With Nedap’s ANPR Access licence plate readers together with Nortech’s Norpass access control system, vehicle licence plates can be used as valid ID for allowing authorised vehicles into controlled areas as well as for tracking the vehicles’ movements.
Where it is necessary to control the entry of authorised vehicles into a restricted area using automatic barriers or gates, it is necessary to install a vehicle access control system.
Usually, this would require the authorised vehicles and/or their drivers to carry an electronic ID device such as a UHF or Microwave radio frequency vehicle tag or a proximity card. This would require readers to be installed at the barriers/gates and the controlled distribution of the vehicle tags/cards.
A much simpler and more cost-effective way of identifying authorised vehicles is to use their licence plates as their unique ID’s. This precludes the need to purchase, distribute and manage the tags/cards and prevents fraudulent use of tags by transferring them between vehicles.
