ANPR System improves Canadian border integrity.

Perceptics : 25 September, 2007  (Application Story)
Number plate recognition system on US and Canadian border to speed up detection of known suspicious vehicles and improve capture efficiency whilst enabling greater freedom of passage for most travellers.
Perceptics has received a contract award with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to upgrade technology and equip additional inbound traffic lanes for its Integrated Primary Inspection Line Highway License Plate Reader (LPR) program. This contract and partnership with the CBSA and Canada Revenue Agency provide Canadian Customs officers with LPR systems that allow real-time queries to databases containing important and necessary information to secure Canada's borders.

Perceptics will execute a large-scale replacement of the LPR equipment used in Canada's Primary Automated Lookout System at border crossings as a part of the broad Canadian government Integrated Primary Inspection Line program. The new LPR equipment will correctly read the license plate number -- including stacked characters common on commercial plates -- and identify the province/state of origin on at least 95 percent of vehicles with a rear license plate, compress the image, and display important information instantly for the Border Services officers. Vehicles with a clear record of lawful trade and travel will go through quickly; vehicles of concern can be detained for proper clearance. The Perceptics LPR system uniquely captures the state and province identification, supports the addition of any new license plate designs from either country and meets CBSA authentication and authorization requirements. Important to the Canadian/American cold weather border climate, the LPR operates in temperatures ranging from -30°C to +50°C keeping the technology working effectively in the cold weather. Perceptics will also provide 24/7 customer service help desk support to keep these systems operational.

"Canada's CBSA is committed to investing in a smart, secure border," said Guy Lalonde, IT Director of CBSA's People Systems Divisions. "This significant upgrade to the Perceptics LPR systems will help facilitate the smooth flow of legitimate trade and travel, while keeping our border secure. This initiative will support our national security and public safety priorities. The new and additional LPR equipment will contribute to our ability to ensure the security and prosperity of Canada by managing the access of people and goods to and from Canada."

"The US / Canada borders are very important gateways for tourism and commercial trade between the two countries and Perceptics is proud and pleased to provide state-of-the-art LPR equipment and technology to the front line officers at the border," said John Dalton, president of Perceptics. "The officers will receive reliable, verifiable and easy-to-use information immediately from the LPR systems. Their use of this technology is critical in their daily fight to keep the borders secure. We are delighted to be their partners and their preferred vendor to date, and we look forward to a successful execution of this project and others in the future."
