As big data concepts have germinated, and are combined with new and improved data visualization techniques and faster processing capabilities, the opportunity to inject intelligence into ITS has finally emerged. Users for the first time have the tools available to data mine, actively spotting trends which were nearly impossible previously.
While the introduction of wide spread ANPR has been reasonably slow, both camera and ANPR technology has become mainstream. In addition, this same camera when used in conjunction with clever software can also: identify wrong way running, speed enforcement, Amber, Silver and LEO alerts, average speed analysis, objects in a road, vehicle classification and a host of other capabilities, which would otherwise require a barrage of additional sensors.
The dawn of integrated ANPR solutions is upon us, these systems have been widely used in a variety of applications from congestion charging to open road tolling, and have been proven to be robust, reliable, and accurate – with many vendors offering systems with accuracy level well in excess of 95%, even in free-flow environments.
This presentation identifes how ANPR compares to other sensor technologies, identify the areas where ANPR can and will make a difference as well as identify limitations in the current ITS philosophies.
