Nedap launches licence plate recognition cameras ANPR Lumo and ANPR Access V2

Nedap has launched two new automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras for vehicular access control.

The ANPR Lumo has been designed to perform effectively in the most challenging scenarios. Deep learning algorithms achieve high enough accuracy to read license plates in a variety of font formats, making it suitable for the Pacific and US markets. Operates at a range of 2-8 metres (6.5-26 feet).

In terms of accuracy and effectiveness the ANPR Access V2 raises the performance bar on its predecessor, ANPR Access, and is fully compatible with existing installations. Range of action is 3-6 metres (10-19 feet).

Built-in Wiegand options mean both new cameras readily integrate with any third party security, parking and traffic management systems. Both models comprise embedded software, analyzer and IR illuminator.

“There are many ANPR systems in the market,” said Maarten Mijwaart, managing director of Nedap Identification Systems. “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.”

By reading licence plates ANPR cameras are suitable for applications for which issuance of (RFID) tags is impractical or not possible. These cameras are widely and increasingly used to grant temporary or incidental access to vehicles in, for instance, employee or visitor parking applications.
