ANPR parking system at the Lisbon cruise ship terminal

Quercus Technologies LPR cameras monitor the entry and exit of vehicles at the Lisbon cruise ship terminal's private parking facility. The smoothest car park management system must count on automatic number plate recognition technology in the equation.

The SmartLPR Access license plate recognition cameras from Quercus Technologies have been installed at over 60 airports, 80 shopping malls. They also were installed at port facilities such as the Port of Girona, and also hospitals, condominiums and corporate offices. Now, a new installation in the Lisbon cruise ship terminal can be included in the list of access control sites of the company's Detection Division.

It is becoming more important to expedite parking access control, especially at facilities where time is of the essence for users. Airports, ports and stations are just a few prime examples. Linking access at a specific hour to a license plate number may seem unimportant. But it is one of the most significant mobility achievements in private parking facilities in recent years. 

By identifying vehicle license plates, operators can link data on rates, stay times, owners, trips and other valuable information on the vehicles that enter or leave the parking area. This information is then available for analysis by parking facility operators. It empowers them to apply dynamic rates and carry out marketing strategies according to the use of the facilities.

Parking facility companies, and others from the parking and mobility sector strive to improve the service they provide to customers and users. This makes it possible to do so based on their experience, cutting maintenance costs and reducing pollution. The LPR cameras All-in-One by Quercus Technologies are a key element for intelligent, non-intrusive, effective and frictionless access control. 

Parking facility users also benefit from license plate readers, as oftentimes it means no longer having to worry about tickets. The license plate number of every vehicle is associated with a stay, and consequently, a price. 

SmartLPR Access

These smart cameras are all-in-one units. In other words, they include all the technology necessary to read license numbers in the unit itself. The LPR camera is designed to contribute to mobility, facilitating automatic access to parking facilities and also as a security system. 

What is All-In-One technology for license plate recognition? In a single unit, the license plate detector features: a motorized lens, an OCR processor, lighting, a Wiegand output interface, inputs/outputs and an Ethernet connection. Everything required for the optimal reading of vehicle license plates.

The license plate recognition software in our LPR cameras is the market leader, among the top performers in license plate recognition reliability and security solutions. The development and improvement of this technology, which forms part of the parking and access control system, is the responsibility of the engineers on the Quercus Technologies Research and Development team.
