Thinking of curbing actions such as car theft, vehicle cloning, license plates tampering, and toll evasion, Pumatronix has developed COMPARE. An efficient software that allows you to find a particular vehicle within an image database by analyzing the similarity. We can compare this software to a digital fingerprint, where each vehicle will have your own digital description in a small bytes structure which will be used in the comparison being much more efficient then image comparison. ALPR will no doubt continue to be an essential technology for traffic surveillance, but complementary methods will have an important role in handling more difficult and complex requirements – such as finding a vehicle without a visible and legible license plate.
COMPARE is a innovative software which use the last techniques of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to construct a digital description of each image. Also, it uses and efficient method to search one vehicle of reference into an image database of more than a million vehicles. It can be used for tolls, enforcement, public security and parking garages. Search for a car when you know the license plate can be easy, but how can you find a vehicle which does not have a license plate? COMPARE can give to you a small list of vehicles with the same aspect, considering stickers, paint failure and other characteristics, saving time in the search.
