ANPR accomplishments since 2009 – #10yearchallenge by ARH
Has ANPR changed in the last 10 years? In a recent ARH Linkedin miniseries we listed 5 key ANPR achievements accomplished since 2009.
ANPR – license plate types
How many types of license plates are there in your country? While 10 years ago Carmen® ANPR by ARH could read about 5,000 types from around 100 countries, now it offers the safe recognition of close to 30,000 (!) license plate types from roughly 200 countries!
ANPR and key traffic data for ITS
Designing cameras got extended with developing complete solutions. It’s not just about providing camera and ANPR OCR software anymore, it is about ITS: complete traffic solutions with ANPR, speed and weight measurement, vehicle categorization, axle counting and so on.
Non-intrusive, purely video-based virtual trigger for ANPR
Remember the time when having LPR usually required breaking the asphalt and installing hardware trigger loops? This is the past – our cameras now come with proprietary onboard Vehicle Detection, an adaptive software-based triggering solution. Let the traffic flow.
ANPR cameras: imaging-only vs onboard plate reading
Cameras got much smarter! In the 2000s, IP cameras were a great breakthrough to offer network accessibility but LPR needed separate local or remote computing capacity. Now LPR is performed on the camera with various onboard features like Advanced Vision, Vehicle Detection & many more – no license plates remain unread.
Complete ANPR from video streams – requiring no programming skills
Back then we provided only a Software Development Kit for Carmen® – suitable for well-prepared integrators to implement complex LPR systems. Today, Carmen® GO offers way more than that: a plug-and-play, vendor-agnostic application installed in 2 minutes, producing immediate LPR results – without any programming.
