Carmen® Box

A camera-independent device for adding
ANPR and MMR data to any video stream


Based on the NVIDIA® Jetson Nano™, Carmen® Box is a standalone device that allows you to enhance your IP camera with plate recognition function. Make and model recognition (MMR) is also available via Carmen® ANPR Cloud.

Connect it to your PoE-supported camera and your network to get license plate data and event-based video recordings. The easy-to-use interface helps with the proper settings. The IP video stream gets forwarded to your database, complete with ANPR and MMR data.

The device provides accurate vehicle and plate data for traffic analysis. You can create an access control system without reconstruction and downtime using the stream of an overview camera, or monitor traffic using an existing CCTV security system. Carmen® Box also natively supports GDS, our database middleware for event storage, analytics, and data visualization.
