License Plate Recognition (LPR)
License plate recognition is an integral part of the automatic parking control system, adding significant value by providing the critical information and real-time data required for identification, access control, and billing of both casual customers and subscribers.
The LPR smart camera is designed to operate in outdoor and indoor environments, and is typically found in the parking lot’s entry and exit lanes. The LPR system detects and processes the image, and sends the vehicle number to the parking control system for use in combination with real-time data.
When entering the parking lot, the vehicle number is recognized and checked against a database to identify the client as a casual customer, subscriber, or invited guest. From entry to exit, the system performs automated billing calculations, determining whether to permit entry and exit. It updates parking control regarding cars that are permitted or blocked.
All data is stored and can be retrieved at any time for monitoring and issuing reports.
