Panasonic i-PRO Partners With Vaxtor for ALPR Apps on AI-Capable Cameras
With analytics carried out on the edge of i-PRO cameras, the on-camera solution does not need to stream video to a PC/server.
ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. — Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions and Vaxtor, an analytics company, announce a global collaboration for the latest generation of its automated license plate recognition software, VaxALPR, to run on i-PRO AI-enabled models.
These AI-capable cameras can now integrate Vaxtor’s edge application — reducing system costs and complexity, according to the company.
With analytics carried out on the edge of i-PRO cameras, the on-camera solution does not need to stream video to a PC/server ensuring efficient operation on all networks, including 4G. The app runs embedded on the company’s AI cameras with per-camera licensing and no minimum camera count. It’s also integrated for use with the i-PRO Video Insight video management system.
The AI solution is well-suited for a range of applications, including city surveillance, parking, access control, security, law enforcement and intelligent transportation systems (ITS). This latest on-camera VaxALPR application is said to have recognition rates above 99% and is suitable for high- and low-speed traffic environments.
“We have been incredibly impressed by the processing power of the i-PRO cameras, the open system and the flexibility and support of its technical team,” says Juan Vercher, CEO and founder of Vaxtor. “This combination of powerful hardware and collaboration will enable us to offer additional unique functionality to our joint customers. It’s an exciting future ahead.”
Moving forward, Vaxtor also plans to integrate its other object character recognition (OCR) applications, including its generic OCR reader VaxOCR Genesis, for use on i-PRO cameras. The company says this user-programmable, multi-functional OCR will open a whole new range of uses beyond security, including stock auditing, asset tracking and logistics, and for any automation processes that include tracking of numeric codes.
“i-PRO is focused on building strong partnerships with leading third-party solutions providers. This global collaboration with Vaxtor allows us to deliver advanced ALPR technology on i-PRO’s industry-leading cameras,” says Adam Lowenstein, director of product management, Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions. “Together, i-PRO and Vaxtor offer AI applications for the future.”
