California-based Vigilant Solutions has launched a licence plate-enabled parking (LEP) enforcement solution that uses vehicle location data to assist parking agencies in enforcing policies and collecting outstanding fines. The platform is coupled with the company’s commercial data network to help parking enforcement work more efficiently with local police officers to address violations involving on-street and off-street lots. Vigiliant’s LEP device is said to offer access to open application programming interface architecture that integrates with pay station and gated parking vendors. It confirms which vehicles have been paid for and alerts officers when offending vehicles are identified. In addition, the product offers permit-only parking management with mobile licence plate recognition (LPR) cameras, in-vehicle CarDetector mobile software and Vigilant’s web-based client portal. An LPR-equipped vehicle detects licence plates that are not permitted and sends an alert to enforcement officers.
