100,000+ LPR systems
License Plate Recognition (LPR) – also known as Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) – is ARH’s flagship technology. The 2 key components of LPR systems are the LPR software, purpose-made to read vehicle license plates, and dedicated LPR cameras.
ARH’s flagship software product is the Carmen® ANPR engine trained in-house to reliably read all license plates in the world. Carmen’s cutting edge is its alphabet-independent operation of unrivalled speed and accuracy. Carmen® ANPR reads license plates from many image sources: still images as well as live or recorded video streams. It offers country-independent and alphabet-independent recognition of not only Latin characters, but also Arabic, Cyrillic, Chinese, Korean, Thai and many more alphabets.
We at ARH develop, manufacture and offer a broad range of purpose-built LPR cameras. For LPR-optimized imaging, purpose-built cameras yield far better results than general-purpose cameras. This is why ARH developed a line of dedicated plate recognition cameras – for fixed, portable and mobile use – designed with the entire process of LPR in mind: triggering, image capturing, image preselection and, optionally, onboard plate recognition.
License Plate Recognition is used excessively all over the world for plate-based toll collection, automated border control, traffic monitoring, traffic security monitoring, traffic and speed enforcement, parking management, vehicle access control and many other application areas.
With hardware and software development in one hand, in-depth industrial expertise accumulated in the course of 28 years of in-house product development, we have:
- The potential to develop electronic, mechanical and optical systems and software;
- Our own manufacturing base to produce electronic and mechanical equipment as well as complete systems;
- Service potential – from installation through operation.
In other words, ARH can offer unrivalled benefits in License Plate Recognition.
60,000+ ID reader systems
We design and deliver purpose-made ID scanners and passport readers that can read ALL identity documents in the word. ARH passport readers extract both printed and electronic data from official travel documents and national IDs including ID cards and driver’s licenses. A technologically more challenging task is detecting fake, forged or tampered ID documents – a process called verification or authentication. ARH’s passport readers perform identity document authentication within seconds by checking a range of document-specific security features in various wavelengths of light. Authentication includes analyzing data integrity, too: cross-checking the captured printed and electronic information in compliance with the latest and most advanced e-passport standards.
ID document reading is widely used all over the world for 24/7 Automated Border Control (ABC), e-gates, airline check-in systems, know-your-customer schemes in banking, hotel guest registration, physical access control systems and age verification in bars, casinos and the gaming industry.
With hardware and software development in one hand, field-tested innovative technology, in-depth industrial expertise accumulated in the course of 28 years of product development, we have:
- A team of over 200 engineers;
- Our own manufacturing base to produce electronic and mechanical equipment;
- The potential to develop electronic, mechanical and optical systems and dedicated OCR software.
In other words, ARH can offer unrivalled benefits in ID reader systems.
12,000+ satisfied partners
Many of ARH’s clients are system integrators creating LPR systems and ID reader systems – both of which are based on Optical Character Recognition (OCR). Read about these technologies here.
Beside OCR-based technologies, we have multiple other product lines. A key area in every Smart City concept is efficient traffic management. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) can have a great positive impact on urban growth, safety and environment. ARH’s non-intrusive intelligent traffic monitoring devices with on-board video analytics deliver real-time, accurate information with the aim to streamline traffic and maximize urban infrastructure potentials.
Video analytics plays a great role in traffic enforcement by automatically recognizing traffic offences and assisting the work of traffic authorities with photo and video evidence records.
Smart CCTV detecting user-defined events is used for monitoring urban areas, sport stadiums, shopping malls, fleets of public transportation as well as logistics and manufacturing sites – not only as a means of proactive security management, but also as a new and untapped marketing tool. Intelligent video surveillance will never completely replace human workforce – but it can always ideally support personnel in their daily work with smart technology.
As a privately-owned company with headquarters in Budapest, Hungary, ARH has direct market presence in 140 countries and a network of 50 country-level sales representatives. We have:
- Multiple market-leading ARH products
- A team of over 200 engineers
- Product development potential – turning ideas into prototypes and serial production
Beside LPR systems and ID reading systems, our technology is used in ITS, plate-based vehicle access control, traffic enforcement based on video analytics and intelligent Video Management System or Smart CCTV systems.
In other words, ARH can offer unrivalled benefits – as proven by over 12,000 satisfied partners worldwide.
