cloud ANPR accuracy

Extraordinary recognition rates worldwide

ANPR Cloud boasts an accuracy level of up to 99%. The engine successfully deals with non-reflective plates, distorted images and traffic photos taken in low light. It also handles acute angles, shadows, and other visibility-reducing factors.

Suboptimal images: challenge accepted

In an ideal world your traffic system will only provide optimal images. In reality, many of the captured images will be distorted, dark, or otherwise compromised in quality. This means that you need a flexible service that handles suboptimal images with ease.

too-small-plates

Too small plates

The software is flexible enough to decipher small characters. This can be particularly important for systems that do not have a zoom view.

over-exposure

over-exposure

Contrast is key. No matter how overexposed an image is, if there is some contrast between the characters and the background, the ANPR engine will be able to decipher it accurately.

distorted-plates

Distorted plates

Vehicles captured from an angle will result in distorted plate images. Its characters, however, can still be deciphered by the engine.

slightly-blurred-characters

slightly blurred characters

You can always increase shutter speed to avoid blurred images, but what if you have no control over the camera? If the human eye can make it out, our ANPR Cloud can too.

low-light-images

Low light images

Bad weather or improper camera settings can easily result in dark images – but they won't hinder OCR performance.

images-taken-in-bad-weather

images taken in bad weather

The AI in our system reads characters even when they are partly covered by rain or snow.
