The city of Delft in The Netherlands has just put their first ScanGenius mobile ALPR scanner in operation. Its purpose is enforcing the new fully digital approach for parking the city has recently taken.
In the past year, the city of Delft has adopted an approach towards fully digital parking. The goal of this approach is to make parking within the city easier and more efficient, both for the local authorities and the visitors. In practice, parking visitors only need to register their car registration number through the city website, their phone, or at the local payment stations. This gives him the formal right to park their corresponding car.
From this week, such parking subscriptions and payments are also being enforced digitally. To this purpose, the city of Delft put their first ScanGenius mobile ALPR scanner in operation. With the ScanGenius roofbox from ARVOO, the Dutch company Taxameter Centrale (TMC) supplied a total concept for this system to the local authorities.
The ALPR cameras in the rooftop box read the registration numbers of the cars parked in the street. Immediately, the scanned registration numbers are compared online to the actual database of parking rights. In case of discrepancies, special parking enforcement officers get notified on their PDA and can take action. This total concept from TMC saves these officers lots of valuable time, they can now spend on helping the drivers.
For the automatic license plate recognition within the ScanGenius system, OEM partner ARVOO has integrated Intrada ALPR as embedded OEM module from Q-Free. The panoramic video captured by the six camera units in the rooftop is processed the Q-Free software on the proprietary DSP processing platform for further handling in the process flow.
