About Kestrel Workbench
The K2 series represents a shift away from inflexible and often basic modes of operation for vehicle speed detection systems. The OEM has little room to manoeuvre with even the smallest of interfacing tasks or slight changes in operation often requiring additional hardware or new firmware to create a workable solution. The cost of this exercise is not only measured in time and effort but the additional financial burden that can often turn profitable contracts into a nightmare.
Our response to this very common scenario is Kestrel Workbench, a simple and intuitive interface to control how Kestrel K2 devices work. Our software offers complete OEM flexibility in hardware configurations combined with user definable application software. Workbench allows control of every aspect of how the radar and overall system behaves in response to detection. The OEM integrator can for the first time define the actual application running on the radar platform.
The K2 series of radars, along with Workbench software represents many years of research and development in order to overcome all the traditional barriers to flexibility (fixed function hardware and limited modes of operation). This new approach in the field of radar detection uses the concept of a virtual machine.
Kestrel Workbench frees the product from the vendor imposed limitations and instead offers our customers a whole new world of possibilities enabling them to create their own bespoke solutions for a wide range of applications.
Learn how Kestrel Workbench sets itself apart from other software solutions.
Kestrel Workbench uses a modern component based design, this means that the application is not a single entity but is instead built from interlocking modules which have a common interface. This has a number of design advantages:
Easy to add or remove software features.
Installer template included
Future Proof Architecture
Allows custom features to be developed
Future SDK will allow OEMs to produce their own custom software features
Integrated Development Environment
Develop and test radar applications in a single software tool. Kestrel Workbench includes a full editor and compiler for applications and a simulation environment that allows the application to be developed and tested independently of any hardware.
Full application development environment
Project based applications
Full simulation environment
Develop applications before physical hardware is available
Modifications to functionality can be achieved by simply updating or replacing the OEM application.
Graph Generation and Reports
Kestrel Workbench can import data from radars and produce reports and charts from datasets with ease.
Create PDF reports with charts inside the software
Comprehensive report options allow you to visualise important data
Excel support means that data & charts can be saved as an Excel workbook which allows further analysis or inclusion into Word and Powerpoint documents.
Components are used to provide reporting and this allows the reporting to be further customised and allows for additional report types to be added
Corporate Branding allows you to fully integrate Kestrel Workbench into your product line and company image
Device configuration is quick, intuitive and easy.
Multi-Language support for OEM applications is built into the K2 and Kestrel Workbench software as standard. Additionally we are able to work with OEMs to add translations into the Workbench software itself.
