Automatic Number Plate Recognition

Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) is a technology that uses optical character recognition (OCR) to recognize license plate numbers from captured images of the vehicle license plate. ELID-ANPR is a stand-alone Linux-based ANPR system with superior OCR performance, achieved by deploying state-of-the-art deep neural networks. It is meant to be installed and used at the edge – this eliminates the need for any PC or software installation. ELID-ANPR is equipped with a built in web-server, which allows the user to perform important functions like database management, adjusting settings and software updates through the web interface. It can also be directly managed from ELID’s access control softwares. The system is packaged with a powerful, dedicated IP camera that is specifically designed to be accessed by ELID-ANPR processing unit for obtaining crisp images of license plates.



State-of-the-art Technology
  • Leverages the cutting-edge in artificial intelligence by applying deep neural networks for OCR. This produces recognition results with very high accuracy.
True Unconstrained Performance
  • No need to abide by restrictions such as “License plate number cannot be two rows” or “License plate cannot have unusual fonts” or “The characters of the license plate cannot touch each other; they must have space between them”. Using advanced image processing and machine learning algorithms, ELID-ANPR is able to reliably recognize license plate numbers despite the presence of the afore-mentioned complications.
Real-time ANPR
  • There is no need to stop the vehicle to facilitate recognition. Rather, the vehicle merely needs to slow down slightly as it approaches the barrier gate. The license plate number will be recognized and the barrier gate will be lifted, allowing the vehicle to continue moving, without ever having to stop.

Easy Installation And Set-up
  • Stand-alone configuration avoids all the hassle associated with software installation and PC maintenance. The system can be easily set up remotely, either through the web-interface or from ELID access control softwares.

Effortless Integration
  • ELID-ANPR can easily be interfaced with any standard access controller that takes a wiegand input. This allows the access controller to treat the ELID-ANPR as a standard reader, and utilize number plate recognition to record the entry/exit times. ELID-ANPR can also function seamlessly in parallel with a standard card reader, allowing authorized access using access card and/or vehicle.

24/7 Operation
  • High performance IR LED illumination enables continued functionality even at night time, allowing 24 hour, 365 day operation.
All Weather Conditions
  • The system can compensate for extreme weather conditions, allowing reliable operation despite heavy rain and/or snow.
Evidential Image Storage
  • System stores images of both the recognized license plate as well as the vehicle. These images are very useful for verification purposes if there are any suspicious/unusual events.
