NPR (Number Plate Camera) – By GLOBAL IT ZONE

Due to increase in crime in city areas and on highway the authority or government has to focus on vehicles moving on the road. And the best way to get information about particular vehicles is to record it’s number. But problem with normal CCTV system is of “frame rate”. Normal CCTV Camera have maximum Frame Rate of 20fps. But to read and record vehicles number of a fast moving car or Bus we need a camera having Frame Rate around 40-55 fps.

A Normal CCTV camera setup consists of camera, wire, DVR, Storage and Display. But a NPR Camera setup consists of camera + NPR Software. We also need a PC so that we can install the software and use it after connecting the NPR Camera to the computer or the local network. Price of a NPR Camera starts from 2.5 Lakhs. These type of product also need expert technician or Engineer.

Reliable license plate recognition (LPR) has traditionally been costly and only relevant for a limited number of applications.

The rapid development of IP cameras now allows for wider use of automatic LPR solutions. Depending on your needs, they can help to increase everyday efficiency, service levels or security.

 

 

Automatic recognition and actions

Our LPR solutions are based on an Axis camera and partner software that runs either on the camera or on a server. It automatically captures the license plate in real time, compares or adds it to a pre-defined list and then takes appropriate action such as opening a gate, adding a cost, or generating an alert.

Depending on surrounding light, the solution may require cameras with built-in IR-light or additional light sources for optimal performance.

       Wide range of applications

Automatic LPR is a valuable solution for multiple applications, including:

  • Parking management where it facilitates – or even automates – payment, entry and exit
  • Toll roads, to enable free-flow through toll plazas
  • Airport traffic management, to ensure that only authorized vehicles can access the taxi / public transport lanes
  • Access control, where the gate is only opened for authorized vehicles and all visiting vehicles automatically are registered
  • Vehicle alerts, where the solution provides an automatic alert when any of the vehicles on a watch list passes by
