Covert Taxi Microphone System

A safety system was required by a regional taxi organization in order to help in incidents of attack or theft. A foot switch enabled a radio transmitter which sent an emergency call, in data form, to the Taxi Base and enabled the ultra-sensitive microphone within the vehicle so that all voice communication could be heard by the Dispatcher. The system also diverted all other radio traffic to other channels and allowed a time window of thirty (30) seconds for calls to be cancelled in the event of accidental activation.


A typical scenario for which the system was designed was that upon arrival at the final travel destination, a Policeman would be waiting to greet the travelling customer, and Police could determine what action was appropriate depending upon the nature of the conversation and actions taken by the customer.
