Here are two pictures of an in-car video system here in Holland. The first one is a shot of the interior of a cab with the monitor installed on the dashboard. The second picture is a real live picture of a robbery going on. The perpatrator was arrested due to this "mugshot", convicted and sentenced sentenced. The (lady) driver had severe wounds on her hands because of trying to take the knife off her throat during the attack.

The system has 5 parts.

I did not make pictures of the camera, the footpedal or proccesing unit because they are just square items with no special things attached to them.

The System is designed by a Amsterdam taxidriver who also was robbed several years ago, ( Willem Visser) and with help from a electronic company called Detec, was able to produce this system in large quantities. At present time hundreds of systems are soled to taxicompany's in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium.
