Procedure

To generate a vehicle search report:

  1. Log on to the AutoVu Cloudrunner™ portal.
  2. Click Report tab.
    The tab displays the ALPR events captured by the cameras associated with your account. By default, the results are displayed in table view.
  3. (Optional) Configure the appearance of the report:
    • Click Choose filters and apply filters to your report.
    • Click a column heading to sort the report. Click the column heading again to sort the report in the reverse order.
      Tip: To sort the report with more than one column at a time, hold the Shift key while clicking the column headings.
    • Show and hide additional columns by clicking , selecting the columns you want to show, clearing the columns you want to hide, and then clicking . For example, if you have selected the location filter, you can hide the location columns displayed in the feed.
    • Click and drag the required columns to change the columns arrangements.
  4. Click a row to view the license plate read details.
    Plate read details
    The license plate read details are divided into the following sections:
    • Timestamp: The time when the ALPR read was captured.
    • Plate details: A context image, license plate image, plate number, and plate state of the vehicle captured in the read. You can click the following options to investigate further:
      • Click to monitor the license plate activity for the last 30 days.
      • Click to view an enlarged version of the context image.
    • Vehicle analytics: The type, make, color, and speed of the vehicle captured in the read.
    • Camera: The ALPR camera that captured the license plate read.
    • Capture location: The street, borough, city, county, state, and country where the ALPR read was captured.
    • Associated hits: The hotlist name at the time of the ALPR read. If the hotlist is renamed after the read has been sent, the read shows the previous hotlist name. The associated hits section is displayed only if the ALPR read matched against one or more hotlists.
      NOTE: AutoVu Cloudrunner™ tries to account for Optical Character Recognition (OCR) errors for characters that looks similar, such as 8 and B. For example, if the hotlist includes the plate number ABC123, and the ALPR camera detects the plate, but incorrectly reads A8C123, it still generates a hit for ABC123.
  5. Click to export the results to an Excel file.
