Feature in Focus: Automatic Number Plate Recognition

ANPR automatically opens boom barriers and eases movement in a society for authorised vehicles

What is Automatic Number Plate Recognition

Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is a highly accurate system capable of reading vehicle number plates without human intervention. It makes it easy for residents to have seamless entry into their society without the security guards having to stop them and without having to sport parking stickers on their vehicles. It is a completely touchless technology that automates and secures the entry of authorised vehicles into a society.

Why get Automatic Number Plate Recognition?

This feature solves several issues commonly faced by societies such as:

  • Most societies still follow a traditional method of bookkeeping for vehicle entry/exit
  • Additional manpower is required to operate entry/exit systems
  • Traditional solutions don’t enable surveillance and authentication of vehicles, thus compromising security
  • Security personnel don’t have complete visibility over the number of cars on the property at all times or their entry and exit time
  • Long wait time at the gates can hamper convenience for residents

Benefits of Automatic Number Plate Recognition

  • Automatic entry/ exit of residents’ vehicles
  • Frees up security personnel from any logistics of vehicle management, other than maintaining an updated list of number plates
  • Real-time data on vehicular movement within a society
  • Swift, fast and secure movement of authorised vehicles
  • Digital records
  • Recognition across all scenarios

How it works

MyGate users register their vehicle details in the Household section of the MyGate App

This information is automatically synced with the ANPR integrated Central Processing Unit (CPU) at the main gate

The CPU recognises the number plate as it approaches the boom barrier as an authorised vehicle and open automatically

Users receive a notification regarding the entry/ exit of the vehicle
