ALPR Vehicle Access Control: Amazon Logistics Center
The new Amazon logistics center in Martorelles (Barcelona) has implemented a vehicle access control system using automatic license plate recognition (SIRAM). Capture units have been installed at truck entry and exit lanes, allowing for the automation of vehicle access and traffic control.
This system meets Amazon’s needs for controlling the access of cargo vehicles while ensuring the security of the premises and its surroundings. Amazon’s facilities in Martorelles (Barcelona) require versatile capture units that can provide efficient license plate reading on wide roadways and reliable license plate recognition despite the various positions and tilts of the license plates due to different vehicle access points. For this reason, at Innova, we have designed a solution that combines our SIRAM Suite technology with SIRAM Totem capture units.
Solution & Technology
An important factor in this installation is the versatility and reliabilityof the SIRAM OCR license plate recognition system as truck entry and exit accesses are challenging to implement a license plate reading system due to the width of the roadways and the difficulty in aligning the vehicles. Therefore, it was necessary to provide a SIRAM license plate recognition solution that can operate in a lane with a width greater than 5 meters and with vehicles entering from different locations, while still offering accurate license plate reading even when the plates have different tilts and positions. To achieve this, the SIRAM Totem capture unit was chosen, considering its placement in the lanes and being the camera with the highest number of LEDs, ensuring a 100% effective license plate reading.
