AutoVu Free-Flow from security solutions manufacturer Genetec is a new parking enforcement module for its AutoVu automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) solution. Genetec says it will help increase parking enforcement efficiency by providing a real-time inventory of vehicles parked illegally in monitored parking lots.
The system records the license plate of vehicles entering and leaving each parking lot and compares them to the list of payments received from connected pay-by-plate-enabled pay stations, permit management systems and mobile apps. Vehicles that stay beyond their purchased parking period are flagged in a live report highlighting violations awaiting enforcement. The system also identifies returning drivers and alerts parking enforcement officers.
In addition the system can be used in conjunction with mobile ALPR vehicles. Vehicles on the AutoVu Free-Flow violations list can be accessed via the back-office interface in AutoVu, or synchronised dynamically with parking enforcement vehicles using AutoVu Patroller.
