ANPR

Abbreviation for Automatic Number Plate Recognition, ANPR recognises number plates of vehicles from CCTV images. ANPR is a mass surveillance method for reading vehicle registration plates. For analysis and reporting in future, the data collected by an ANPR system can be stored in a database. As soon as a vehicle passes, an ANPR camera instantly checks it plate against the database that contains records of vehicles of interest.

ANPR are engineered to store images from the camera in addition to text from the license plate. Some of them are even configured to store the image of the driver.

This technology has proved to be very beneficial in detecting major and organised crimes namely, locating stolen vehicles, solving cases of terrorism, dealing with uninsured vehicle use, etc. In addition, it is also used to conduct traffic surveys, managing parking areas and site access control. As plate formats vary from place to place, ANPR technology tends to be region-specific.
