Electronic vehicle registration.

Automated vehicle recognition and registration data access.

It used to be that authorities needing vehicle registration information had to call in to a central office and wait for a response. Now, however, registration data can be accessed quickly and easily at the touch of a button. Electronic Vehicle Registration (EVR) combines automated vehicle recognition with a centralized management of vehicle registration data. EVR systems are of great use to the police, especially in countries where many vehicles are not properly registered or insured, or where theft rates are high.

 

Automated processes for added traffic safety and security.

Automating processes contributes to improved traffic safety and security. One example is the automatic recognition of vehicles that have not undergone the required technical inspections. Automated solutions also make it easier to detect stolen cars. They can additionally reduce tax evasion by providing the authorities with access to information on vehicles on the road whose owners have not paid the vehicle tax. The system functions by means of monitoring stations set up at strategic points. These stations are equipped with video cameras that identify the number plate using ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition). They can also read electronic registration tags affixed to the vehicles. Extensive security precautions prevent unauthorized access and misuse of the data obtained.

Many options to expand the system.

Once an Electronic vehicle registration system has been set up, other applications can be added to the infrastructure. These range from payment solutions (e.g., for toll collection or parking fees) and data collection/evaluation for intelligent traffic management (e.g., for dynamic route planning), all the way to city access solutions.

  Variety of applications

  • Our EVR solutions are highly scaleable. They can be implemented in both small, local EVR installations, as well as large-scale nationwide systems.
  • The software architecture supports many different application scenarios. The system is able to process data from different sources and in different formats.
  • The availability of comprehensive analysis options ensures that additional solutions for enforcing legal requirements and for intelligent traffic management can be added.

Vehicle recognition and comprehensive data analysis provide for added safety to Sorrentina Highway

Sorrentina Highway in southern Italy (SS145) is the site of frequent traffic accidents, especially in the summer months when tourist traffic is high. Together with the University of Salerno and Schneider Electric, we carried out a project designed to analyze the driving behavior of vehicles along the 3,800-meter-long route, particularly at the entrance to the 1,400-meter Galleria San Marco Tunnel. The data gathered are used to improve traffic safety and security conditions. Displays provide warnings about vehicles that are passing in a parallel lane, and drivers are notified of whether their speed is suited to the traffic situation. Nine video cameras for Automatic Number Plate Recognition / Automatic License Plate Recognition (ANPR/ALPR) are added to supplement the cameras already in place for surveillance of traffic conditions.
