DIGITPOL - ANPR Project

Vehicle Crime Prevention & Intelligence

Digitpol's has developed a custom ANPR solution for vehicle crime prevention and recovery. The system is a revolution in ANPR technology, this modern system uses rapid image processing layered with AI detection and all data is viewable remotely in real time. The project was launches in August 2018 as a pilot and is now developed and available to Law Enforcement, Insurance & Leasing firms.

The ANPR Project

The problem of Stolen Motor Vehicles and Plant Machinery remains across Europe. In 2018 Digitpol took the initiative to develop a modern and unique prevention tool, the ANPR project. The concept allows for cameras to send data to a databases for cross reference, the check on licence plates or signage takes approximately 400ms and when there is a HIT, Digitpol is alerted instantly and action is then taken by authorities to seize the stolen object. Digitpol operates this project in cooperation with the Police, Customs, Road Transport Authority and in Public-Private Partnership with private firms such as leasing, rental, financial and storage firms.

ANPR Patrols, Digitpol's custom built ANPR patrol vehicles are connected to stolen vehicle databases, the scanned plates are checked against different databases and the answer is given in 400 milliseconds. The ANPR patrolling is carried out without any public confrontation as our vehicles are equipped with covert cameras. Checks are carried out while driving through cities, at a road side or at patrol parking areas. When a stolen vehicle is detected, we first confirm it is stolen by an internal check with our back office and at the Police, when the plate is “Live” as wanted then the Police will take correct action, often to seize the vehicle. The scanned data is deleted if there is no HIT.

The problem with Stolen vehicles is on the increase since 2010, the German Bundeskriminalamt (BKA) uses the 2011 figures provided by the German association of insurance companies for the total economic damage on stolen motor vehicles: almost 260 million Euros. This amount represents only stolen vehicles (and not, for example, vehicles which are lost through fraud). The total economic damage is an increase of almost 1% compared to 2010 and a 19% increase compared to the average total amount of the previous 5 years. Moreover, the average individual claim was higher. This could be caused by an increased market value of the average car stolen or an indication of a trend in which motor vehicles with a higher value are targeted.

Research & Development

Digitpol's ANPR works in cooperation with the Police, Customs, Road Transport Authority and in Public-Private Partnership with private firms such as leasing, rental, financial and storage firms. Digitpol operates ANPR cameras and ANPR vehicles across Europe.

Digitpol's custom built ANPR patrol vehicles are connected to stolen vehicle databases, the scanned plates are checked against different databases and the answer is given in 400 milliseconds. The ANPR patrolling is carried out without any public confrontation as our vehicles are equipped with covert cameras.

The scanned data is deleted if there is no HIT.

Status

We developed ANPR software and built specialized vehicles equipped with custom ANPR system. Vehicle plates are checked in 400ms and results are viewable in real-time from the command team Netherlands, we connected to several Police agencies in Europe.

  • 2018 - Our teams conducted checks on highways and borders across Europe checking suspected vehicles and cargo. The ANPR system alerts the driver with results in 400ms.
  •  2019 - We aim to expand the number of ANPR cameras into key trafficking routes and expand the number of operations.
  • 2020 - We developed a mobile app, advanced the vehicle ANPR and developed a unique cloud database that connects by API to vehicle registration authorities.

Deployment

Our vehicles are equipped with ANPR, Tetra radios and 4G Radio Networks. The system is a vehicle to cloud based unique ANPR system that runs from mobile cameras. The data and pictures are viewable in realtime by APP. This is the 1st Pan European-Wide ANPR for Law Enforcement, Insurance, Rental and Leasing firms. Digitpol has deployed ANPR cars to the Balkans and static cameras across East Europe. The project has agreements with European Police agencies. In 2020 we have signed agreements with Ports Authorities, Cargo handlers, Customs, Police and Police Forces
