Eyes on the road: License plate recognition systems can enhance the safety of entire communities (eBook)

License plate recognition (LPR) systems are a true force multiplier. Not only can they automatically capture the identifying plate details of thousands of vehicles passing by and alert users to those of interest, their newer software capabilities can power searches by make, model and color, turn partial plates into potential hits and even identify associated vehicles and predict future travel.
