Hi-Tech Solutions (HTS) has announced the VIR (vehicle identity recognition) suite, to be implemented with its licence plate recognition (LPR) systems.
The new suite comprises recognition of vehicle manufacturer logo (car model), vehicle body and plate colour, special icons on the plate itself (such as handicap) and country or state name. VIR allows for comparison of more than one parameter with respect to a given vehicle’s identity and can therefore provide a more complete picture and higher accuracy. The vehicle logo, colour and country or state name recognition capabilities greatly enhance and improve verification and classification of the vehicle and help check correlation between the car type, licence plate number, and data stored on police and homeland security databases, allowing an immediate alert when a suspicious vehicle passes through the system.
VIR is a valuable contribution to law enforcement organisations, helping them to detect vehicles with false licence plates.
In controlled areas such as airports, licence plate recognition systems with the vehicle logos recognition feature can be installed at access lanes, automatically monitoring the vehicles entering and exiting the area, detecting any discrepancies between the vehicle type and its licence plate number.
The suite also increases the efficiency of toll road operators, who can bill for road usage more effectively for toll roads that are used by residents of a number of neighbouring states or countries.
“VIR is state-of-the-art technology, and special algorithms were developed by HTS’s R&D department,” said Meta Rotenberg, VP business development, HTS. “We had to meet many challenges. For example, vehicle manufacturer logos vary in size, shape and colour and unlike licence plates, car logos can be located in different places on the vehicle, or even separated from the car body and placed on the hood.”
