In a City Parking Enforcement with Wheel Imaging system, Genetec Patroller™ uses wheel images taken by “tire cameras” as additional evidence of whether or not a parked vehicle has moved even a small distance.

For example, when you get an overtime hit, you can look at an image of the vehicle’s wheels and see by the valve stem or other reference point (for example, a crack in the hubcap), that the vehicle hasn’t moved. This photographic evidence can help prove the overtime offense if the driver claims to have moved the vehicle, and then parked again in the same area.

Here is a Genetec Patroller™ vehicle with a Sharp camera and a single tire camera.

You cannot do wheel imaging on both sides of a street at the same time.

For AutoVu™ installations that include wheel imaging cameras, the ALPR Processing Unit must include the Navigation option. This provides the system with additional navigation information to ensure that the vehicle's wheel is visible in the image.
