Sensys Gatso

Heritage | A true innovator in traffic enforcement

We are proud of our long-standing heritage as a true innovator

Our heritage

Gatso was founded in 1958 by former racing driver Maurice Gatsonides; sports enthusiast, rally champion and entrepreneur. He invented the first speed camera to measure track speeds and lap and finish times and quickly realized he also could use this technology to improve road safety. He introduced the world’s first speed measuring device and the first speed camera, the Gatsometer, in 1964 and Gatso was born. Gatso has its office in Haarlem, the Netherlands.

Sensys was founded in 1982 as a development company. The company expanded in 1987 when the Swedish police requested technology that could meet stringent requirements. Sensys won the procurement process, and they have been supplying systems to the Swedish Transport Administration ever since. Sensys changed its strategy in 2001 by accelerating development and starting to sell systems outside Sweden.

Sensys acquired Gatso in 2015, and the Sensys Gatso Group was born. Sensys Gatso Group is now the leading global provider of traffic safety solutions delivering systems, software and services primarily for automated traffic enforcement.
