Intelico and Canon demonstrate advanced number plate recognition capture for transport scenarios

21 Jun 2016

Intelico and Canon at IFSEC

At IFSEC, Intelico will demonstrate its Accuplate technology in conjunction with the Canon VB-M50B to show how these can technologies can work together to allow customers to capture crisp and clear images of licence plates, no matter the lighting conditions. Intelico’s Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) platform can capture images of three lanes of traffic on a motorway with the Canon VBH43 PTZ camera. Intelico’s solution is traditionally designed for car park situations, and was previously capable of capturing two lanes of traffic. Using Canon cameras, this can now be expanded to include monitoring of wider transport infrastructure such as motorway traffic in colour.


Accuplate’s advanced recognition engine provides industry leading accuracy and speed for vehicle access control, such as car parks at airports or retail centres. It is designed to handle the challenges that face an ANPR system, such as severe weather, damaged or personalised plates, poor lighting in covered environments, tailgating and speed or angle of approach. Setup and configuration is among the fastest in the industry, with less than ten minutes from installation to reading plates, once the server and cameras are installed.

The VB-M50B’s innovative Clear IR View Mode, which combines an IR Band Pass Filter (IRBPF), and new image processing capabilities, enable highly detailed monochrome images to be captured in superb definition at any time of the day. For ANPR situations, the IRBPF and additional infrared lighting can help cut obstructive lighting, such as vehicle headlights, to produce a clear image, particularly in low-light conditions such as in carparks or at night.
