Automatic number-plate recognition (ANPR) is a technology that uses optical character recognition on images to read vehicle registration plates to create vehicle location data. ANPR are used for automatic toll collection, traffic law enforcement, real-time monitoring, and security and management for parking areas. It can use existing closed-circuit television, road-rule enforcement cameras, or cameras specifically designed for the task.
Automatic number-plate recognition can be used to store the images captured by the cameras as well as the text from the license plate, with some configurable to store a photograph of the driver. Systems commonly use infrared lighting to allow the camera to take the picture at any time of day or night. ANPR technology must take into account plate variations from place to place.
