Automatic Number Plate Recognition operates by using a specialist camera to capture an image from reflective European vehicle license plates.

A software front end converts this image into a character string and uses the data in the way that the operational environment requires. This can vary from timing how long a vehicle has been in and out of an area, to how many times per day, week or month that a particular vehicle has entered an area. The software can trigger the opening of barriers or gates, the sounding of alarms, a virtually endless array of functionality can be achieved according to the purpose of the installation.

Taken in its most simple form, attached to a recording system, a specialist camera can capture high quality images of vehicle registration plates and store them to an attached digital recorder, allowing the client to review the recordings in the event of an incident.

We only use market leading system ANPR components, proposed at reasonable costs.
