Automatic Number Plate Recognition(ANPR System)
Automated Number Plate Recognition, abbreviated as ANPR, is one of Impulse Technologies’s foremost software products.
· Reads multiple lanes of traffic simultaneously (multiple cameras)
· Reads license plates day and night
· Reads license plates 24/7 under all weather conditions
ANPR system is a type of OCR (optical character recognition) technology, to read automatically the registration number and characters of vehicles from digital pictures.
Reading the registration number means transforming the pixels of the digital image into the text of the number plate.

Typical application environments:
Automation of Car Parks at Airport and Harbor logistics
Prevention of non-payment at gas stations, drive-in restaurants, etc.
Vehicle theft prevention / detection
Highway Toll Collection
Building a traffic movement database
BLACK LIST: To avoid unauthorized vehicles attempt accessing the premises by sending a pop-up warning window to users through Impulse ANPR solutions.
WHITE LIST: Mostly for Access Control.
Our Solution is capable to recognize both Reflective and Retro-Reflective License Plates.
Reflective form of registration plates are mostly being adopted in majority of European countries, and the visibility & recognition rate are higher than the retro-reflective plates.
For retro-reflective plates, it is highly recommended to either install an additional infrared IP camera or exterior light sensor to complement the insufficient lighting circumstance, and further increasing its recognition rate.
