A number plate reading device has cameras that can provide high quality images that show the number plate of a traveling vehicle inside the picture and software that extrapolates the number from the image.
For ANPR, Automatic Number Plate Recognition, it is necessary to have highly technological, professional devices that can automatically read and recognize the number plates of cars, motorbikes and various vehicles in circulation, both Italian and foreign.
The number plate recognition and reading system can be used for access control too, for example for:
The number plate identification system is based on a camera for plate recognition that communicates with the XAtlas access control system on the Ethernet network using TCP/IP protocols.
XAtlas can manage and store information recorded by each number plate reading camera. Using the software it is possible to manage special lists of authorized vehicles (white list) or unauthorized vehicles (black list).
Data storage is unlimited and it is possible to export the data to csv format at any time. All the saved images can be exported to jpeg format. Rules can also be configured for the automatic sending of images via email, or interfacing with third-party systems.
System components: camera, OCR, IR illuminator for night-time vision. Compatible with XAtlas without need for optional software modules or further hardware sensors.
