On-board license plate recognition systems for Brussels Police

Zenitel : 24 November, 2008  (Application Story)
Belgian police take delivery of AutoVu ANPR systems for installation in Brussels patrol cars in an attempt to reduce car theft in the city
On-board license plate recognition systems for Brussels Police
Zenitel announces an exciting new contract between its System Integration business in Belgium and the Anti-Aggression Brigade of the Brussels Police Department. Zenitel Belgium has deployed Genetec's IP license plate recognition (LPR) system AutoVu to help combat car theft in the city.

The installation, which is already up and running, involves six AutoVu Sharp cameras that can be interchangeably mounted on ten police vehicles that have been pre-cabled and pre-configured for ease of portability.

Brussels is the first region in Belgium to test the solution and so far the authorities are very pleased with the results. In the first three weeks of testing, the AutoVu solution, the police have been able to recover nine stolen vehicles. 'We are amazed with the accuracy of the system and could not be happier with our investment,' the head of the Anti-Aggression Brigade in Brussels said in a statement. AutoVu's touch-enabled interface, which automatically alerts officers of stolen vehicles as the plate is scanned by the LPR camera, has been especially appreciated, he added.

Zenitel proposed the LPR solution to the Brussels Police Department. Prior to the AutoVu solution, officers would manually check license plates by memorizing the plates of wanted vehicles or comparing plates on suspicious vehicles to printed lists or a database on a palmtop. Now, the officers of the Brussels Anti-Aggression Brigade are using the AutoVu solution exclusively.

Based on the success so far, the brigade plans to purchase another four units and is looking to further expand the application to include the detection of vehicles without car insurance.
