Extend your view of ANPR cameras

Get more than just license plate recognition. On-board intelligence, built-in triggering, make-and-model recognition, speed measurement.
Adapts to all light conditions and endures even the harshest of weathers.
That’s all yours with Vidar.

Why Vidar is more than a regular ANPR camera

It’s an all-in-one traffic enforcement unit with integrated vehicle detection and extensive data collection:

License plate recognition

Vidar is explicitly designed for ANPR-ready imaging: it always captures vehicles in a way that is the best input for an ANPR engine.

Speed measurement

Make road traffic safer – from cities to highways – by adding the certified speed measurement module that automatically detects speedsters.

Built-in triggering

With Vidar, you won’t have trouble connecting and integrating external triggers. The camera’s software applies intelligent analytics to perform automatic vehicle detection.

Make, model, and color identification

In addition to license plate reading, some models run on-board vehicle identification to detect vehicles’ make, model, and even color.

Setup is a breeze

Forget lengthy installation and complicated setup tasks. This traffic monitoring camera is smart enough to guide integrators through the steps and automatically tune itself for the best settings.

Smart positioning

The gyroscope calculates the tilt of the camera, while the on-board laser defines the distance. With these, the camera sets the focus sharp in the background. It's just as easy as it sounds.

Automatic image settings

No intervention needed. Brightness, day/night modes are all auto-adjusted by the camera. The device is so intelligent that it automatically applies the most suitable settings for the ever-changing light conditions.
