At the National Parking Association’s big annual meet, Vision Components will present embedded imaging solutions for automatic license plate recognition (ALPR). The modular Carrida software and hardware components enable blacklist/whitelist access control, parking management, identification of vehicle types and colors, and data logging. They can be networked with gates, barriers, ticket printers, under-vehicle scanners (UVSS), and other relevant equipment.
Vision Components’ core ALPR product for OEMs is the high-performance, hardware-independent Carrida software engine with a typical processing time of 30 ms and a reading accuracy >96%. It can process all common still image and video formats, detects all plates displayed in one image, and recognizes characters with a minimum height of 12 px. A dedicated parking management software tool files all collected data and makes it available at any time for review and statistical analysis via web GUI. OEMs can implement the ready-made ALPR software tools on systems already equipped with vision sensors. Or they can integrate the Carrida Cam for decentralized intelligence in their applications – a small, fully functional standalone ALPR system. Multiple Carrida cameras with a master-slave configuration enable control of several entrances and exits.
