You may ask why companies should use this technology. The answer is very simple: to automate the processes and be able to use them as a service. As well as to keep up with the times, because in 2022 customers demand digital solutions.
A license plate recognition system (LPR Sys) is a digital tool that uses high-resolution cameras to capture license plates and convert them into text or a number. It allows tracking vehicles and people across a large area. It is widely used in parking lots, on roads, at stadiums, or in security services. It requires little maintenance, is easy to install, and does not need skilled operators.
This type of system can recognize hundreds of plates per minute and process much more information than a human observer can ever do. The image recognition software can also process more than one image at a time, so it can manage records of multiple objects: cars, people, and so on.
It can detect if the object has entered or left the zone, if it has exceeded the speed limit, if it is stolen or was involved in a crime, and much more.
It is more precise than an employee because it does not make mistakes. It is impartial and it does not take days off or go home sick. And it has no feelings or opinions about what you do, as long as you pay it enough to provide its services and keep it running.
This type of system is most commonly used to identify vehicles passing through a toll booth, in parking lots and garages, on roads or highways, at border crossings and ports, at airports or train stations, at sports stadiums and events, in security services such as surveillance or security guards, or in anti-theft systems such as car alarm systems or vehicle immobilizers.
The commonest application of image recognition software is in security guards to track vehicles entering and leaving an area. As far as possible from the target zone (building entrance), these cameras are placed on elevated poles in order to cover an extensive view of the entrance. They are typically designed to monitor both vehicle traffic to an area and pedestrian traffic in an effort to detect prohibited behavior such as loitering, loitering near parked vehicles without justification for doing so, trespassing into a restricted zone without valid reason for doing so, harassment of people entering or exiting an area without legitimate reason for doing so, and so one.
The information provided by LPR systems is used by parking lots and garages
License plate recognition involves capturing photographic video or images of license plates, whereby they are processed by a series of algorithms that are able to provide an alphanumeric conversion of the captured license plate images into a text entry.
