Traffic

Dahua’s License Plate Recognition cameras automatically capture vehicle license plate images, and recognize license plate numbers and letters

During playback, an operator can perform a license plate search by time and date to view thumbnail images of all plates captured during the specified time period, or they can enter a license plate number to search for vehicles recorded with that plate.

Installation

This section covers recommendations for physical installation of the device - including pole distance, height, and camera angle.

The camera can be installed in the center or side of lanes, with different recommended distances for mounting.

Mounting height and the best distance to capture:

Installation Method Camera Height Lane Width Snapshot Distance (min, max) Best distance to capture
ITC237-PW6M 3m 3.5m 7-14m 9-12m
4m 3.5m-7m 8-16m 14-16m
5m 3.5m-7m 9-18m 14-18m
6m 3.5-7m 10-30m 25m

Center

If the camera is installed in the center of the lane, the relationship between the installation height h and the capture distance x is X≥1.7*H.

For example, in the case of 6m height in the standard scheme, the minimum capture distance is 10.2m.
