• Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)

Improved convenience with ANPR

Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is one of the most effective identification options available in our ParkID parking management system. ANPR provides short-term parking customers and frequent visitors such as subscribers with additional convenience. The flow of vehicles while entering and exiting the parking facility is significantly speeded up and the need for physical tickets or cards is typically eliminated. This also provides new options for subscribers and for making online bookings, purchasing online parking tickets, and introducing ticketless parking.

How does Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) work?

Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) within our ParkAdvance product line is a smart solution for reading and recognizing license plates. WPS Parking Solutions’ ANPR facility consists of a state-of-the-art camera featuring dual-sensor technology and license plate recognition and is fully integrated into the ParkID software platform. This allows the license plate recognition system to operate seamlessly, while users have access to reports on usage, performance, and accuracy (among other areas).

Reliable & Innovative

  • The use of dual sensor technology ensures maximum reliablity;
  • Fully integrated in the ParkID software platform, ensuring extended and reliable reports;
  • WPS applies the latest camera-techniques;
  • Artificial Intelligence for a self-learning and continously improving system;
  • Seamless checkout fail-over scenario's.


  • Artificial Intelligence: We use the latest camera technologies and Artificial Intelligence (AI), based on which cameras can “learn” and improve their performance over time, with the objective of delivering an even more reliable performance. Any incorrect data is collected, analyzed, and used to improve the algorithm.

  • Managing exceptions: We have designed several failover scenarios to promote the flow of traffic. If the number plate is read only partially (due to technical issues with the camera, the readability of the plate, or a data-entry error), this is managed by using a sophisticated “fuzzy matching” system. This system recognizes the number plate even if one or two characters are different.
  • User-friendly features: Automatic Number Plate Recognition also serves as the basis for various customer-friendly features and extensions to our ParkID parking management system, including the option of entering number plate details on the payment terminal (including to retrieve lost tickets), for the use of third-party database, a link to phone providers such as ParkMobile, a ticketless parking solution, the Parking Webshop and Business Parking.
