Quercus Technologies' license plate recognition software is adding the U.S. states of Wyoming and Nebraska to the extensive list of license plates it recognizes worldwide. They are among the increasing numbers of states and regions that are being added to the company’s list of supported countries. Improving the accuracy and reliability of license plate reading is one of the main objectives of Quercus Technologies and its solutions based on license plate reading.
For controlling parking lot accesses and automating vehicle entry and exit, it is very important to use license plate readers that identify car and motorcycle license plates efficiently. That is why Quercus Technologies is constantly striving to make the license plate recognition software of its camera-based products more accurate and reliable: both its LPR cameras and camera-based parking guidance sensors.
The overall parking solution offered by Quercus Technologies provides this access control, license plate recognition in each parking space, vehicle detection and video surveillance in a single device. The benefits of our overall solution are already being enjoyed in facilities around the world. Examples include the Dallas Children's Hospital in Texas and the New York Woodbury Common Premium Outlets shopping mall in New York.
Automatic license plate recognition system in the United States
Wyoming license plates have certain particular features, such as the rodeo horse and rider in the middle, which makes them difficult to interpret automatically. The arrangement of the first two numbers can also cause problems. Our license plate recognition software adapts to different needs and license plate types to obtain a correct reading.
Nebraska license plates came in different types which the recognition system had to be able to distinguish. The need to have license plate readers and/or sensors with LPR capable of color license plate recognition should be highlighted, as it this is a fundamental aspect for interpreting license plates in countries such as the United States.
How does license plate recognition benefit the driver experience?
All smart parking guidance systems have several devices feeding data to the parking system. It is essential that parking solutions have license plate recognition cameras in the access lanes to the parking facilities. This is because the license plate number is a fundamental piece of data that identifies the vehicle and is the only information that allows linking the vehicle to its owner and the actions performed by the user in the parking lot.
Automated parking solutions facilitate access to the facilities and improve traffic flow by reducing queues in the access lanes. Parking users, thanks to license plate recognition, can pre-book parking spaces remotely, avoiding interaction with surfaces in the parking access and payment process.
The parking experience is nowadays one of the main objectives of parking operators and owners. Driver satisfaction depends, in part, on time saving access, automated entry, exit, and easy payment. One of the objectives of intelligent parking is to build customer loyalty by applying loyalty strategies through dynamic pricing, specific rates and subscriptions.
License plate recognition software helps achieve this loyalty by detecting the usage patterns of parking users through the information interpreted by the license plate readers and, consequently, applying discounts or other marketing strategies according to the type of user and their parking usage trends.
