Automatic identification of vehicle registration information

  • Chapel St - Banner

ANPR or Automatic Number Plate Recognition System (also called LPR for Licence Plate Recognition) is a computerised system of identifying vehicles in real time. 

Cameras are mounted statically at roadsides or mobile cameras can be installed on authorised vehicles to photograph the number plates of passing cars. Photographs are digitally enhanced to isolate number plate information which is then captured through OCR (Optical Character Recognition) and sent to vehicle registration databases to instantly confirm ownership details. 

The technology can be used to confirm vehicles authorised to use parking facilities as well as identifying offending motorists for infringement issuing.
