You can enter the required settings for Genetec Patroller™ to know when to grab wheel images from the tire cameras.
Before you begin
What you should know
- Open Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool .
Go to Use overtime, then turn on
Use tire images.
, turn on
Configure the following:
NOTE: You should only need to modify the Tire cam-to-plate distance parameter. The other settings should be adequate for any parking enforcement scenario.
- Wheel imaging enforced
- Select Mandatory or Optional
from the drop-down list. If you select optional, Genetec
Patroller™ users can enforce a hit without
confirming wheel images.NOTE: Set this to Optional if you have enabled the Auto accept overtime hits setting.
- Tire cam-to-plate distance
- This distance tells Genetec Patroller™ how far to travel (after the initial plate read) before it starts grabbing wheel images.
- Maximum vehicle length
Patroller™ will stop grabbing wheel
images after it has travelled the Tire cam-to-plate distance + Maximum
TIP: The distance you enter should be based on the general size of the vehicles in your patrol area. For example, vehicles in Europe tend to be smaller than in the United States.
- Distance travelled before saving
- When grabbing wheel images, this distance tells Genetec Patroller™ how often to grab an image. For example, the default 0.3 meters means that an image is grabbed every 30 centimeters.
Wheel imaging calibration is now complete.
- The Sharp reads a parked vehicle’s plate.
- After the Genetec Patroller™ vehicle travels 4 meters (if Tire cam-to-plate distance = 4), Genetec Patroller™ starts grabbing wheel images from the tire camera.
- Genetec Patroller™ grabs an image every 0.3 meters (if Distance travelled before saving = 0.3).
- Genetec Patroller™ keeps grabbing images until it travels 11 meters (if Maximum vehicle length = 11) past the initial read.
