Hanwha Techwin brings serverless ANPR solution to market for site management

Hanwha Techwin has strengthened its range of intelligent traffic management solutions with the introduction of a highly cost-effective serverless Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system. Easy to configure camera-to-camera IP communication technology enables up to four Wisenet ANPR cameras (ie one master camera and three slaves) to simultaneously capture and transmit data to a convenient user interface.

Taking advantage of a powerful chipset, the serverless ANPR solution is able to capture (with 95% accuracy) the number plates of vehicles moving at speeds of anything up to 50 km/h and designed to offer an affordable edge-based solution for car parks and petrol stations with multiple entrances/exits, barriers or roadways present.

The serverless ANPR camera solution provides the opportunity to automatically control the movement of up to 1,000 white-listed cars through barriers via camera relay outputs, at the same time affording end users valuable car park management information, such as ‘time spent’ and occupancy rates, without having to incur the cost of installing and running the application on a server.

An API is available for system integrators to provide the opportunity for the ANPR solution to be integrated with third party software and systems.

A comprehensive array of ANPR-based intelligent traffic management solutions can now be sourced direct from Hanwha Techwin thanks to the company’s partnership with analytics expert the FF Group. In addition to the serverless and single-site ANPR camera solutions, the range also includes a number plate server solution for large site management and cloud-based options for multiple sites.

“Collectively, these ANPR solutions provide car park access control for business applications, as well as large-scale, city wide-based systems which help local authorities to keep people safe, enforce parking regulations and detect other traffic infringements,” said Uri Guterman, head of product and marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe. “The key benefit of the deep integration of the FF Group’s analytics with our Wisenet cameras is that users can deploy a highly effective ANPR solution without having to evaluate the myriad specialist analytics solutions on the market.”
