Nedap - specialist in long-range identification solutions - launches the next generation of its Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) platform. With the introduction of two brand-new cameras, Nedap answers to the rapidly growing demand for effective license plate reading in vehicle access control applications. In a relatively short period, license plate recognition technology for vehicle access control has become very popular. Nedap’s ANPR cameras identify vehicles by capturing their license plates, making it the perfect solution for applications in which it is undesirable to issue (RFID) tags. This technology is used in situations where vehicles need to be granted access temporarily or incidentally, such as in employee or visitor parking applications. Advanced license plate recognition Deep learning algorithms enable a high accuracy, even in regions with license plates that include different font formats Nedap enables customers to benefit from the latest developments in ANPR technology by adding two brand-new cameras to its platform: The advanced ANPR Lumo can be applied in challenging vehicular access control applications. Deep learning algorithms enable high accuracy, even in regions with license plates that include different font formats. For specific regions, like the Pacific and USA, this license plate camera offers a powerful solution. The ANPR Access V2 is the successor of Nedap’s ANPR Access. This license plate camera is a new development that offers better performance while being fully compatible with existing installations. Both new cameras easily integrate with any third-party security, parking and traffic management systems using their built-in Wiegand options. Designed for vehicle access control “There are many ANPR-systems in the market. Few of them were purposely designed for vehicle access control. With the release of these new cameras, we are taking the effectiveness of ANPR for vehicle access control to the next level. “The available options for configuration and interfacing have been enhanced and extended, making ANPR a viable option for installations all over the world, including the Pacific and the USA,” says Maarten Mijwaart, Managing Director of Nedap Identification Systems.

"Access control systems that slow down people or their vehicles often end up not being used in the best way possible" Why should end users stop by the Nedap booth this year? Mijwaart: We feel that many people are not aware of the benefits that our products can bring. Making security systems a little more convenient for people to use will greatly increase the support of people in organisations for the security systems that are implemented. Access control systems that slow down people or their vehicles often end up not being used in the best way possible, which decrease the security level of your organisation. Security should not be in the way of people. Our solutions make security and convenience go hand in hand, in the building and outside the building, for people and for vehicles. Why should system integrators consider working with Nedap and its products? Mijwaart: Well, for one because we understand the importance of our partner channel. We understand that they convert our products into solutions for their clients. This is why we try and make their lives as easy as possible. Our long-range readers are engineered to support specific applications as good as possible. We support many interfacing possibilities. Our products are documented well and are certified by radio authorities to be used in most countries in the world. Our partner portal makes a wealth of support material available and our free e-learning courses help you on your way quickly. And last but not least: our support staff and commercial staff are more than willing to lend a helping hand when needed. Another reason is that we have a track record in providing high quality products. Our products are tested against competitive products regularly and almost always tend to be the preferred solution. When we do get feedback on how to improve our products, we listen carefully and are able to implement these improvements without delay thanks to our ability to carry out product developments and improvements ourselves, with our own team of engineers. We strive to be market leading. We are constantly working on expanding and improving our portfolio; for only one simple reason: we’d like to make sure that, in our field, we are the logical choice to work with; now and in the future.
