AI-enabled license plate recognition (LPR) is a revolutionary innovation, transforming the face of security in numerous sectors. The seamless integration of artificial intelligence (AI) with surveillance systems has amplified the efficiency of LPR, making it a go-to solution for businesses and law enforcement agencies. Moreover, platforms like VAISense are leveraging the prowess of video analytics and intelligent sensing to redefine detection across varied business scenarios.

Surveillance systems have come a long way since the commercial availability of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) in the United States in 1949. The rise in the use of surveillance cameras for security applications in both corporate and public spaces is a testament to this evolution. The problem with CCTV has been a problem for over 70 years- you need professionals attending the monitoring of all of the security camera feeds. This results in costly wage hours and training, as well as false-positives. The integration of AI into these CCTV systems has further boosted their effectiveness, making surveillance less time-consuming and more precise.

VAISense’s AI-enabled LPRs are rife with features, such as allowing businesses to change parking structures, eliminating gates for a more convenient access. LPRs can instantly notify security if an unauthorized vehicle enters the area, thanks to its innovative push alert systems. AI-enabled LPRs are not just for assisting in criminal investigations. They serve a purpose in other industries too, thanks to their versatile technology. Here are some of the key features and benefits of AI-enabled LPRs:

  • Proactive Approach - Recognizing potential threats before they occur, enhancing the security of a business.
  • Identify Watch Lists - LPRs can scan for plates on specific government watch lists in case of child abduction or a similar crime.
  • Easy Search - searching by plate number will bring up all instances of vehicle being identified.
  • Convenience - Businesses no longer need to staff gates, saving on excess costs.
  • Versatility - The technology can be built upon, creating new customizable feature sets.
  • Easy Integration - VAISense does not require new cameras, we provide software that can connect to cameras already in use.
  • Real-time Alerts - In the event of an incident, all logs are saved and backed-up. The technology offers users alerts, ensuring instant notification of any issues.
  • Improved Investigation Techniques - Even partial data may be adequate to assist in an investigation, thanks to the advanced technology of AI-enabled LPRs.

The inclusion of AI in existing surveillance systems has significantly enhanced the capabilities of law enforcement agencies to fight crime. The technology allows for easy sharing of information with authorities, providing them with the necessary data to conduct an investigation. For instance, if authorities need to see every black SUV that entered your facility on a specific day, you can simply input those parameters and get a list instantly. AI technologies, such as computer vision, pattern matching, and predictive analytics, are significantly enhancing physical security.

AI has significantly refined data collection, automated its processing, and enhanced investigative techniques. The integration of surveillance systems and AI has created a faster and more proactive system. As AI continues to evolve, the possibilities of where we go next are endless. With platforms like VAISense revolutionizing detection across diverse business scenarios, we have merely scratched the surface of the capabilities and potential applications of this technology.
