Vidar ANPR camera

Get rid of lengthy ANPR camera setup once and for all

Overview

Imagine an ANPR camera that – finally! –takes the burden of manual setup off your shoulder: it adjusts itself and gets ready for your traffic enforcement project right away, on its own. How does it do that? Vidar is so smart that it automatically analyzes its environment, measures distance, recommends tilt angle, check light conditions and selects the best settings to capture vehicles and recognize license plates. It was built to ease your life and get rid of common ANPR problems like lengthy setup, missed events, inaccurate recognition and more.

Self-setup, self-diagnostics, automatic vehicle capture, built-in license plate reading, make and model recognition… are just a few of Vidar’s stunning capabilities. It’s not just a device full of practical benefits, but also an engineering merit: a design polished for perfection, abound with even more inside. Built-in laser for vehicle detection, dual optic system for multi-purpose imaging… with a range of models and functions for your project: license plate recognition, make / model / color identification, and even speed measurement. Vidar makes it all possible in the smartest way we have ever designed.

HIGHLIGHTED FEATURES

Vehicle Detection

Built-in laser trigger

Each and every vehicle gets captured by the most reliable triggering system: laser.

Self-adjustment

Self-adjustment

It is able to measure distance and tilt angle then auto-tunes the settings to achieve the best imaging for ANPR.

Dual-sensor_optics

Dual-sensor optics

Thanks to the secondary camera, you get an excellent overview image of the given road section.

all-weather

Weather-proof design

From a warm desert even to the ice-cold north, it’s a unit with steady endurance against temperature and humidity.

Self-diagnostics

Self-diagnostics

Vidar is smart enough to send signals over the network if there is a malfunction.

2_lane

Even 2-lane coverage

When using the full HD model, you can cover up to two lanes with a single camera.

vandal

Vandal-proof

Thanks to the IK10-grade design, the camera is protected against external impact.

Powered by Carmen®

In selected models, license plate recognition is performed on-board thanks to the industry-praised Carmen® engine.

The painkiller for all your ANPR headaches

Being in the traffic industry and focusing on license plate recognition for 30 years, we know well it is not easy either on the manufacturer or at the customer’s side. Such devices should ease your life, not over complicate it. With Vidar, we achieved a super-easy usage, thanks to brand new intelligent features, like:

Smart positioning

The built-in laser and gyroscope automatically helps you position the camera in order to achieve the best possible results. The gyroscope detects how much the camera is tilted while the laser sets the focus. When the camera says it’s OK – you’re done.

Automatic image settings

Automatic brightness settings, day / night modes – these are also the camera’s job and you will have no extra work with such adjustments. The device is smart enough to apply the most suitable settings for the given light conditions.

license plate recognition camera with onboard triggering

On-board triggering

You won’t need to bother with triggering either – as this ANPR camera has it integrated, thanks to the high-end laser module. This way, each vehicle is captured at the exact same spot on the road, so the license plate recognition becomes an easy job.

Once a traffic flow, now valuable data

Vidar is an all-in-one imaging and measurement device, designed to automatically analyze the traffic flow. It will supply valuable data to your system:

License plate recognition

Some models come with built-on ANPR powered by the industry-leader Carmen engine, so there’s no need for using additional software to get license plate data.

police lightbar with itnegrated analytics

Make, model and color identification

In addition to ANPR, even the brand, type and color of the vehicle can be also detected, thanks to the AI-powered algorithm.

Direction detection

Vidar is smart enough to detect vehicles moving in the wrong detection, immediately sending alerts to avoid accidents.

average speed measurement

Speed measurement

When selecting a model with the radar module extension, the data package will be extended with accurate speed information as well.

Robotic assembly for unquestionable perfection

Vidar is our first ANPR camera designed entirely for robotic manufacturing. With the fine-tuned and pre-programmed assembly we can achieve a failure rate that converges to zero and such flexible lead times that make Vidar a perfect choice for short-deadline projects as well.

Vidar is powered by Carmen®

Those Vidar models with integrated processing run Carmen® the legendary license plate recognition engine that was fine-tuned for almost 30 years (!) and used worldwide in mission critical projects. This ANPR software is our flagship product, offering coverage of more than 36,000 plate types, with exceptional recognition speed and accuracy.

Dual optics, dual color sensors

Vidar has a dual camera system with primary imaging system for license plate recognition, plus a secondary camera that you decide what to use for. It can be perfect for having an overview image of the given road section, but it can be used also as a substantial ANPR camera, capturing the traffic with different settings, so even in the most challenging light conditions (like at sunset), you can guarantee the detection and accuracy rate – and this way, the number of missed events will literally converge to zero.
