At the heart of 102 patrol vehicles is Enforcement Bar, which enables automatic recognition of number plates (ANPR) and 15 different vehicle classes. The delivered systems will be used in Poland to enforce payment for the new Toll Collection System of the National Revenue Administration. The system’s technology makes it possible to recognize number plates in four directions. Even at high vehicle speeds, the systemis able toachieve an efficiency rate of 98%.

Our systems can recognize number plates while the patrol vehicle is both parked or in motion, day or night. Enforcement Bar, which is mounted on the roof of the patrol vehicle, recognizes and identifies approaching vehicles that can be traveling at speeds up to 250 km/h.
