HTS to launch new C50 all-in-one high-speed LPR system at Intertraffic 2010

Developer of optical character recognition (OCR) computer vision systems, Hi-Tech Solutions Ltd (HTS), is to launch a new all-in-one high-speed license plate recognition (LPR) system at Intertraffic 2010, to be held March 23-26 in Amsterdam. The new product will fit into the Israeli company’s standalone LPR product line, and is a fully enclosed unit containing all of the hardware and software required for a full LPR system package, requiring only a power supply. The new LPR system, the C50, complements the low-speed C5 system, together covering the entire speed range of vehicles.

The C50 is capable of recognizing the license plates of vehicles in traffic traveling at speeds up to 200km/h (124mph) and is designed to be easily integrated into citywide surveillance systems, free-flow toll road billing systems (ORT), or border crossings. The all-in-one enclosure will facilitate execution of mass-unit deployment, due to the elimination of local cabinets and servers at each camera location. The new system can also connect to a central server or client application with either a wireless network or HTS’s SeeData networking application and via XML protocol messages and transmits them over a TCP/IP network. Additionally, the system can be integrated with many back-office applications and systems for billing, surveillance and enforcement, as well a variety of other applications.

The C50 package includes recognition image storage of multiple license plates. All of the LPR functions are automated within the system, including self-triggering, illumination setting, image capture, license plate recognition, and comparison to a database. Packaged in a weatherproof rugged outdoor enclosure, it provides accurate recognition of the license plates numbers in all weather conditions, while it also includes a mega pixel camera in a dual- or single-recognition configuration. The basic system includes single IR or black and white camera with an integrated solid-state illumination.

An optional embedded software-based, motion detection trigger (VMD) is included and recognition results output can be transmitted over wired or wireless network. The system is based on an integrated Dual-Core Single Board Computer (SBC), which manages the unit, controls the recognition cycle and communicates with the network. The LPR system – which is effective for plate types worldwide – has embedded HTS recognition software included in the SBC, operating under Windows XP Pro. The typical configuration is one camera per lane, installed within the camera enclosure housing, in doing so reducing roadside equipment exposure and maintaining the integrity of system performance as well as hardware accessibility.
