License Plate Recognition (ANPR)

Automatic Number Plate Recognition

ANPR is a mass surveillance method that uses optical character recognition on images to read vehicle registration plates. It is often used by police forces as a method of electronic toll collection on pay-per-use roads and also for cataloging the movements of traffic or individuals.

ANPR can be used to store captured images as well as text from the license plates and most cameras with ANPR functionally use infrared lighting to allow the camera to take clear pictures at any time of the day.

All of the above functionality is available within SharpView and SharpView Manager.
