A software firm has developed an Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR; a.k.a LPR; a.k.a. ANPR) application that can run on Samsung Techwin’s Open Platform WiseNetIII cameras and domes. The firm is Arteco, the Italian maker of Video Event Management software (VEMS).
The company’s ALPR application has been developed for access control purposes, such as use in airports, sea ports, car parks, distribution centers, industrial parks, and critical infrastructure environments where there is a need for control of the movement of vehicles.
It is supported by Arteco-Logic NEXT VEMS and is able to read license plates at a rate of over one every two seconds with vehicles moving at speeds of up to 50km/h (30mph), it is claimed.
The ALPR can store JPEG images remotely via FTP on a server with the JPEG filename containing the plate string, date and time of capture.
Via an interface it can be configured for event triggering, alerts and notifications whenever pre-defined plate numbers are read.
Samsung Techwin’s Open Platform WiseNetIII DSP chipset is at the heart of the company’s latest of 1.3-, 2-, and 3-megapixel high definition video cameras.
The processing power of the WiseNetIII DSP chipset also enables it to run multiple edge-based applications such as Arteco ALPR, as well as other video analytics such as facial recognition and people counting, which can be downloaded in a similar way to adding Apps to a Smartphone.Source: professionalsecurity.co.uk
