Nedap enhances security on ANPR reader with OSDP

Groenlo, The Netherlands

Nedap has upgraded its ANPR Lumo license plate reader for vehicle access control with Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) ensuring a greater site security.

The ANPR Lumo is one of the world’s first all-in-one license plate recognition system compatible with the OSDP protocol V.2.1.7. The OSDP upgrade within Nedap’s ANPR Lumo camera makes it possible to improve vehicle gate access in a trusted and secure manner, which enables security managers to further improve their site security.

Enhanced security

For security professionals, a secure facility is the number one priority within the world of access control. The introduction of the OSDP compliancy offers enhanced security to gate access control solutions in high-security applications. OSDP enables advanced and secure communication between the reader and access control panel that supports this protocol as well. An increasing number of security and access control systems are supporting OSDP technology.

The all-in-one license plate camera ANPR Lumo has a powerful OCR (optical character recognition) and advanced software intelligence built-in. It is engineered for fast and accurate recognition of vehicle license plates with a range of 2 to 10 metres even in high speed traffic flows. Both IR-reflective and non-reflective plates as well as standard and custom license plate formats can be read reliably due to the ANPR Lumo’s smart learning algorithms. ANPR Lumo is now compatible with OSDP V.2.1.7.

The main advantages for using the OSDP enabled license plate recognition in physical access control systems include advanced security. The OSDP supports Secure Channel Protocol (128-bit AES encryption) and therefore enables increased security. This protocol is essential for exchanging data between the license plate reader and third party controller panel.

OSDP supports ease of installation and cost-effective installation of the ANPR Lumo, and additionally less wiring is required and longer cable distances can be realised. Simplified project deployments result in a reduction of the total cost of ownership.

Furthermore, OSDP is an open industry standard which creates more flexibility. It features standardised communication, enabling security professionals the opportunity to create flexible and scalable ANPR system integrations.

The bi-directional communication between the reader and controller used by the OSDP enables ANPR Lumo readers to be configured and managed remotely in real-time.

“The awareness for OSDP as a more secure communication protocol in comparison to traditional protocols is growing. OSDP is being adopted and recommended by more security professionals specifying access control installations. We are delighted with this OSDP upgrade, making ANPR Lumo one of the world’s first license plate recognition system available for vehicle access control applications that require higher security. In addition, we are pleased with offering system integrators a full range of OSDP compatible long-range RFID and ANPR solutions for automatic vehicle identification, enabling them to determine the best product applications to their projects.” said Ido Wentink, Proposition Manager at Nedap Identification Systems.
