Carrida Technologies presents its Universal ALPR solution
Carrida Technologies presents its software engine for automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) at the ISC West exposition. The powerful OEM software library integrates plates from most countries in the world and covers a wide range of different applications from access control and fleet management to toll systems and red-light enforcement, as well as ITS and smart city applications. It is thus a truly universal ALPR solution. The Carrida software suite includes an AI tool for Make&Model recognition employing deep learning to ensure high recognition rates for vehicles from all over the world. This feature increases recognition accuracy in ALPR applications. Delivering very fast processing speeds of typically 15 to 20 ms per frame, it reads license plates of vehicles traveling at up to 240 km/h (150 mph) with typical recognition rates >99 % under real-world conditions. The Carrida software is easy to integrate into existing security and surveillance applications. It is fully hardware and vendor-independent and runs on Windows and Linux PCs and ARM architectures on Linux and Android. The software can be used with any C and C++ projects via an application program interface (API). The most recent news announcement from Carrida Technologies is an Android-operated software development kit (SDK). Even mid-range Android devices can easily read full HD images.
