Vision Components’ new CARRIDA software library enables fast, precise license plate recognition

Carrida camera

Introducing the new tool CARRIDA, embedded imaging expert Vision Components presents a high-performance, hardware-independent OEM software designed for integration into a wide range of surveillance systems. With a typical processing time of 30 ms and a recognition accuracy of more than 96%, the new ALPR/ANPR library (Automatic License Plate / Automatic Number Plate Reader) is very fast and precise.

It reliably identifies even dirty, damaged or skewed license plates. The software can be used throughout the world, and country codes on license plates are recognized with more than 90% accuracy. Two-line vehicle plates are also recognized without any problem. Suboptimal or changing lighting conditions do not affect operation.

CARRIDA is suitable for use with Windows- or Linux-based mobile or embedded systems and reads all common still image and video formats. The tool automatically recognizes all plates displayed in one image. Typical applications include access control, toll and speed control, traffic analysis, and management of transport fleets. An API enables integration into applications via the programming languages C/C++, .NET, Borland Delphi, Python, or C#.

Vision Components provides software versions for both standing and moving vehicles. Further information is available at
