numbers of vehicles on roads mean an even greater demand for number plates. To
be precise, every vehicle requires a pair of number plates. The use of
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) for vehicle entry is not new. But
it's being used in more innovative ways to streamline processes and help
says that the global ANPR System Market is predicted to grow by 9.6% annually
between 2017 and 2023. With data becoming more available, effective ways of
maximizing its use are critical. That's where powerful VMS solutions, like
Hikvision HikCentral Professional, come in.
cameras are now smart enough to read license plates and even determine the make
and color of a vehicle. This provides valuable data when managing a car parking
facility, whether for public or private use. But the real value comes when the
data is brought together in a way that can be managed and analyzed.
Using a powerful video management system (VMS)
like HikCentral Professional, users can add vehicle information to the
platform. They can categorize them into different types (including registered
vehicles, temporary vehicles, and visitor vehicles). This helps the system to
'recognize' and analyse the data, providing numerous business benefits.
Vehicle Analysis Report can tell how many cars are going through the entrance,
within a certain time frame. This provides intelligence to car park operators
to plan their business – maybe providing more employee resource at those times,
are operational benefits too – an 'Overtime Parking Report' can identify the
vehicles that have 'overstayed' their parking time. This means operators can
take action to flag this and present fines.
Streamlining car park operations
of these reports can be set up through HikCentral and configured to send
automatic alerts for certain criteria. These can be sent by email daily, weekly,
or monthly. This gives the business operators a practical and valuable way to
monitor their system, without even having to access the system themselves.
facilitates easy access to a car park for 'known' vehicles. The system recognises
the plate and can automatically raise the barrier. Private car parks can use
this, for example to allow only 'member' vehicles in. It can also provide a way
for public car parks to streamline their payment system.
park operators use the technology to give drivers information on the number of
free spaces, and even direct them to the nearest one. This management and
guidance system reduces stress and speeds up the parking process.
a world where data is the key to efficiency and business development, an
effective way to maximize its worth is key. HikCentral Professional offers a
simple and effective way for car park operators to use ANPR data to make their
lives, and those of their customers, easier.
