Using LPR to Repossess Automobiles

Author: John Honovich, Published on Mar 10, 2010

In another sign of how License Plate Recognition is the most mature and widely accepted video analytic, a national US newspaper examines how LPR is being used by "repo men" or automobile recovery businesses to find and return cars held by delinquent borrowers.

It's an interesting example of using video analytics to enhance business operations. Operators use mobile LPR systems to scan for license plates that match a list of 100,000 wanted vehicles. This allows operators to scan far greater number of vehicles and far more efficiently 'check' if a vehicle is wanted.
