Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)

With the usage ranging from monitoring traffic activities such as red-light adherence and speed enforcement, detection of theft, electronic toll collection to various other traffic enforcement applications, ANPR is technology-driven by how well it ensures the continued safety of all road users.

Mindbox  Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system is based on artificial intelligence, providing a robust and ready-to-integrate system, capturing diverse types of license plates. Our systems are installed at locations across India and are capable of identifying and capturing license plates of more than 5,00,000 vehicles daily, forwarding information to the central control room for further processing. This helps in providing assistance to the enforcement of the law as well as ensuring safety.

How does the ANPR system work?

Capture images of the license plate through a camera
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) extracts the license plate number of the vehicle from captured images
Decoded text is forwarded to the control room for checking the license plate against the vehicle database, to take desired actions

Key features

  • Traffic conditions – free-flow and stop-and-go
  • Single ANPR camera covering single lane
  • Standard and non-standard license plates detection
  • Commercial and non-commercial license plates detection
  • Front and rear  license plates detection
  • Two-line license plates detection
  • Fully customized reporting system, to meet unique business requirements

Advantages of using Mindbox ANPR system

License Plate detection accuracy ~ 95%
Artificial Intelligence
Real-time data transfer
Easy to integrate

Our algo handles plates that are blurry, dark, angled, with stacked characters, etc. See our work for ALPR in India.


We handle both. Snapshot decodes plates from images. Stream identifies and decodes plates from live cameras.


Get vehicle region, make, model, color, classification; Webhooks, Dashboard, and more! Blur plates too!


We provide both cloud and on-premise software (no Internet required) on a variety of hardware.


Snapshot’s inference speed is 50-100 ms and Stream processes 4 cameras at once on a mid-range CPU.


Our ALPR engine supports over 90 countries and is tuned to your specific region.
