The automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system records every vehicle that parks on your land: when they arrive; how long they stay for; when they leave and how frequently they visit. But what happens to this information? Where is it stored and what is done with it once you have it? Unfortunately, most ANPR systems do not make any effort to utilise this valuable information, which could in fact be of the utmost use in the organisation’s endeavour to make better and more well-informed business decisions.
ANPR reporting uses ANPR cameras to collate real-time statistics on the usage of your land and the activity of your customers. The ANPR parking solutions offered by HX Car Park Management include market-leading software with highly advanced reporting capabilities, ensuring that you are receiving the utmost business value from your ANPR system.

How do we comply with GDPR to keep ANPR data?
The ANPR camera uses a proprietary real-time operating system dedicated to the DSP processor and uses an SD card which holds the operating system and associated file system. All licensing and configuration for the ANPR camera are also contained on this card and can only be used with the physical hardware that they are attached. Access to the SD card is locked at driver level and is only unlocked within the camera’s boot via unique password. The SD card is thereby unreadable on external devices.
The process by which the ANPR camera transmits data is as follows:
Analyse and decode VRM > Immediately store VRM and associated still images and metadata > Establish IP connection with Endpoint (using external VPN services if installed) > Send unique camera identification and VRM packet > Endpoint accepts after validating data > VRM processed securely at the Endpoint > camera marks data as sent > Expire data in accordance with configured rules.

- The ANPR cameras sole function is to read VRM’s using embedded image analysis to extract alphanumeric sequences associated with vehicle license plates. It does not have the ability, nor will it have in the future, the capability of transmitting or associating Keeper/ Personal Details that may be inferred by the VRM, apart from the VRM itself. All such activities are a function of the Endpoint (e.g. Parking Back Office Suite/Applications).
- The camera does not hold any stored video stream that is available for later download or analysis. All image processing is real time and results only in VRM data and associated still images from Overview and Plate patch for purposes of vehicle validation in the Endpoint.
- The camera has the facility to ‘hash’ the VRM to further reduce the risk of unauthorised interception of the VRM at any stage of the transfer process.
- The camera offers username/password authentication for access to Endpoints.
- The use of VPNs for all WAN access is inherently available in the IP data transport schemes employed.
- Heartbeat and health messages between the Endpoint and cameras provide time synchronisation and availability information that can be used to validate the point-to-point transfer of VRM data.
