What is license plate recognition?
License Plate Recognition is a technology capable to recognize and read vehicles’ license plates through optical character recognition on images or videos, always considering plate variations from Country to Country, according to their peculiarities. LPR cameras capture videos or images of license plates and convert in real-time optical data into digital information. Results can then be sent to external systems.
Usually, ALPR systems use infrared lighting to allow the camera to take pictures at any time of day and night without causing any disturbance to the drivers.

Differences between tattile lpr cameras and general cctv cameras
Tattile LPR cameras are characterized by fixed optics configured according to the customer installation layout and application. That provides a great added value compared to the CCTV cameras since fixed optics grant higher reliability as they are not subject to mechanical solicitations whilst CCTV are.
Most important is that, in general, CCTV cameras capture a continuous video stream that, only on a second stage, is processed at a Backoffice level to obtain the license plate recognition. This leads to the necessity to have additional computational power outside the camera. While on Tattile ALPR cameras, all the process is performed onboard and the data (already processed) can be sent directly to the end-user.
