Copland is a MS Windows software application which provides management of violation data produced by D-Cop outstation. Copland provides the ability to download violations via LAN, WAN, Internet or wireless using a laptop computer. The violation images, video clips and data can be viewed by an Operator and if appropriate, can be passed to a ticket office system. All communications between Copland and D-cop are encrypted.
Providing a network link is established successfully, D-cop sends the uncollected violations list to Copland. Once downloaded in the Copland, violations are sorted by site.
Copland user interface is designed to have a simple operation but to clearly display all the relevant information. It’s equipped with a facility to allow the backup of database and key files. Also, all keys event that have occurred are secured in the Audit log. For example, if a violation is passed to the ticket office system, then an entry is added to the log to record this action. The log entry will also indicate the violation concerned and if appropriate the operator identity.
THE ARE THREE LEVELS OF ACCESS TO COPLAND
- Operator Level: Provides for basic processing violations
- Supervisor Level: This level has the ability to create and delete accounts (except maintenance level). Supervisor level is required to perform certain actions such as making violations as not to be prosecuted
- Maintenance Level: Can delete password, load new keys, delete unit log etc
Copland provides basic fault management facilities. When a D-cop installation reports a fault, the fault is passed to the fault manager. Each fault has a status section in which the operator can acknowledge receipt of the faults.
Copland can also connect to the PNC or DVLA system to provide automatic retrieval of keeper details. This can proceed once the operator has confirmed the registration number presented in the image. The data retrieval from PNC will be presented alongside the image so that vehicle manufacturer and colour can be checked. The details may then be passed to a ticket office system or to the local document package so that the appropriate forms can be printed.
The new version contains a brand new feature which allows the operator to upload the violation images on Intertraff website. Violation notice mailed to drivers now contains a unique userID and password. This information is used by the driver to login on Intertraff web site for viewing his/her violation pictures.
Due to privacy issues, in most countries, the pictures of the infringement cannot be attached to the violation notice. This new feature offers to Municipalities, a tool to allow driver to remotely displaying the images of the infringement using the web.
