AutoVu™ is the IP license plate recognition (LPR) system of Security Center that automates the reading and verification of vehicle license plates.
AutoVu™ Sharp cameras capture license plate images, and send the data to Patroller or Security Center to verify against lists of vehicles of interest (hotlists) and vehicles with permits (permit lists). You can install AutoVu™ in a fixed configuration (e.g. on a pole in a parking lot), or in a mobile configuration (e.g. on a police car). You can use AutoVu™ for scofflaw and wanted vehicle identification, city-wide surveillance, parking enforcement, parking permit control, vehicle inventory, security, and access control.
The following diagram shows how a typical AutoVu™ system works:
