LICENSE PLATE
RECOGNITION (LPR)

With its advanced matching logic, Plate ID LPR™ is able read
a vehicle’s license plate (regardless of license-numbering
system used), and then link the information to database or
multiple databases. These databases can be tailored to fit the
user’s specific needs.

Plate ID

With an average of 695 household burglaries per day, 203 business burglaries per
day, and around 150 cars stolen every day in South Africa, it’s not hard to
understand why LPR technology is so important in our context.

Businesses, residential estates and the public sector are already reaping the benefits of using LPR solutions.

LPR is extremely helpful to law enforcement agencies as they identify stolen vehicles and track vehicles during an investigation.

Plate ID integrates, as a standard, with both the Unicode (SAPS) and SAICB vehicle-of-interest databases, and every vehicle that passes a Plate ID LPR camera is interrogated against these databases. Additional databases can be added at clients’ request.

Data from LPR can also be useful in predicting criminal behavior. For example, a criminal looking for a victim or casing a property might circle a block repeatedly at a slow speed. The LPR system alerts law enforcement to enter the area to act as a deterrent before crime happens.

LPR is perfect for building a stolen/suspicious vehicle database on
public roads or as an access control mechanism for private properties,
including mall parking lots and residential complexes.

Plate ID LPR software can be used for the following applications :

Alerting immediately on Vehicles of Interest (criminal or otherwise)

Regulating access to restricted areas, such as residential security estates or business parks

Parking subscription at malls or office towers

Control at petrol stations (protection against customers driving away without paying for petrol). Using negative lists and third-party integrations, the system can trigger an alarm if a blacklisted license plate is recognised at any station in the chain

And so much more.

Plate ID Features

Some of the Plate ID’s specific features include:

Infra-red for
night-time identification.

A filter that reduces glare from
headlights and the WDR PRO
(Wide Dynamic Range) to prevent
dark or overexposed footage.

The possibility of obtaining an
overview of the scene in addition
to the number plate.

Scene
Overview

Obtaining an overview of the scene in addition
to the number plate is critical in allowing one
to gather evidence about size, shape and
colour of the vehicle, and even driver
appearance. This is especially important not
only in tracking the vehicle based on its other
physical features should the driver change the
plate, but also in identifying the driver.

Application Arenas

Video-analytic software has radically transformed the potential uses of surveillance
technology. The number and type of functions have become dramatically deeper and more
varied. These are some of the key application arenas in the local and regional context.
