Aventura’s License Plate Recognition Engine (LPR/ANPR) possesses all the features a high quality license plate recognition system may requires. It is highly accurate, fail safe and stable, fast and intelligent, providing performance exceeding that of many competing license plate readers.

License Plate Information is stored in database form and is searchable by date, time, and partial (or complete) plate numbers. The plate information is also made accessible to third-party software through an API, allowing extensive use of plate data for any desired application, including black-lists, white-lists, and alarm functions.

Aventura LPR offers general-purpose license plate reading from digital pictures from any source. From megapixel images with 12-bit color depth to standard CIF recording from analog CCTV cameras, the engine processes the information available from the source imagery with accuracy approaching that of a human.

Proper LPR functionality does not require expert training. The software intelligently adapts to most applications, including various plate types and lighting conditions, without requiring the tuning of parameters and settings like some competing platforms.
