INTRODUCTIONA vehicle registration plate is a metal or plastic plate attached to amotor vehicle or trailer for official identification purposes. Theregistration identifier is a numeric or alphanumeric code thatuniquely identifies the vehicle within the issuing region’s database.
INTRODUCTIONEight types of license plates are used in Pakistan. Each provinceand territory issues its own number plate; the federal governmentissues number plates for foreign diplomats and vehicles owned by themilitary, police and federal departments (red for foreigndiplomats and green for the federal government.)Sindh’s number platesare yellow with black letters and numbers for privatevehicles and Black number plates with white letters for commercialvehicles; Islamabad, NWFP, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Balochistanand Northern Areas have white number plates with black letters andnumbers
The number plates also have the province or territory’s name at thebottom. In Punjab however, number plates can be of any colour thevehicle owner chooses, but the first 2 letters represent the city thevehicle is registered in.The same all over Punjab and has a sign and’Punjab’ written on it, while the white parthas the number of the vehicle.For example:• RIZ 3725, is a vehicle registered in• RIW1329, is a vehicle registered inRawalpindi, Punjab.
MAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF INFORMATION SYSTEM LICENSE PLATE CAPTURE CAMERALicense plate capture cameras are a specialized form of CCTV camerathat has built in software that helps to identify and capture licenseplates on still or moving vehicles. The intelligent traffic modes builtinto these cameras allows the camera to compensate for speed,weather, and headlight issues which all make it challenging tocapture a usable video that identifies license plates

LICENSE PLATE RECOGNITION (LPR) SYSTEMCCTV Camera Pros license plate recognition (LPR) system, provideshigh-resolution video monitoring and recording. Our License PlateRecognition (LPR) system is an effective video surveillance andparking lot monitoring solution. Many parking lots have a highsecurity risk rating. It is difficult for security personnel to monitorisolated areas or levels of large lots. Most lots need an effectivedigital surveillance systems to provide live monitoring andcontinuous recording. These video surveillance systems providesprotection and reassurance to customers and employees.
LICENSE PLATE RECOGNITION (LPR) SYSTEM The license plate capture system activates the LPR recognition process in two ways. TWO WAYS PROCESS LPR RECOGNITION The first is via software video motion detection, which detects vehicles passing through the camera and illumination zone. The second is by input / output activation, which triggers recognition and recording upon I/O activation. The system supports both camera overview and picture-in-picture modes with ease of monitoring
WHY WE NEED TWO CAMERAS FOR TRAFFIC SURVEILLANCE?• The monochrome camera produces high-contrast license plate imagescharacterized by unmatched clarity.• Simultaneously, a second camera captures color overview images ofvehicles for additional video evidence.
LICENSE PLATE RECOGNITION SOFTWARE • The Geovision-LPR license plate recognition software features:• High recognition rate• High recognition speed: < 0.2 second• Supports up to 8 I/O Trigger or 4 Motion Detection lanes• Support image up to 720 x 480 (NTSC) providing higher accuracy• Integrate with GV-series DVR capture cards• Vehicle counter feature tracks number of vehicles• Camera overview for vehicle or driver
LICENSE PLATE RECOGNITION SOFTWAREThe GeoVision GV-LPR license plate recognition software is aneffective video security and parking / traffic monitoring solution. Toprovide security or allow access to customers and employees, parkinglots can integrate this high efficiency digital surveillance systemswith license plate recognition to enhance lots security andsurveillance efficiency. GV-LPR is used with GeoVisionSurveillance and License Plate Capture Cameras
LICENSE PLATE RECOGNITION SOFTWARELPR (License Plate Recognition) is an image-processing technologyused to identify vehicles by their license plates. This technology isused in various security and traffic applications, such as gated access-control system. The GV-LPR license plate recognition systemprovides high-resolution video monitoring and recording.
LICENSE PLATE RECOGNITION SOFTWAREThe system uses illumination (such as Infrared) and a license platecapture camera to take the image of the front or rear of the vehicle,then the GV-LPR license plate recognition software processesanalyzes the images and extracts the plate information. This data isused for enforcement, data collection, and can be used to open a gateif the car is authorized or keep a time record on the entry or exit forautomatic payment calculations.
LICENSE PLATE RECOGNITION SOFTWAREThe LPR system significant advantage is that the system can keep animage record of the vehicle which is useful in order to fight crimeand fraud. An additional camera can focus on the driver face andsave the image for identification reasons.
SYSTEM COMPONENTS & HOW THEY WORKA typical LPI/R system is comprised of a video image-acquisitionsubsystem, a CPU for image processing and control, a hardware- orsoftware-based character recognition engine, and a storage ortransmission subsystem for electronically recording plate Contentsand data such as date ,time and location

HARDWAREAt the front end of any ANPR system is the imaging hardware whichcaptures the image of the license plates. The initial image captureforms a critically important part of the ANPR system which, oftendetermines the overall performance.License plate capture is typically performed by specialized camerasdesigned specifically for the task.
HARDWAREFactors which pose difficulty for license plate imaging camerasinclude speed of the vehicles being recorded, varying ambientlighting conditions, headlight glare and harsh environmentalconditions. Most dedicated license plate capture cameras willincorporate infrared illumination in order to solve the problems oflighting and plate reflectivity.
USE OF ANPR SYSTEMS• Section control, to measure average vehicle speed over longer distances.• Border crossings• Filling stationsto log when a motorist drives away without paying for their fuel.• Traffic management systems, which determine traffic flow using the time it takes vehicles to pass two ANPR sites• Drive Through Customer Recognition, to automatically recognize customers based on their license plate and offer them their last selection, improving service to the customer.• To assist visitor management systems in recognizing guest vehicles
