Automated license plate recognition
License plate recognition
Reliable license plate recognition (LPR), also referred to as automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), has traditionally been costly and only relevant for a limited number of applications.
The rapid development of IP cameras and deep learning now allows for wider use of automatic LPR solutions. Depending on your needs, they can help to increase everyday efficiency, service levels and security.
This is how it works
Our LPR solutions consists of a purpose-built camera with pre-installed Axis or partner analytics that runs either on the camera, in the cloud or on a server. The analytics automatically captures the license plate in real time, compares or adds it to a list and then takes appropriate action such as opening a gate, adding a cost, or generating an alert.
Depending on surrounding light, the solution may require cameras with built-in IR-light or additional light sources for optimal performance.
Wide range of applications
Automatic LPR is a valuable solution for multiple applications, including:
- Parking management where it facilitates – or even automates – payment, entry and exit
- Toll roads, to enable free-flow through toll plazas
- Airport traffic management, to ensure that only authorized vehicles can access the taxi / public transport lanes
- Access control, where the gate is only opened for authorized vehicles and all visiting vehicles automatically are registered
- Vehicle alerts, where the solution provides an automatic alert when any of the vehicles on a watch list passes by
