Cameras are placed at the entrances and exits of the car park to photograph every vehicle as it arrives and leaves. The cameras produce real-time data including traffic flow, occupancy and peak times. They can also be integrated with payment terminals to expand reporting to allow you to see how people choose to pay, the tariff they pick and compare this with time stayed.
We quickly recognised that the system can be used to provide crucial car parking data to our clients.
Other benefits of ANPR:
Unlike many of our competitors, we do not rely on a fully automated process, every potential breach is reviewed by a highly trained analyst. They can quickly identify incorrectly entered registrations and other common mistakes before requesting to issue a Parking Charge Notice.
They also allow client input into how the ANPR system will work best for them. Such as increased grace periods, to allow people parking time to familiarise themselves with the process involved. Some sites even require having certain days/times that the cameras are ‘switched off’. This might be for one-off events or regular days that do not need to be enforced.
