Validate More Vehicles in Less Time with Front Mount LPR Access Plates

Verifying the credentials of every parked vehicle in an open lot was once an all-day process. With front mount LPR access plates, it is now possible to use a license plate recognition system to scan, validate, and control access for every vehicle in the designated parking area.

License plate recognition (LPR) is a practical parking access innovation because it reads the license plate on the vehicle automatically. Drivers don’t have to keep track of hang tags, and they never have to worry about forgetting their parking passes.

What Is a Front Mount LPR Access Plate?

LPR is a way to scan plates and validate parking rights. Specialized cameras read the front mount LPR access plate installed on each vehicle. A backend computer then pulls up data tied to that vehicle. This state-of-the-art technology is a secure and efficient solution to parking lot management.

There is no longer a requirement to print and mail parking decals for all authorized vehicles. Furthermore, security cars with license plate readers can cover more surface area in the designated area. Effective scanning upon entry could shift the focus of the parking officer to provide excellent service to your visitors.

This technology has its roots in law enforcement. Prior to its introduction, police manually called in license plate numbers to a dispatcher. LPR streamlines this process. Today, police can scan a plate and run it through their in-car computer. It gives the officer vital information, including owner data, outstanding warrants, and vehicle stats.

License plate identification is the ideal parking access solution for:

  • States where a front plate isn’t required
  • Student vehicles
  • Staff and employee vehicles
  • Fleet vehicles
  • Maintenance & utility vehicles
  • Open lots requiring front plates for validation

When talking about LPR, some people may refer to ANPR or Automatic Number Plate Recognition. What’s the difference between the two? Essentially, they are the same thing because they both refer to the hardware and software used for different types of license plate recognition. However, ANPR relies on both the license plate number and the vehicle’s VRM to identify and approve access. LPR runs just the plate number through a stored database.

A Dedicated R&D Department

We put a lot of emphasis on developing products that work as promised. That’s why WW&L has a full, in-house R&D department. Every LPR access plate we create must have an exceptionally high read rate when mounted properly on the front of the vehicle. Each iteration went through a series of stringent tests before we settled on the right design.

Besides relying on our own R&D team, we also consulted with other LPR industry leaders that tested and validated our end product. As one leading LPR software/camera provider said, “If we could have this readability on all our plates, the challenge of reading license plates in North America would be much easier.”

Security Features and Enhancements

Security is a top concern in the parking industry. Parking decal copies and fake passes are increasingly becoming more popular on the black market. That’s why WW&L developed the best process for manufacturing front mount LPR license plates.

LPR access plate standard design features include:

  • Standard 12″ x 6″ plate size
  • Durable metal plate
  • Printed on reflective sheeting
  • Weather-resistant
  • Customizable
  • Non-transferable
  • Guaranteed to last for 12 months

The reflective sheeting is designed to hinder counterfeiting efforts because it doesn’t reproduce well on a color copier, and it’s designed to be more difficult to duplicate the reflectiveness. Each plate also requires the right substrate and font structures for cameras to read it. Our print processes ensure each plate has the precise font structure and size for maximum readability to work effectively with the LPR camera.
