Hanwha Techwin has launched Wisenet Road AI, a powerful new line of Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) cameras that feature Make, Model, and Colour Recognition (MMCR) to identify vehicles using AI technology. The cameras support real-time viewing, event monitoring, forensic search and a range of widgets and graphs that display daily/weekly/monthly traffic statistics.
With multiple types of classifications including car, SUV, van, light commercial vehicle, truck, bus and motorcycle, users can search based on a number of attributes including date/time, license plate, photo, type, brand, model and colour. In addition to displaying plate and vehicle attributes, the Road AI edge-based app also supports black/white list event notification.
The application can reportedly support up to 10,000 detailed records, including the images of plate and vehicles, on the LPR camera’s internal SD card. In addition to camera-based storage and search features, Wisenet Road AI integrates with popular VMS providers such as Genetec, Milestone and Hanwha’s own Wisenet WAVE. Event notifications, descriptive metadata and traffic metrics are always accessible, even with a simple browser interface.
For low-mid speed applications, the PNV-A9081RLP and PNO-A9081RLP cameras are ideal for community traffic observation and parking applications. For higher speed applications, the new global shutter-based TNO-7180RLP supports LPR and MMCR at up to 155 MPH with 18x zoom and powerful IR for long-range reads up to 165 feet at any time of day.
Wisenet Road AI cameras, with the embedded and permanently licensed Road AI application, require no external application to read license plates or other vehicle attributes. The cameras are also easy to install due to their wide angles and high-resolution 4K sensors, allowing flexibility and different deployment options than traditional LPR cameras that carefully line up to capture numbers accurately.
“Our goal was to design a new generation of cost effective LPR cameras that deliver the benefits that deep learning AI algorithms can provide, in terms of both image quality and data capture performance,” said Ray Cooke, SVP, Products, Solutions and Integrations, at Hanwha Techwin America. “The ease of installation, enhanced accuracy and meaningful traffic insights derived from the Road AI solution bring a new level of intelligence to businesses, campuses and smart city developers.”
The new Wisenet Road AI solution will be on display at Hanwha Techwin’s booth #1641 at GSX 2021.
