Automatic Number Plate Recognition

ANPR camera systems used to be exclusive to Border Agencies and the Police. In todays world we are now able to install ANPR camera systems for the commercial and public sector to manage, monitor and display ANPR data for car parks, municipal sites, Town and City Centre as well as our relationship with law enforcement while extending our market into garages, journey time systems, road surveys and ANPR Access Control for gates and barriers.

Number Plate Reading is a commonly used technology, the reading and storing of metadata captured from passing vehicles. This data can be used to enable easy searching of recorded CCTV footage as well as building an understanding of traffic flow through a site, housing estate or road works.

There are ANPR systems that can also encrypt licence plate information and store this information in a format that can be used for traffic surveys where the original source data number plate information is not in a format that could be used to identify individual vehicles.

When considering any system that stores additional Metadata for example colour of vehicle, type & make and registration mark it is important to make sure proper consideration has been made to the security of this data, data retention policies, information requests and data access policies.
