License Plate Recognition Privacy Controversy
The use of license plate recognition by law enforcement may give some the impression that any application of this technology puts privacy at risk; however, there are non-controversial uses for this technology that are beneficial. Moving beyond the license plate recognition privacy controversy:
How License Plate Recognition Works
License plate recognition software detects license plates captured on surveillance cameras and links the license plate number with the recorded video. The license plate data is automatically compared to pre-configured lists. Lists can be categorized for those vehicles that you allow access (positive) and those vehicles that are not permitted access (negative).
Automatic License Plate Recognition Optimizes Tasks
When a certain license plate is detected, LPR can send a notification letting you quickly take action. You can also use your preconfigured lists to trigger specific actions, saving you time by automating tasks. License plate recognition software can be integrated with third party access control systems. For instance, after being recognized by the LPR software, a gate can be raised automatically for authorized vehicles and an alarm can be generated based on unauthorized access to a parking area.
License plate recognition is a very effective tool for numerous applications including parking permit control, vehicle inventory, parking lot security and access control, gas station drive-offs and more.
