Key advantages and features

  • The device can check thousands of parked vehicles per hour and immediately identify violations of parking rules.

  • Vehicle license plate recognition takes place in real-time. Data evaluation is almost instant.

  • Precise location of inspected vehicles

  • Vehicle license plate recognition works based on own Genetec algorithm, which is continuously improved by machine learning.

  • The possibility of vehicle classification allows the recognition of the country of origin of the vehicle plate number, the category of the vehicle and even its colour.

  • High reliability of operation in a wide range of weather and light conditions, both during the day and at night. Scanning capability even at speeds exceeding 50 km/hr.

  • The system is used in dozens of European and world metropolises (in France, Belgium, Denmark, Switzerland, USA, Canada and Australia).

  • Sophisticated connection of data from up to 8 cameras. Four for vehicle plate number recognition and another four for additional contextual evaluation. They are all connected to a single computing unit of compact dimensions.

How to regulate parking with full seriousness?

You need to think about the field monitoring system and its correct settings. A prerequisite for effective monitoring of compliance with the parking rules is that payments through all payment channels are registered on the basis of a vehicle registration plate and parking authorizations are issued electronically (not in the form of a paper card).

In that case, the monitoring can be carried out by scanning and recognition of the license plates – by the scanning vehicle system. The eligibility of parking is evaluated on the basis of data from the central database and according to the GPS location where the vehicle license plate was captured.

How does the monitoring work and for whom is the scanning vehicle a suitable solution?

If the city has a larger number of regulated parking spaces, it needs to carry out monitoring both during the day and at night. It is necessary to use technological solutions that make it possible to check thousands of vehicles a day. The involvement of a mobile monitoring system – a scanning vehicle – in the process is of great benefit.

The technology is based on a camera system mounted on the vehicle. While driving, the system recognizes the license plates of parked cars in real-time. The data collected is processed online (towards the database of resident permits and parking tickets from various payment channels).

The result of the inspection, indicating the location of the parking violation and all metadata is available immediately in the ParkDots system. Reported violation can be pushed to the ParkDots Enforcement mobile application to be resolved, or to the municipal police information system via integration for further processing.

Which technology and supplier to choose?

There are many different technologies and manufacturers available on the market. Important parameters to consider include the reliability of operation in a wide range of weather and light conditions (even in complete darkness) or the ability to scan at a speed of at least 50 km/hr. The most important criterion is the precision rate of the correct recognition of the scanned vehicle plate number, where the city should not be satisfied with values below 95%.

High-quality technology can be more expensive to procure, but the higher investment is usually offset by high reliability (low error rate) and system throughput (thousands of recognized plate numbers per hour). A well-designed and functioning system minimizes the number of violations and ensures high payment discipline in the drivers. Do not forget the requirements associated with the introduction of objective liability and the possibility of a high degree of automation of the whole process.

A practical solution for cities that want to be “green” EXISTS!
The technology used in the scanner car can also be installed on other mobile devices. Such a vehicle can be, for example, a scooter or even a bicycle.
