A range of Axis cameras support built-in automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) video analytic applications (ACAPs) offered from Axis and third party vendors. These contain metadata captured and processed entirely within the Axis camera and then transferred to the XProtect database.
Speed, lane and traffic light enforcement control
Vehicular crime investigations
Parking lot security
The solution allows users to collect important traffic data and manage all aspects — from automatically detecting license plates to getting forensic search results. Vehicle and plate detection, recognition and classification is performed inside the camera before being sent to the VMS. Using Power of Ethernet IP cameras to process and manage metadata keeps costs low compared to server-based processing.
Plus, each ACAP and camera are optimized to ensure high-quality video and analytics with optical zoom, autofocus, OptimizedIR, electronic image stabilization, shutter speed and other important camera settings. Depending on which ACAP is used, results typically deliver detection rates of >97% with up to 95% recognition rates.
