Intelligent Traffic Monitoring System for Bulgarian Roads

Reliable traffic monitoring systems for vehicle identification are in demand all over the world. The Bulgarian company atto-Systems, a provider of industrial image processing systems, developed a high-value-for-money comprehensive license plate recognition (LPR) solution for the Bulgarian market. The automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) software engine CARRIDA plays a key role in this clever combination of OEM components and customer-specific software.

In October 2015, several hundreds of these intelligent transportation systems were tested at 200 different locations across Bulgaria’s road network.

The systems allows

• a continuous traffic count
• vehicle classification into 10 categories (e.g. passenger car, motorbike, truck)
• speed detection
• number plate recognition for vehicle speeds up to 200 km/h in up to two traffic lanes
• recognition accuracy of more than 95 % for Bulgarian number plates.

The ITS systems were installed on purpose-made gantries and triggered by a ground contact in the road. At the heart of this system is the CARRIDA ANPR software.

Reliable number plate recognition with CARRIDA Software Engine

atto-Systems has complemented the CARRIDA software solution by adding a number of features to create a customer-specific all-in-one solution:

    • Pre-selection of image areas that likely contain a license plate. Only the cropped image portions are sent to CARRIDA, resulting in a more than 100 % faster image evaluation
    • Processing routine to handle peaks in demand
    • Blacklist/whitelist option
    • Streamlined user interface for easier setup of traffic lanes and parameterisation
    • Maximum functionality in all light and weather conditions. For this purpose, atto-Systems developed a special lighting solution and has integrated a heater, ventilation as well as temperature and moisture sensors into the weather-proof outdoor housing
