Life through a lens: Peter Raganyi
ARH is introducing a new version of its Carmen ANPR engine (used by many detection and enforcement applications worldwide), with the new software working on video streams rather than individual frame-grabbed images.
Called Carmen Go, the technology is described as a camera-independent and auto adaptive plug and play system that extracts ANPR from any video stream – in fact up to eight video streams simultaneously on a single licence.
The company said the new system runs on a pc and cameras can be connected in a few clicks with the ANPR results coming directly from the video streams while the self-adjusting settings provide what it says are the highest recognition rates available. As Carmen Go is camera independent, existing digital cameras can be directly connected and digitised analogue streams can also be processed.
With some 27 years of experience, ARH said it has a font library that covers almost all licence plates worldwide.
