Axis License Plate Verifier Tested

By: Derek Ward, Published on Jul 21, 2020

Axis has historically left license plate verification to their partners, but this changed with the release of License Plate Verifier, an Axis camera application designed for low speed (<30 km/h) recognition. But how well does it work?

IPVM Image

To test Axis Plate Verifier, we purchased Axis' license plate capture camera, the Q1700-LE and examined the following:

  • How accurate are plate reads on moving and stationary vehicles?
  • How does it handle multiple plates in the scene?
  • How does it handle partial license plate reads?
  • What caused misreads?
  • How well does it integrate with other VMSes?
  • What regions are supported?
