Automatic Number-Plate Recognition (ANPR)

MPS is at the forefront of adopting new technologies that will advance security systems across the UK.

We provide ANPR parking systems for private and public land, utilising the latest in ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) technology to provide a reliable and effective automatic parking management solution. We work with numerous local councils to create the best solution to monitor visitors, control unauthorised parking and increasing revenue via enforced parking limitations. Our solution comprises of ANPR Cameras, image processing servers, wireless communication devices and a cloud-based data storage platform.
MPS systems have been specifically developed for scalability, resiliency and flexibility. To ensure that any downtime is minimised, all on-site equipment is pro-actively monitored providing real-time alerting of every aspect of the platform. Most faults can be rectified remotely and any remedial action required is scheduled immediately.

Everyone has seen ANPR cameras, most noticeably on the motorways. More than being just a tool to enforce speed restrictions, ANPR camera technology has developed considerably over the last few years and is vital for police forces and other law enforcement agencies for a variety of reasons.

As a vehicle passes an ANPR camera its registration details are automatically logged and checked against a database of vehicles of interest. Information is stored, so that even if a vehicle is not known to be of interest at the time, evidence can be used after the fact if the circumstances are appropriate.

ANPR has proven to be important in terms of locating stolen vehicles, tracking uninsured drivers and vehicles, and is also a powerful tool used to prevent acts of terrorism and organised crime. More commonly it is used on public and private land to deter unauthorised parking, set parking restrictions and act as a revenue stream for toll roads, local councils and supermarkets.

At present the UK has approximately 8500 ANPR cameras in place, submitting between 25 and 35 million records daily to the National ANPR Data Centre. This data must be handled very carefully and there are strict rules and guidelines surrounding how it is managed. At Maximum Protection Services we continue to set standards in security, and our staff are both highly skilled and highly knowledgeable in the fields of ANPR and Data Security.

At Maximum Protection Services we work with you to ensure that any system is customised to your needs. Your database can contain information associated with a number plate including model, colour, even driver details. Permitted periods may be defined to only allow access to certain vehicles at certain times – depending on your requirements.
