The Cobra Automatic Number Plate Recognition Image Capture system has been designed to read vehicle licence plates day and night, in the most demanding conditions. The Cobra system can be supplied with a range of different internal camera and IR illumination options offering unmatched flexibility - suitable for any ANPR application including mobile, fixed and long range ANPR. A principal feature is the use of high resolution optical zoom cameras – both for ANPR and high definition overview/contextual imaging. Zoom functionality means the Cobra system can be rapidly optimised to suit differing plate and environmental conditions at ANPR capture points. The Cobra can be easily moved from one location to another and the settings simply adjusted – avoiding the needfor time consuming, risky and costly re-lensing.
