Real time recognition for traffic at all speeds
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)
ANPR, also called License plate recognition (LPR), uses optical character recognition to scan plates at high speed. The software isolates and captures vehicle plates and logs registration marks with time, date and GPS. It interprets and transfers this information from analogue to digital and then cross-reference letters and numbers with predetermined databases to enable automatic alerts for specific vehicles. With improved cameras, ANPR can now offer complete vehicle recognition and a clear image of front seat occupants. When powered by infrared, license plate cameras can read vehicle registration marks (VRMs) day or night.
License plate scanners can secure an area and optimize traffic flow through toll collection points with automated payment readers. On highways police license plate scanners reduce speeding and reckless driving. Networks can be built cover thousands of lanes, with automated license plate readers (ALPR) now able to capture data from a number of cars at once, all traveling at high speeds.
APNR programs offer seamless integration to readers and can work alongside programs like Facial Recognition, Motion Detection and Access Control. Differentiations between products include, vehicle speed, lane width and resolution, low-light performance, accuracy and ease of integration and zoom capability.
