ANPR Security Systems

titanHz uses ANPR Security Systems (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) technology as the basis to enable number plates to be extracted from standard video streams or still pictures. ANPR Security Systems (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) is a mass-surveillance method that uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) on images to read the number-plates on any vehicle. It can use existing closed-circuit television, road-rule enforcement cameras, or cameras specifically designed for the task. ANPR Security Systems (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) can be used to store the images captured, as well as the text from the number plate. It is also able to store a photograph of the driver. Our system commonly uses infrared lighting to allow the picture to be taken at any time of the day. ANPR Security Systems (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) technology tends to be region specific, owing to variation of number plates from place to place. Initially image manipulation techniques are used to detect, normalize and enhance the image of the number plate. Then the OCR is used to extract the alpha-numeric of the number plate.

ANPR Security System Engine

The ANPR Security System Engine (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) is the true genius behind the titanHz system, and uses the titanHz Engine by Adaptive Recognition Hungary. The key task of the ANPR Security System Engine (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) is to provide accurate reading capability “tuned” specifically for a country’s number plates style. titanHz providing brilliant accuracy and speed of resolution. titanHz complements this technology perfectly by providing the complete solution, designed to suit the environment. This ensures the ANPR Security System Engine (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) will provide you with the maximum advantage.


Example Applications of ANPR System

titanHz is invaluable in situations where ANPR Security Systems (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) can be used effectively, whether it is for compliance, operational, or financial purposes. Some examples are:

  1. Site Security
  2. Weigh Bridge Management
  3. Motorway Control
  4. Petrol Stations to log when a driver drives away without paying
  5. Car Parks or Entry Security Systems to control access
  6. Traffic Management Systems, to determine traffic flow
  7. A marketing tool to log patterns of use. For example, drive-through customer recognition that automatically recognize customers based on their number plate and offers them their last selection

Our ANPR systems (Automatic Number Plate Recognition Systems) are designed to satisfy the daily demands of busy police forces and public sector security in the face of highly mobile, often organized, criminals and suspected terrorists. Criminal mobility means that car registration numbers have become a key factor in locating and monitoring the movements and activities of suspects, putting individuals at the scene of a crime, and providing evidence leading to possible prosecution. Properly equipped forces can cross-reference databases and rapidly narrow down suspect vehicles through make, model, color and even a few letters from a registration plate.

Cost Effective
Stationary Camera

Costs can be cut by reducing normal security requirements such as staff, swipe cards and proximity devices. Such devices can be change hands and be lost easily. The system will allow historical data to be stored. Statistical information can be drawn from this data which can be used to plan for peak or busy periods.
