A SharpX mobile installation is comprised of many hardware components. Before installing these components, it is recommended to familiarize yourself with the hardware components used in a typical installation.

If you are installing a SharpX system where the LPR Processing Unit includes the AutoVu™ Navigation option, all of the components of the AutoVu™ system connect directly to the LPR Processing unit. .

  Component What you should know
A SharpX cameras SharpX cameras can be attached to the vehicle using a hardmount or magmout.
B LPR Processing Unit This is the main processing component of the SharpX system. The LPR Processing Unit is sometimes referred to as the “trunk unit” because it is typically installed in a vehicle's trunk.
C Tire/Aux Imaging Adapter Module If the installation includes wheel imaging cameras that require a BNC connection, you will need to install the Tire/Aux Imaging Adapter Module. Wheel imaging does not apply to University deployments.
D Satellite navigation antenna The GNSS satellite navigation antenna is connected to the LPR Processing Unit and works in conjunctions with the NAV inputs to provide precise georeferencing for the vehicles associated with the plate reads. For more information on which satellite navigation hardware to install, see Navigation hardware options.
E Navigation inputs Genetec Patroller™ can use the car’s Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) or odometry sensor signal in conjunction with GNSS satellite navigation information to provide precise georeferencing for the vehicles associated with the plate reads. For more information on the NAV connections, see Connecting the AutoVu™ Navigation Option on the LPR Processing Unit
F Wheel imaging cameras (optional) Wheel imaging cameras are used for virtual tire-chalking technology that takes images of the wheels of vehicles to prove whether they have moved between two license plate reads.Wheel imaging does not apply to University deployments.
G Vehicle’s ignition Yellow wire is connected to vehicle’s ignition.
H Ground Black wire is grounded to vehicle’s frame or chassis.
I Vehicle’s battery Red wire is connected from the power cable through a 15A ATO/ATC in-line fuse to vehicle’s battery.
J Power cable in-line fuse Red wire is connected to vehicle’s battery. The fuse is installed as close to the battery as possible.
K Mobile data computer (MDC) For instructions on how to install the in-vehicle MDC mount, refer to your mount manufacturer’s documentation.
L Satellite navigation receiver For systems where the LPR Processing Unit does not include the AutoVu™ Navigation option, a USB GPS satellite navigation receiver is connected to the in-vehicle computer. For more information on which satellite navigation hardware to install, see Navigation hardware options.
NOTE: Depending on the hardware being used, the following connections may be present on the LPR Processing Unit and are not currently use in AutoVu™ installations:
  • Tire TAGS port
  • SIM card
  • USB port
  • WLAN (back)
  • CELL DATA (back)
