COLUMBIA, Md. — Rekor Systems, a provider of innovative vehicle recognition systems, announces it has been selected by Nokia to provide automatic license plate reader (ALPR) solutions.
Rekor’s solutions, powered by artificial intelligence-based OpenALPR software, will be offered to Nokia’s worldwide customer-base for use within Nokia smart city offerings.
“We’re proud to be selected by a global leader like Nokia to provide our industry-leading ALPR solutions to Nokia, and to partner with a company that is at the forefront of smart cities and IoT technology,” says Robert A. Berman, president and CEO of Rekor. “Our ALPR solution, powered by OpenALPR, is an ideal addition to the Nokia smart city offerings, as our technology is super scalable and has multiple applications within law enforcement, traffic monitoring, public/private security, transportation, logistics and more. We’re excited for the opportunity to work with a market leader and for the exposure to their vast global clientele searching for a leading ALPR solution like ours.”

Rekor’s high accuracy solution outperforms traditional ALPR technology and is ideal for conditions present in live city environments.
