NEW YORK, Jan. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is a surveillance system with primary capability of capturing the image of vehicles and identifies their license number. ANPR systems consist of high-speed cameras with IR filters, processors capable of performing optical character recognition (OCR), application software, user interface, and an alert capability to notify operators in case of a match. ANPR systems can be a standalone device or can be used with existing traffic enforcement cameras or closed-circuit televisions and are used by the police forces across the globe to prevent and detect crimes. These systems are also used for electronic toll collection on roads and for monitoring traffic activities such as red light adherence and speed enforcement. Additionally, ANPR systems can assist in the detection of stolen vehicles. The ANPR technology varies from location to location depending on the designs of number plates.
ANPR systems are increasingly being adopted in traffic enforcement, detection, and prevention of crimes and access control in the public sector. Initiatives undertaken by governments to incorporate new technologies in order to ensure safety in the public sector is one of the key factors driving growth in the global automatic number plate recognition market. However, challenges related to non-uniformity in the license plate design across different states, countries, or regions are hindering the adoption of this technology. Applications of ANPR systems in the commercial sector have increased in the recent years and shown significant traction in the vehicle-parking segment.
