Automatic Numberplate Recognition (ANPR) are camera based systems that capture and can interpret vehicle number plates without human intervention.
There are various ways of implementing Automatic Number Plate Recognition, some systems require a dedicated camera and server whilst there are also systems that can utilise existing cameras alongside cloud technology to remotely interpret the images.
Uses for Automatic Number Plate Recognition include public car parks, private car parks, private roads, toll roads, petrol stations to name a few. Upon driving through a controlled entrance the vehicle number plate will be captured and added to the system history. Number plates can be whitelisted or blacklisted dependant upon the requirement the barriers could open or close or a general alert can be sent from the system.
