Mobile ALPR for Law Enforcement – ‘Electronic Blitz’
Region: Sao Paulo, Brazil
To solve the problem of unregistered vehicles traveling on Brazilian roads, AVT’s
strategic partners ISES Corp and SERTTEL have developed a cost-effective mobile solution that meets the needs of the Sao Paolo Police Traffic Enforcement Authority. The requirements for the project were to be able to set up an ‘Electronic Blitz’ location where vehicle license plate numbers could be checked and compared with the national database of vehicles in real-time and issue an infringement notice on the spot for those vehicles that are found to be breaking the law.
Loop detectors are placed close to the camera in order to trigger license plate captures. These two devices are then connected to the mobile PC located up to 20 meters away.
When a vehicle enters the ‘checking lane’ – the license plate is captured and compared to the national database of vehicles. An infringement notice is immediately issued
if the vehicle is found to be unregistered.
The driver is then issued with the infringement notice.
The ‘Blitz Electronic’ initiative has proven to be a resounding success story, with plans well underway to deploy more mobile systems nationwide to enforce the road laws in this country.
