Wazo’s vehicle detection is extremely accurate and specific. Beyond merely identifying vehicles, it distinguishes classes of vehicles, differentiating between cars, trucks, motorcycles, vans, and bikes. An obvious application of this ability is that users can count the number and types of vehicles that pass a user defined line. This is valuable to traffic engineers, city planners, and commercial developers considering rental prices. The current solution to traffic counting is an inefficient pneumatic system that requires labor to set up at every site. One Wazo Enterprise Hub, in contrast, can collect traffic data at over 100 locations simultaneously.
BASS also has license plate recognition (LPR). LPR creates a profile for a vehicle in the same way facial ID creates a profile for a person. These profiles include the time and place the vehicle was seen, an estimated speed, the vehicle’s direction, and a make, model and color of the vehicle. The ability to detect a vehicle’s make, model, and color is another valuable feature, but is less comprehensive and accurate than generic vehicle identification. This enables easy identification when a license plate isn’t known. Make/model/color identification allows users to search archival video based on a witness description of a car. In our system you are able to sort vehicles by those three factors to easily identify the vehicle you’re searching for.
Our system can monitor parking lots and enforce individual business’ lot’s rules. Users draw a zone for each parking space that has some restriction on it, and using state management, cna automate parking lot rule enforcement. For time-restricted parking, the system can use the same logic as it does for loitering detection. Users draw a zone and prompt the system to send an alert if a single vehicle occupies the zone for more than an allotted amount of time. Parking only available certain hours of the day, users can prompt the system to send an alert if a vehicle enters the zone during the restricted hours. For reserved parking, users can allow a specific car or set of cars to park in a zone using LPR, but prompt the system to send an alert if any other vehicles enter the reserved zone.
