METRICI LPR PARKING MODULE

Metrici offers a dedicated module for managing a parking lot using license plate recognition technology, associated with the useful and offering features present in Metrici GUI.

This was Metrici first solution for parking lot administration. In addition to this, we bring Parking Place Detector , which has a completely different approach in managing the parking lot with AI cappablities. However, one does not exclude the other.
