The XML code defines the structure of the XML files generated by the SharpV. You can re-sort or remove any of the fields. The XML file name consists of the SharpV name and a unique identification number (for example, SHARPV12345_6ee17b00-82c1-466b-9fd6-003417bc82c4_lpr.xml).

Template:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<AutoVu>
   <Plate>#PLATE_READ#</Plate>
   <State>#CUSTOM_FIELDS#{State Name}</State>
   <UTCDate>#DATE_UTC#{yyyy:MM:dd}</UTCDate>
   <UTCTime>#TIME_UTC#{HH:mm:ss.fff}</UTCTime>
   <CameraName>#CAMERA_NAME#</CameraName>
   <SourceName>#SHARP_NAME#</SourceName>
   <ContextImage>#CONTEXT_IMAGE#</ContextImage>
   <PlateImage>#PLATE_IMAGE#</PlateImage>
   <LongitudeX>#LONGITUDE#</LongitudeX>
   <LatitudeY>#LATITUDE#</LatitudeY>
   <Guid>#GUID#</Guid>
</AutoVu>

Note the following:

  • Hotlist matching is not supported.
  • LocalDate, LocalTime, UTCDate, UTCTime, and TimeZone display the Windows date and time properties.
  • CameraName is set in the Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool.
  • SourceName is the SharpV name (e.g. Sharp12345).
  • ContextImage and PlateImage are encoded into text.
    NOTE: Information on context images is not applicable to SharpV ITS cameras.
  • Guid is the unique identification of the event read.
  • You can add the following custom fields to the template:
    State Name
    The SharpV attempts to read the plate’s origin in addition to the plate number (some plates include the issuing state or province). This may not be possible for all types of license plates.
    To use this field, add <State>#CUSTOM_FIELDS#{State Name}</State> to the XML, and then select State on the Analytics page of the Configuration menu in the SharpV Portal.
    NOTE: The LPR Context you are using must support the state name feature.
    Relative Motion
    When the SharpV reads a plate, it detects and displays if the vehicle is approaching or moving away.
    To use this field, add the following line to the XML:

    <RelativeMotion>#CUSTOM_FIELDS#{Relative Motion}</RelativeMotion>.

    Vehicle Type
    Certain license plates include character symbols that identify specific vehicle types (for example, taxi, transport, and so on). If the SharpV can read these symbols, it displays the vehicle type along with the other read/hit information.
    To use this field, add the following line to the XML:

    <VehicleType>#CUSTOM_FIELDS#{Vehicle Type}</VehicleType>.

  • If using FTP with GPS coordinates, you’ll need to add longitude and latitude fields.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
