Automatic Number Plate Recognition Market to reach Worth of US$4674.0 Mn by 2025, Garnering Ample Gains from Commercial Deployment

Global Automatic Number Plate Recognition Market: Snapshot

Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) is a type of surveillance method which uses optical character recognition technology to read the license plates on vehicles. ANPR systems comprises of hardware such as camera, frame gabber and other related equipment as well as software modules. ANPR systems can be used with existing closed-circuit television or road-rule enforcement cameras. The automatic number plate recognition systems identify the number plate on the vehicle, recognize the characters, convert them into digital data and store the license plate number in a database.
