ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition)
Engaging With 'Smart Cities'
Bespoke Affordable Solutions
Using optical character recognition on images to read the license plates on vehicles by software and high resolution cameras.
ANPR can be used to store the images captured by the cameras as well as the license plate number in text. Systems are able to use infrared lighting to allow the camera to take the picture at any time of the day. The ANPR technology NIS provides is plate specific to New Zealand and a proven technology.
Best Control Options:
Integrated with a range of the best parking management and access control systems operational in New Zealand.
CARMEN® is the brand name of ARHs technology. It refers to the CARMEN® software family that includes several ANPR/LPR software versions including CARMEN® Freeflow and CARMEN® Parking suitable for different application environments. CARMEN® offers a flexible API that ensures easy integration into any type of security system. Used in 120 countries, many cross board control points in Europe, deployed successfully in New Zealand for New Zealand number plates.
CARMEN® Freeflow provides automatic recognition software for various intelligent traffic systems, security and any access control systems.
CARMEN® Parking provides automatic recognition software for parking, access control and similar ow speed applications where cars are slowed or stopped by barriers.
CARRIDA is the brand name of Vision Components® ANPR/LPR solutions. It refers to an ANPR/LPR software engine, a camera hardware package and Parking Management Tool. See case study.

Control room "viewer" feature - automatically generated by the software for manually editing plates which can be tagged as "misread" or passed through by the system
Email notification on specific events/queries, i.e., non responsive software and specific logged transactions for event notification
IP notication "plugins" available to a nominated PDA device
Alarm Reports - general statistics, e.g., triggers on odd plates and misread plates
Event Reports - Date/Time/Plate - the lane assigned to the plate either on entry or exit
Customised Reports - Specific data (OEM requirement) format variations such as export to Excel
Generation of folders for multiple images such as rental car profile images to assess vehicle condition and flagged to the number plate
Database can be either distributed or centralised depending on the complexities required
Flexible software integration via external systems via API.
From one camera to many, extremely efficient design, limited only by processing power, and network design.
Can leverage off existing IP networks efficiently, won’t overload with video traffic.
