Barrier-Free Parking With ANPR Technology: A Real Option?

Many cities globally continue to become more congested, driving increased investment into off-street parking facilities. In recent years, automated number plate recognition (ANPR) [aka LPR] cameras and software have started to be used as part of the overall solution which also includes barriers, payment machines, and loop detectors. The main use of ANPR equipment is to alleviate issues related to ticket payments, where a license plate can be looked up in the system to verify entry times, or for security purposes.

MESSOA Introduces Industry’s First 3MP IP License Plate Recognition Camera

By Brianna Crandall , February 17, 2014—International surveillance technology manufacturer MESSOA Technologies recently announced the launch of the LPR606, which the company says is the industry’s first three-megapixel (3MP) Internet protocol (IP) bullet license plate recognition/automatic number plate recognition (LPR/ANPR) network camera. The newest addition to MESSOA’s existing IP traffic camera lineup was specifically engineered for overview and access-control LPR applications at car parks, toll booths, gated communities, and a variety of low-speed environments. Designed with access control in mind, the LPR606 is suitable for applications of capturing vehicles with reflective license plates traveling at moderate speeds up to 60km/h. The 3MP resolution of the LPR606 reportedly allows for a much wider view and more details compared to one with video graphics array (VGA), covering up to two traffic lanes with just a single camera. Not only does it reduce the total cost of ownership, the camera delivers much enhanced image quality, which ensures plate recognition results are up to high-level standards, says MESSOA. The LPR606 is equipped with a 30m infrared (IR) light-emitting diode (LED) unit that generates the adequate, even illumination needed for high-megapixel images at difficult lighting conditions. Thanks to MESSOA’s low-light expertise and the camera’s LPR-oriented specifications, such as configurable shutter speed, iris, and illumination control, the LPR606 is able to deliver unparalleled imaging performance that yields superior license plate recognition rates, claims the company. Deployment-wise, the three-axis cable management bracket and external lens adjustment significantly facilitates installation of this outdoor-ready LPR/ANPR camera. The LPR606 […]

VIVOTEK Cameras Ensure Public Rental Housing Security In Hong Kong

Published on 27 Jan, 2014 Vivotek cameras provide high-standard security for Kai Tak Development VIVOTEK cameras provide information for identifying vehicle licence plate numbers in outdoor and indoor spaces Background Cheung Hing Electronic Electrical Engineering Co., Ltd. , a system integrator in Hong Kong working with VIVOTEK distributor EverBest Technologies , recently completed implementation of a surveillance system for ensuring public rental housing security for Kai Tak Development, which is a huge and highly complex development project planned by the local government in Hong Kong. The customer, Kai Tak Development, requested a surveillance system that can be used to monitor the indoor and outdoor spaces of a new public rental housing community, including areas such as the entrance, the main door, aisles, stairs, exits and lifts. The system was expected to ensure residents’ security by acquiring comprehensive environmental information. Thus, effective surveillance of public areas is of paramount importance. A full range and high quality megapixel video surveillance system has been considered as the best solution. Solution To achieve this goal, Cheung Hing Electronic Electrical Engineering installed a total of 368 VIVOTEK cameras in six models: eighty-two FD8136 , forty-five IP8335H, one hundred and forty-three FD8335H, thirty-four SD8121 , nine IP8152 , and fifty-five VS8102 . Features as mini size, P-iris, auto iris, vandal-proof properties, wide dynamic range, PTZ functions, and high resolution are primary reasons that Cheung Hing Electronic Electrical Engineering selected these cameras. These features were vital for capturing images that can provide accurate and comprehensive information […]

How Britain Exported Next-Generation Surveillance

WHEN CHAPMAN’S CAR triggered that alert on the evening of October 26, it took the police just 20 minutes to find and stop him. But, as a later investigation discovered, it was not the first warning that had been issued. In fact, a total of 16 ANPR alerts had been put out over the previous three days—including four on the day he was arrested. Three police forces spotted Peter Chapman. Between them they cover a combined area of more than 10,000 square km. The combined area covered by Cleveland, Durham, and North Yorkshire police forces is over 10,000 square kilometers. It is policed by close to 5,000 officers and home to almost two million people—similar in size to Houston, Texas, but spread across an area 10 times greater. The report for Chapman’s vehicle said the driver was “to be immediately stopped”, but it was only graded as medium priority. In truth, the alerts were just a tiny handful of those that tumble onto police computers in a never-ending avalanche of data: in Cleveland alone, roadside cameras generate around 2,500 alerts every day. Officers were sent to find his car six times, but for four days attempts had proved futile. After all, knowing where a vehicle had been 10 minutes earlier is not necessarily enough to find it on Britain’s crowded road network. In the space of three days, 16 alerts were generated by Chapman’s car. Each one urged police to arrest the driver. There is a reason so much […]
