Environmental conditions are never ideal. Weather can be a factor, along with the time of day. Number plates vary by region. They can get bent, crumpled, and partially covered. Vehicles travel at different speeds. Customers can’t always place high-quality cameras at an ideal angle in precisely the right spot. But, the number plate data still needs to be definitively accurate. We built our ANPR technology with all those challenges in mind. So government, police, and security services can confidently gather accurate data that helps secure communities around the world. Nonetheless, our software is used by a wide range of businesses including toll plazas, gated communities, weigh systems, snowy towns where visibility is limited, and even drones. Our ANPR software is so advanced that many car wash businesses trust our software to see through the dirt and grime for an accurate license plate capture

Better ANPR

Of course, we think we’re better than our competitors. Unlike some of them, we think we’ve got a good case for being so confident in our beliefs. For starters, we’re relentlessly passionate about moving toward 100% accuracy. Will it ever happen? Hard to say. But in the meantime, we work toward the goal in four different ways.

– First, by regularly enhancing our algorithm to support real-life environments. Our AI engine learns as it goes.

– Second, we also are obsessed with regional differences, allowing us to improve locations one area at a time.

– Third, we deliver engine updates every 3-6 weeks, compared to 6-12 months for other suppliers.

– Fourth, we’re so confident that we offer you a no-credit-card-required free trial so you can test on your own.

Does it matter? Ask our competitors as you evaluate our capabilities vs. theirs. Then, come back to sign up for our free ANPR trial.


Focus on the Plate

ALPR reduce false positives license plate recognition

Reduce false positives with Plate Recognizer.   See results of our ANPR tests!

How horrible it would be for a system to think that there are 20 cars in the parking lot rather than 17 real vehicles!  We use our deep learning automatic number-plate recognition AI engine to reduce false positives by teaching the system what’s NOT a number plate. While bumper stickers, brand messages, and other vehicle data might confuse other ANPR systems, these distractions don’t detract us from getting our data. Reducing false positives ensures that personnel need not waste time tracking down invalid information, and users can be confident in the results.

Some ANPR Applications

As our ANPR gets more accurate and technology advances, organizations look to not only use number plate data to secure areas but also to accelerate customer engagements at secure site locations like construction sites, communities, parking lots, and more. The following is a trio of everyday use applications. Plate Recognizer welcomes the opportunity to work with your team to find new use cases for our software to make your physical location more safe, secure, and user-friendly.

Parking Management

Are the vehicles at your physical location abiding by the parking policy? Imagine getting an alert when a violation occurs. Find out how it works in our Parking Enforcement solution. 

Highway Monitoring

Plate Recognizer ANPR systems can monitor critical junctions 24/7 to identify stolen vehicles, track hot lists, and more!  Understand traffic flow in a whole new level with our analytics platform.

Gated Communities

Keep your premises safe by knowing who’s coming and going.  Sure, people can visit, but make sure that they’re not parking overnight.

Drive Thrus

Keep track of how many unique vehicles come through your restaurant’s drive thru on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Perform a quick search for specific vehicles on a specific date and time range in the event an emergency situation occurs. These are just a couple reasons why our ANPR software can be great for drive thrus. 

Gas Stations

Needless to say, the benefits gas station owners receive from running accurate ANPR software far outweigh the cost in most cases. From getting accurate consumer data to catching thieves and vandals, there are numerous reasons why every gas station owner should incorporate lightening fast ANPR software into their camera security system!

Toll Management

Increase revenue with efficient toll management. How fast could toll road traffic move if all tolls were collected automatically based on plate numbers instead of RFID chips? How many more customers would travel the toll roads if they could avoid the RFID requirement or cash payment lines!

Supported Countries for ANPR

Plate Recognizer proudly serves over 90 countries on 6 continents. Sorry, we’ve got nothing for Antarctica (yet).
