Most system used infrared cameras to take number plate’s picture stored in database that checked for access.
ANPR technology that read number plate via capturing image through infrared camera and check this against the server where all the number those get access to entrance if server found the number has access parking then allow the vehicle to entrance. If server not found number data in database then generate alert or asking permission for given entrance to vehicle or not.
Two technological parts of ANPR system that shows quality level:
• A log-lasting, accurate and intelligent high speed OCR (Optical Character Recognition).
• A technology that allows intelligent structural analysis for complex structures.
What make ANPR technology more accurate or dependable?
- ANPR system needs camera read number plates every second.
- System need most of the number plates must be readable.
- Widest range of picture quality must be handled.
- Server must be run 24*7 hours and fastest processing speed.
