Member News: SmartLPR Access NA License Plate Recognition Units Now at Carpark 49, Toronto

The Toronto Parking Authority reopened Carpark 49, a former surface parking lot that is now a 153-space modern parking garage. Our SmartLPR Access NA units for license plate recognition are placed at the entries/exits of the newly modernized Carpark 49 parking garage, allowing vehicle access based on license plate information.

After the completion of our first project in Ontario, we are extremely proud of the amazing work done by our software developers which has been of utmost importance for achieving good recognition rates in such a complicated scenario. According to our LPR-engine Chief Developer, Úrsula González, “Ontario plates combined with the weather conditions of Eastern Canada required a very specific work in order to extract the plate information despite of the salt, dust and air bubbles. However, working to cope with this type of elements always helps us improve the performance of our units.”

Our SmartLPR Access NA units provide high license plate recognition rates even for complex plates as the Canadian ones, being able of analyzing the particular features of the plates (the colour of the characters, of the background, etc.) and associate them with the Canadian state to which they belong.
