ANPR | Automatic Number Plate Recognition
Automatic Number Plate Recognition
At the very core, “Automatic License Plate Recognition” (ANPR) systems are used to automatically detect and recognize license plates in images. From there, the identified license plate can be used to look up information on the owner of the car.
ANPR systems are mainly used for automatic toll collection, and in the United States, the primary use of ANPR is within law enforcement to issue speeding citations.
ANPR systems tend to be heavily region specific on a state-by-state (or province-by-province) level. In the United States, each State has a different and unique license plate design. And as we travel across the world, we continue to see various forms of license plate designs.
