Nedap the identification product company has launched the next in its Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) platform. With two new cameras, Nedap describes it as its answer to the demand for license plate reading in vehicle access control applications.
Nedap’s ANPR cameras identify vehicles by capturing their license plates, for applications in which it is undesirable to issue (RFID) tags. This technology is used where vehicles need to be granted access temporarily or incidentally, such as for employee or visitor parking.
The ANPR Lumo camera is for use in vehicular access control applications. Deep learning algorithms enable accuracy, even in regions with license plates that include different font formats, according to the Dutch firm. The ANPR Access V2 is the successor of Nedap’s ANPR Access. This license plate camera is a new development that offers better performance while being fully compatible with existing installations according to the firm. Both new cameras can integrate with any third party security, parking and traffic management systems using their built-in Wiegand options.
Maarten Mijwaart, Managing Director of Nedap Identification Systems says: “There are many ANPR-systems in the market. Few of them were purposely designed for vehicle access control. With the release of these new camera’s we are taking the effectiveness of ANPR for vehicle access control to the next level. The available options for configuration and interfacing have been enhanced and extended, making ANPR a viable option for installations all over the world, including the Pacific and the USA.”
