SmartLPR Access Can Read the Arabic Alphabet and Recognize License Plates Across the UAE

In order to ensure secure access control for car parks and the automation of guidance systems, it is very important to use license plate recognition systems to identify vehicles quickly, accurately, and automatically. For this reason, Quercus Technologies improves the reading capacity of both its license plate recognition cameras, called SmartLPR Access, and its sensors for vehicle detection, video recording, and license plate recognition, Spot Control.

The parking solution provided by Quercus Technologies already allows access control in many airports and hospitals in Southwest Asia, providing security, vehicle control, and a significant increase in mobility within the car park. At present, its products for access control to facilities and at each space recognize plates with the Arabic alphabet. This helps countries in the Middle East to benefit from the many parking solutions offered by Quercus Technologies.

Seven emirates make up the United Arab Emirates, and each has a different jurisdiction. This means that, with the exception of some official plates, each emirate issues its own plates, both for regular and special vehicles. Although this may seem difficult when it comes to implementing improvements in license plate recognition cameras, Quercus Technologies has managed to recognize each of the most complex license plate formats that exist: a clear example are the plates of vehicles in Abu Dhabi.   

It is also worth noting that, in another Middle Eastern country, Oman, the license plate recognition software is already able to distinguish between different types of plate. Some of them are the plates of the state police force, exportation, the diplomatic corps, and even the plates that we define as VIP.

The company's research and development team work daily to improve the license plate recognition products in all regions. This has led to more and more countries and areas being recognized by their cameras and car park guidance systems. This past year, part of the efforts have focused on including updates and improvements in regions such as Kazakhstan and Oman, countries where calligraphy and grammar are the same. At Quercus Technologies, we believe in the importance of continuing to bring improvements and new updates to our products, adapting to the needs of each client, wherever they come from, and making an unbeatable user experience.
