• smart anpr camera
  • digital IP camera for ANPR



is a digital IP camera, illuminator and (Windows or Linux) computer integrated in a single device. Its processing unit locally runs license plate, container code, US DOT code recognition or database applications and allows access via web browsers. SmartCAM also has embedded digital signal processor (DSP) and field-programmable gate array processor (FPGA) for real-time image acquisition, manipulation, correction and enhancement tasks.

The camera can be enhanced with a variety of add-on components for specific functions or circumstances. Synchronized light sources are recommended at sites where extra brightness is necessary. A second 3 megapixel optic can also be added to the camera to perform license plate reading and provide overview images. Added built-in or external radars can deliver more precise triggering than software-based motion sensing, which is a less resource-intensive solution at high-speed roads and traffic congestion. The GPS and 3G module helps the camera determine its position and forward its stored data.
SmartCAM offers:
  • High quality image capturing for speed up to 255 km/h (158.5 mph)
  • Wide range of traffic monitoring functions
  • Best OCR accuracy in license plate recognition based systems
  • Large internal storage

SmartCAM provides solution for common problems by:
  • Automatic and maintenance-free 24/7 operation
  • Reflective and non-reflective license plates capturing
  • Simple installation requiring only power supply and standard IP connection
SmartCAM is ideal for:
  • Low infrastructure systems with its own automated applications and OS
  • All-in-one unit for tolling systems
  • Flexible hardware/software integration for ITS based systems; direct upload of user apps

SmartCAM combines ANPR/LPR camera, IR illumination, 3G modem and IP communication capability, GPS, data processing and (optional) Doppler speed radar in a single IP67 rated unit. The device automatically performs time synchronization (NTP) and image capturing in 30 FPS in any weather and light condition. Its built-in motion detection with extensive masking option, ONVIF compatibility, JPEG image / MJPEG stream output and internal buffer, synchronized IR (or optional white) LED illumination provide ideal image capturing and control.

The camera’s extensive ability for traffic counting, analysis and to directly control external devices, such as speed radars, illuminators, barriers as well as its accessibility through the web makes the perfect unit for a wide range of applications.
