Any security professional knows how important technologies surrounding vehicles are. Often, it’s our best bet at tracking criminals or terrorists and potentially protecting against catastrophe. One way to track and identify vehicles is through license plates and it’s no wonder that license plate readers have become a common tool in the arsenal of many security experts. Even better, license plate readers backed by intelligence can be even more effective. Below are just a few of the many benefits of investing in intelligent license plate readers.
A Unique Identifier
When it comes to identifying a vehicle for security purposes, there are a few options. Something like a registration may provide the most details but is typically inaccessible unless a law enforcement officer is able to get physical access to it, which isn’t often the case. On the other hand, the make and model of a vehicle is useful information as well, but it just doesn’t tell us quite enough about a vehicle because there are often plenty of other vehicles with the same make and model. License plates hit the sweet point, offering enough information while still being relatively accessible to security professionals who need such data to make informed decisions.
Intelligent license plate readers are more effective at identifying license plates as well as making that information more usable. This is in part thanks to their higher quality images which, in Gatekeeper’s case, takes advantage of a specialized digital IP that uses infrared or white light illumination to really let that image quality shine through.
Why Use Intelligent Systems?
Thanks to the artificial intelligence that backs our intelligent license plate readers, all of that license plate character recognition can be put to good use. The Optical Character Recognition software can decode those characters into data that is workable and can be managed. This, in addition to being flexible enough for use in any country or municipality, establishes intelligent license plate readers as powerful tools that ought to be taken advantage of.
