With each release, new features, enhancements, or resolved issues are added to the product.
AutoVu™ Genetec Patroller™ 6.5 includes the following new features and enhancements:
- Link plate reads from Patroller vehicles using Plate link
- Using Plate link to connect Patroller vehicles improves the detection of shared permit infractions and overtime hits when license plates are read by different Patroller vehicles. When a Patroller vehicle that is registered with Plate link enters a parking zone, it downloads all recent plate reads for the zone from other Patroller vehicles that are registered with the same account. This data sharing ensures that the system catches parking violations that would otherwise be missed
- Fuse reads from Sharp cameras
- You can now fuse plate reads from multiple cameras to improve the capture rate and
read rate. If the vehicle includes front and rear-facing cameras, enabling this
feature associates the cameras that might read the same license plate. This means
reads from both left-facing cameras are fused and reads from both right-facing cameras
reads are fused.
You might want to configure read fusing if license plates in on-street parking are sometimes missed because vehicles are parked too close together. When read fusing is activated and two Sharp cameras read one or both of the vehicle's plates, only the best plate read from the two fused cameras is kept. The other plate read is discarded.IMPORTANT: To fuse reads, you must enable the Give a confidence score for reads feature in the Analytics section of the Sharp Portal Configuration page.
