What is ANPR?

Automatic Number Plate Recognition, also known as ANPR is often thought of as technology commonly used by traffic police or parking management companies but the new RoboPlate line of ANPR cameras and additional software is affordable and (now) available to business, property and home owners.

You probably know it as the technology that traffic police use to alert them to a suspect vehicle or to capture a speeding driver for example. You might be aware that it is used in most modern car parks to clock the time spent on site, triggering an automatic barrier to lift or a gate to open when a vehicle leaves. But with the right set-up, ANPR can do so much more, for so many more!

RoboPlate PowerZoom ANPR camera

The traditional bullet design Roboplate ANPR camera has an industry leading 5-50mm power zoom lens, this is a much more powerful lens than many of its competitors. The wide angle 5 degree and 50 degree zoom make it extremely versatile for detecting and recognising car number plates in a wide range of applications. The ability to capture number plates at a greater distance than the eyeball make it useful for mounting in a higher position whilst maintaining an optimum capture angle. This camera is often used on petrol forecourts, and to monitor distant entrances.

Completely self contained the RoboPlate ANPR cameras don't need an NVR or any additional software to capture number plate data, add it to its built in black/white/grey list and then use it to open gates and trigger alarms etc.

The cameras can be set up by using a computer or tablet to connect to their built in web-browser interface where you can set up how it functions and add data to its built in black, white and grey list of number plates.

The RoboPlate cameras have a built in low voltage output relay (3.3V TTL) that can be used to interface with other equipment such as an automated barrier, or you can use its unique NetSend function to control other equipment such as networkable relays. Networked relays have the huge advantage they don't need a direct connection to the camera but simply need to be on the same network. Both types can be triggered subject to licence plate detection. Triggering can take place for every combination of a black, white or unlisted plate.

The NetSend functionality also allows the camera to send pop up messages to computers and for example it could alert a Petrol Station manager that a known "drive-off" has pulled on to the forecourt. Or it could inform a business owner that a VIP customer has pulled into the car park.

For power users of ANPR equipment we have written our own software program called ANPR COMMAND CENTRE. This software makes it easy for the user to have more than the 3 black, white and grey lists and create as many as they want to trigger various actions. You could for example have a VIP list, Customer list, Staff list, Courier list etc.

The software allows additional flexibility to trigger alarm actions based on if X & Y happens then a certain event is triggered. The additional software also makes handling large volumes of registrations easier. The software is an add-on and the cameras themselves can do the basic ANPR functions as a stand alone item.

In addition to the ANPR COMMAND CENTRE software a lightweight pop-up widget is available for PCs called RegWATCH that will display the live image and a pop up message from the camera when a registration match is made to its built in white or black list.

The RoboPlate ANPR cameras are based on ONVIF protocol so they can be used as a standard IP camera and most NVRs will be able to record the live video from them.
