Ettlingen – Vision Components introduces what is probably world's smallest stand-alone ALPR/ANPR camera system: the CARRIDA CAM. The tiny 88 x 58 x 36 mm smart camera is based on an ARM Cortex-A9 dual core processor with Linux OS and combines the features of CARRIDA Software Engine and the VC pro Z smart camera series. Equipped with a protective housing and M12 connectors conforming to IP67 protection class, CARRIDA CAM provides optimal protection for all applications in rough environments.
The stand-alone system is suited for all outdoor applications, e.g. access control, red light enforcement and toll collection. Thanks to their very low power consumption of less than 3 W CARRIDA CAM systems can be powered via photovoltaic cells to implement fully self-sufficient applications.
Included in the package is the high-performance OEM softwareCARRIDAwhich ensures very fast and precise license plate recognition with an accuracy of more than 96%. The ALPR/ANPR library reliably identifies even dirty, damaged or skewed license plates. The camera integrates a heating system that prevents the formation of condensation water on the inside of the front screen. Suboptimal or changing lighting conditions do not affect operations either. If required, additional IR illumination or external lighting, powered via the camera, can be integrated.
The system also integrates a memory for black/whitelisting for parking management, access control can be carried out directly via I/O. CARRIDA CAM is equipped with 4 inputs and 4 outputs, 1 trigger input and 1 flash trigger output and features an Ethernet and a serial interface. An auto-focus module is optionally available.
