Number plate recognition cameras are a vital tool in the prevention of theft and vandalism particularly at fuel stations and car parks around Ireland. Due to increased fuel theft at petrol stations, these cameras are a must. An ANPR camera offers a strong recognition on vehicle license plates and viewing objects surrounded by light. These cameras when placed at entrance/exits and important intersections allow vehicle registration details to be recorded.
ANPR can be used to store the images captured by the cameras as well as the text from the license plate, with some configurable to store a photograph of the driver.
Systems commonly use infrared lighting to allow the camera to take the picture at any time of the day.
