Metrici LPR

License plate recognition is Metrici primary offer for security sector and city traffic management and monitoring. Many local administration, police forces, small and big companies are using it. As a side note, this is not the first time Metrici gets top position in a contest. Previous internațional independent tests proved Metrici performance.

A german company audited the romanian company back în 2018 against biggest LPR competitors in Europe for integration with their VMS. Metrici has proved to be the best technical solution of them all.

As another example, a Romanian airport also conducted a test when chose the LPR solution for its access routes in 2019. And no surprise at all, Metrici also was named as best solution and declared winner of the auction. As the airport is planning in extinding the security integration, Metrici thinks that for the expansion of the project, any other choice would be a disqualifer, as Metrici was already voted aș the best. Any other choice would mean a lower level LPR producer.

Some other tests in Norway also found that Metrici is the best solution, and some big companies and local administration decided to use both Metrici LPR and Metrici PPD.

PPD and object recognition

Metrici recently launched Parking Place Detector (PPD) solution for managing parking spaces with the help of IP cameras.

At any given time one knows the statute of a parking place: busy or free and aș such you can monitor and manage thousands of parking places from one interface no matter where they are and the information can be send to mobile applications or LED displays to alert and direct the drivers. Started on this AI based object recognition engine, in this case vehicles, Metrici has developed other applications: such as traffic management. Metrici knows how many vehicles are in an image and what is their type: car, van, bus, truck or bike. Thus one can command traffic lights or LED display depending on traffic load and generates statistics and reports.

Metrici QR Code Recognition

QR detection engine is meant for securing the access control. This can be used în cross checking with other Metrici engines, such as LPR or other third party software and hardware. This engine cand also be used in monitoring a production unit or for transport companies.

Metrici Container Code Recognition

The equivalent of LPR solution but for reading container code ISO 6346.

Area Detection and People Counter

Area Detection is the Metrici solution to detect and count any object in a video stream. People Counter is one of the first solutions of Metrici, used in retail, shoping center or city management for generate alarms, see heat maps or reports and statistics. Used also for controlling traffic lights or city lights.

The solution is also a security add-on for sensitive areas where people or animal presence is forbidden.

What Metrici did is to replace classical security phisycal sensors and integrate all in one software offer, based on AI and video analytics.

Metrici can monitor dozens of cameras, each one with its detection engine and can be a sensor, allarm trigger, a traffic alert monitoring system, controlls and secures the access or can become a trigger for external hardware or third party software.

The maintanance is minimal, the installation and operation costs are greatly reduced and all applications are to be monitored and integrated in one interface.
