vehicle and whether or not they may travel into a state that uses the much-maligned Dragoneye Speed lidar guns. Dragoneye guns are much more difficult to confuse and often require the installation of additional sensors on the vehicle.
Once your radar detector and laser defense system has been designed, our expert technicians begin the process of integrating the system into the vehicle. Each laser sensor must be aligned perfectly to provide accurate and reliable long-range protection. An alignment error of just a few degrees may result in a measurable reduction in performance.
Of course, we’ll consult with each client as to where they want any displays or controls installed in the vehicle to create a system that’s easy to understand and use.
