Within First Week of Use, Rekor's Mobile LPR-2 Collected 8,900 License Plate Reads and Issued 11 Accurate Stolen Vehicle Alerts
CHANTILLY, VA / ACCESSWIRE / June 11, 2019 /Rekor Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:REKR) ("Rekor"), a leading provider of innovative vehicle recognition systems, announced today that the Company has been selected by a Northern California law enforcement agency to deploy its Mobile LPR-2 vehicle recognition system.
Rekor's Mobile LPR-2 system captures critical vehicle information such as license plate, color, make, model, and body type from a video stream at high rates of speed, and at extreme angles of view with unmatched levels of accuracy. A wide-range field view enables high-speed, simultaneous recognition of multiple vehicles on roadways with up to five lanes of traffic or multi-row parking lots. Law enforcement authorities receive invaluable data to aid official investigations, with live alerts using hot lists of known offenders and monitors of motorists to increase public safety.
Utilizing Rekor's system, the Northern California law enforcement agency collected 8,900 license plate reads and received 11 accurate stolen vehicle alerts in just the first week. This represents a significant improvement over the legacy system, which was less accurate, and where false positives would force them to deploy resources on inaccurate information.
"Law enforcement agencies rely on fast and accurate information so they can make the best decisions possible to ensure public safety. Rekor's Mobile LPR-2 solution captures vehicle information at a rate of speed and accuracy unmatched in the industry - and that officers can depend on," said Rod Hillman, Chief Operating Officer, Rekor Systems. "In just one week our technology has outperformed the legacy system, empowering the department to work smarter and safer."
Rekor's Mobile LPR-2 unit is powered by the Company's OpenALPR software engine, which incorporates the results of deep machine learning using convolutional algorithms. The Company's unique "vehicle recognition as a service" $299 per month, 36-month contract differentiates it from competing systems by eliminating both significant upfront capital and future unplanned repair and maintenance expenses. Using Rekor's extensive and continuously growing global library of vehicle images, the software is automatically updated regularly to keep abreast of changes in license plates and vehicle design modifications, ensuring continuous accuracy. The Company also offers a 4-camera embedded system (Mobile LPR-4) at $399 per month with enhanced features that can be installed by its affiliate, Global Public Safety, in a matter of hours.
