ANPR, or Automatic Number Plate Recognition, is a system that can be seen being used across the country and can be used for many different purposes including offence prosecution for drivers with no license to traffic and parking monitoring.
Number plate recognition cameras use Optical Character Recognition to identify the characters on a number plate. These are then usually stored in a central database. If the cameras themselves are set up for ANPR they can be used to cover a surprisingly large amount of space.
Private uses for ANPR include parking management. Pay and display car parks can be difficult to monitor regularly and routinely. However, by installing ANPR cameras at the entrance and exit it is possible to accurately locate every car that enters and exits, therefore determining how long they have spent within the car park.
