License Plate Recognition (LPR) Parking

Are your Parking Enforcement Officers still using chalk to mark tires? Maybe it's time to move into the 21st century with digital wheel imaging. Genetec's AutoVu allows your officers to automatically capture license plate numbers to enforce parking permits or time-limited zone rules and to conduct lot inventories. The AutoVu system captures license plate characters, vehicle images, time stamps and GPS coordinates, decreasing the number of parking ticket disputes and increasing compliance.

AutoVu allows parking-enforcement officers to enforce time-limit regulations without leaving their vehicle. With specialized LPR cameras, the system automatically reads surrounding vehicle plates, compares them to a database and alerts parking enforcement staff when they need to take action.

PCS Mobile recently completed a short video for TV that provides an in-depth look at license plate recognition and why we are experts in Autovu LPR.

Track off street parking with Free-Flow

AutoVuTM Free-Flow, a module of Genetec’s AutoVu automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) solution, increases parking enforcement efficiency by providing a real-time inventory of vehicles parked illegally in monitored parking lots.  How does it work?  Check it out:

  • The vehicle arrives.  License plate number and arrival time is captured.
  • Parking time is purchased through connected pay stations or mobile applications.
  • Parking time expires.  Configurable grace period is enacted.
  • Grace period ends.  Vehicle is added to enforcement lists.  Lists are automatically distributed to enforcement officers.
  • Officer issues violation ticket. Vehicle status is automatically updated in back office.
  • Vehicle exits.  License plate and exit time is captured.

One of the best parts?  The system immediately alerts officers of returning scofflaws’ arrival and location.  As the word gets out, scofflaw compliance increases. (Just ask parking department officials for the City of Detroit.  They reported a 100% rate increase in the first month alone.)  If you’re looking for a simple, effective way to modernize your off-street parking operations, look no further.  You’ve found your solution.

ALPR AutoVu System

Whether you’re looking to amplify your security, maximize your parking efficiency, or empower your law-enforcement officers, Genetec’s AutoVu ALPR system significantly streamlines processes—so much so, you can locate wanted license plates even when you’re not searching.  Impressive?  Yes.  But that’s not all.  Designed for fixed or mobile applications, the system can be used to:

  • Simplify parking management, improve enforcement productivity and boost parking compliance.
  • Enforce all parking rules simultaneously by seamlessly incorporating a broad network of interconnected payment and parking-enforcement systems.
  • Manage all hotlists from one system, including allowing you to choose whether or not to share hits with outside organizations.
  • Extend the boundaries of your security system to lots previously unprotected.
  • Reduce administrative and operational costs.
  • Improve overall (paying) customer experience. (Scofflaws will obviously experience a marked decline in satisfaction.)
  • Solidify your organization’s “green” reputation by reducing greenhouse emissions (a gateless option eliminates idling at entry and exit gates).

Coupled with our design, installation, integration and support expertise, state and local governments, law enforcement, and colleges and universities can quickly reap the tangible benefits of this premier ALPR solution.
