Tolling and Automated
revenue capture

License plate imaging perfect for the open road, now open for business.

The LPR-ETC plate reader is a highly versatile and intelligent platform that ensures your tolling operations capture discrete identification data from the largest possible percentage of vehicles traveling on your roads. Configured with white light or infrared illumination, this product can be fine-tuned to obtain plate data even when other systems can’t. Its fixed-mount design expedites installation, and its streamlined design eliminates common failure points, thus increasing MTBF to ensure maximum uptime and reliability. Each plate reader includes our savant-caliber OCR engine. With daily exposure to plates of all varieties from across North America, our OCR brain receives routine “training” to improve its accuracy and ability to correctly interpret challenging images that is unparalleled in the toll industry.

Applications

The imaging system trusted for U.S. national security is now optimized for the rigorous revenue collection and traffic flow demands of the tolling industry. The Perceptics performance guaranteed, ultra-accurate license plate reader helps maximize your market penetration and paves the way to national interoperability.
