ANPR is an abbreviation for Automatic Number Plate Recognition. It is a system capable of recognising numberplates from closed circuit television (CCTV) images for various different uses. A sophisticated software optical character recognition (OCR) engine and algorithm converts camera images, via specialist video capture, into identifiable data. This allows the capture of critical information such as the registration of every vehicle entering a site. This information can be passed to the police to assist in the pursuit and identification of contraventions. Visual proof of parking contraventions with the corresponding time and date information can be provided as evidence and to avoid disputes.
