Genetec Patroller Release Notes 6.5 SR3

Genetec Patroller™ 6.5 SR3

AutoVu™Genetec Patroller™ 6.5 SR3 is a limited availability release.

Genetec Patroller™ 6.5 SR3 includes the following new features:
Shared permit hits in Plate link
The Plate link feature in Genetec Patroller™, which shares license plate reads between patrol vehicles, can now detect if vehicles with the same shared permit are parked in zones that use different permit restrictions.
Auto-accept overtime and permit hits
Additional settings have been added to the Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool which let you modify the patrol vehicle operator workflow to remove the need to manually accept hits.

From the Operation page in Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool, the following settings are available:

  • Overtime tab:
    • Auto-accept overtime hits
  • Permits tab:
    • Auto-accept permit hits
    • Auto-accept shared permit hits
Improved plate read location accuracy
You can now add additional precision to the latitude and longitude values associated with license plate reads. This precision might be required if, for example, ticketing agents are dispatched from a head office when infractions are detected by patrol vehicles. Note that to provide this additional precision, you must enter camera position measurements the Sharp Portal. For more information on defining the camera position, see Configuring camera settings for the SharpX in the Sharp Administrator Guide 11.7.
AutoVu™ Navigation available in stand-alone mode
When Genetec Patroller™ is installed in stand-alone mode, the system can now access the AutoVu™ Navigation hardware in the patrol vehicle's LPR Processing Unit. This allows the system to associate accurate location information with license plate reads and hits.
Dash character in exported license plate read
Using the new #ActualPlate# attribute in the HitExportTemplate.xml template, you can now include the dash character in exported plate reads. For example, the license plate ABC-123 can be exported as follows:
  • Using the default line <PlateRead>#PLATE_READ#</PlateRead>, the exported plate read is ABC123.
  • If you replace the default with <PlateRead>#ActualPlate#</PlateRead>, the dash is included. The exported plate read is ABC-123.
Dilution of precision analytics
When using the Hit export plugin, you can now include several new analytics that measure the dilution of precision (DOP) of the global positioning satellites.

For satellites to accurately triangulate your location, they should ideally be spaced as far apart as possible in the sky. DOP describes the temporary reduction of the ability of the system to precisely geocode your location due to the current position of the satellites.

The following plate read analytics fields are available through the HitExportTemplate.xml file. The read analytics can be accessed using the generic #Analytics()# token.

  • GeometricDop
  • PositionDop
  • TimeDop
  • HorizontalDop
  • VerticalDop
  • EastingDop
  • NorthingDop
Parking Enforcement Essential
The new Parking Enforcement Essential license is now available for Genetec Patroller™. The Essential configuration is similar to the City configuration, with the following exceptions:
  • You can configure the system for either overtime enforcement or permit enforcement, but not both.
  • You cannot configure shared permits.
  • Auto-selection of overtime zones is disabled.
  • Plate link is disabled.
  • Wheel imaging is disabled.
