Turing LPR And Advanced Vehicle Analytics Tested

By Rob Kilpatrick, Published Dec 15, 2021, 11:46am EST

Turing has introduced LPR and vehicle make, color, and body type analytics to its Turing Vision VSaaS only a few weeks after our original test.

IPVM Image

We tested vehicle metadata and license plate recognition examining:

  • Issues with missed LPR reads and missing metadata
  • Alerts on parked vehicles and the usability issues they cause
  • LPR accuracy on standard and specialty plates and stacked characters day and night
  • Vehicle make, body style, and color analytic accuracy
  • LPR and analytic configuration and search

Readers should also see our tests of Turing's VSaaS and their Smart Series NVR and cameras, used in this test.
