License Plate Recognition
Being able to identify license plates quickly and automatically is a great advantage to many businesses and organizations for a wide variety of applications including security, crime detection, traffic management and even automatic payment systems (example: for parking lots). It is only recently that the technology has really come of age and the systems HOA Technology install not only provide exceptionally reliable results, but can do so at acute angles, in any lighting conditions and, most importantly, at high speed. The system can process images of vehicle license plates in color and infrared and cross-check them against any database held within a connected computer. When a vehicle is matched a user is immediately alerted by a visual overlay on the screen, an audible alarm, an SMS message or an email message or any combination of these.
