How long is video retained?
Video recording is stored at the edge, near the camera, for plus 30 days. Live video is pulled into DeepInsights cloud platform on demand so it does not consume your cellular bandwidth.
How long can I search for license plates?
A small amount of plate metadata and the image of the plate is stored securely in the cloud for more than 60 days, making searching possible during this time. More storage capacity can be requested.
How do I search for a specific license plate and what evidence can I export?
You will use DeepInsights to search for a license plate. You can export still images of the plate, a picture of the vehicle, and associated video.
How much cellular bandwidth will I need?
The system consumes bandwidth to upload cropped images of the plates and metadata. As a rough guide, for 100,000 license plates in a month, the system will consume about 0.2 Mbps and about 2 GB per month.
How fast can vehicles be travelling?
Our solution allows us to recognize license plates at full speed on highways.
How do car lights affect accuracy?
To read the plate accurately, the system relies on an IR illuminator and cutting out visible light. One of the repercussions of this technology is the LPR camera is usually unable to provide much additional information about the vehicle itself because it is so dark. For this reason, it is common to install an additional ‘context’ or ‘overview’ camera to try and capture some details about the vehicle – at the expense of license plate detail.
Can I reuse our fiber that already exists at an intersection?
Yes, the system can reuse your fiber infrastructure instead of using a cellular connection.
If it is solar powered, how does it work at night?
The on-board battery completely powers the system for up to 30 days. Also, the camera has night vision, which uses an IR illumination to provide a clear image at night.
