Short for Automatic Number Plate Recognition, ANPR is a technology that captures vehicle number plates at any speed. EPM’s selection of ANPR systems in Dubai uses advanced techniques to recognize number plates, capture them as images, identify the characters in the correct sequence they appear, and convert this to text. This data is recorded and can be useful in identifying a vehicle. It is usually associated with the police force’s traffic department who uses it to capture traffic offenders. However, it is an efficient system to use in mall entrances for security or to automate information at a weighbridge or toll station. On the whole, it helps to improve security and road safety by identifying and alienating people on the wrong side of the law by keeping a record of their details.
