INTERNATIONAL AUTOMATIC NUMBER PLATE RECOGNITION FROM ANY IP CAMERA
Digitpol's ANPR software is designed to read vehicle license plates from any IP camera, any country and at any traffic speed. Digitpol can carry out recognition from any IP camera or public camera and provide a detailed analysis dashboard for data analytics. Digitpol provides a 24/7h service for ANPR Analytics.
Automatic number-plate recognition is a technology that uses optical character recognition on images to read vehicle registration plates to create vehicle location data. It can use existing closed-circuit television, road-rule enforcement cameras, or cameras specifically designed for the task. ANPR is used by police forces around the world for law enforcement purposes, including to check if a vehicle is registered or licensed. It is also used for electronic toll collection on pay-per-use roads and as a method of cataloguing the movements of traffic, for example by highways agencies.
Automatic number-plate recognition can be used to store the images captured by the cameras as well as the text from the license plate, with some configurable to store a photograph of the driver. Systems commonly use infrared lighting to allow the camera to take the picture at any time of day or night. ANPR technology must take into account plate variations from place to place.
European ANPR Command Centre
Digitpol's ANPR Command Centre is a Centralised European ANPR Platform to combat the problem of Stolen Motor Vehicles and Plant Machinery which remains across Europe. In 2018 Digitpol took the initiative to develop a modern and unique prevention tool, the ANPR project. The concept allows for IP cameras to Digitpol for recognition and with API and AI, to check data in global databases for cross reference, the check on licence plates or signage takes approximately 400ms and the operations, clients and operations teams are alerted instantly.
When a positive match of a stolen object is identified, the command centre also sees the instant data such as licence plate, picture and the time. Action is then taken by authorities to recover the stolen object. Digitpol works in cooperation with a Public-Partnership.
