New app brings ALPR to any smart phone

Columbia, Md

The app enables a cell phone camera to be used as a handheld ALPR tool.

The newly released Rekor Go is a mobile application that offers the power of Automatic License Plate Recognition (APLR) to commercial users in a broad array of markets later this autumn.

The app offers to improve the accuracy and efficiency of many business operations by enabling a cell phone camera to be used as a handheld ALPR tool, capturing images and recognising license plates and vehicles. The app processes both still photos and streaming video and permits both stationary users and users in motion to capture and identify plates. The app will be added to Rekor’s ecommerce platform which currently has a suite of four products with customers in 56 countries.

Rekor Go analyses still images and video in real-time, comparing identified plates to those on user-uploaded lists and issuing an alert when a plate of interest is detected. The application comes with an optional companion site that allows users to bulk upload “whitelists” and “blacklists” for permitted or not-permitted license plates into the system, as well as download reports.

“Rekor Go is the most advanced application of its kind, bringing our industry leading vehicle recognition capabilities into the hands of many businesses and organisations that can use it strategically to further their opportunities,” said Robert Berman, president and CEO, Rekor. “Rekor Go can help schools make student pick-up lines frictionless and more secure, facilitate parking supervision for homeowners’ associations and help streamline event parking management. Making this technology accessible and affordable for such a wide array of businesses and organizations sets Rekor apart.”

Other anticipated use cases include, but are not limited to: alerting campus safety officers to prohibited vehicles entering campus, identifying recently fired employees or non-custodial parents; notifying event staff of a VIP arrival; validating vehicles that are parked in restricted access lots and many, many more.

Available to both IOS and Android users, Rekor Go is expected to be available for purchase and download in late October at an affordable monthly subscription which will include access to the companion site, and cloud data and image storage for 30 days.
