SEA secures contract to develop traffic enforcement systems further for TfL

Published 9th November 2016

Cohort plc company SEA has been awarded orders by Transport for London (TfL) to further develop and provide ongoing support of its Digital Traffic Enforcement System (DTES) and to develop and support a Parking Enforcement Solution (PES) Mobile Application.

The combined contracts are worth in excess of £6.5m and include ten years of support for both

SEA originally developed the fixed camera DTES system, including key software development and
hardware provision, before it entered service with TfL in 2009. Over 800 cameras are employed for
civil traffic enforcement purposes on the TfL road network to help minimise journey times and aid
traffic flow, capturing incidents including bus lane, yellow box junction and banned manoeuvre

PES is a brand new development to replace an end of life on-street enforcement system based on
older feature phone technology.

PES is an on-street enforcement system which is smart-phone enabled, and designed to be used by a diverse range of users who are out and about on the street. SEA is partnered in its provision with
Mubaloo, an award winning mobile developer with seven years of experience developing over 250
bespoke apps for all platforms.

SEA will develop the PES backend systems and web interface which will integrate fully with the onstreet app. By bringing together SEA’s wide ranging experience in the traffic enforcement domain with Mubaloo’s ability to create highly innovative and productive mobile apps, the end to end system will enable TfL’s ongoing on-street enforcement operations to remain effective and efficient.

By contracting a single provider to deliver both the DTES and PES systems, TfL has achieved
efficiency savings in a number of areas, for example through the shared use of infrastructure
between the two systems. SEA will provide full end to end support for both systems, ensuring that
very high levels of system availability are achieved throughout the contract.

SEA Managing Director Steve Hill said:

“I am delighted that SEA continues to be involved in this
important TfL programme. The addition of the PES system to work with DTES is an exciting

He added:

“Efficiency is a key factor in the on-going development of our systems, with software that
is intuitive to use and key parts automated to provide an efficient workflow and reduce incident
review time.”
