Rekor’s Watchman Enables Automatic License Plate and Vehicle Recognition for Twenty-Six Traffic and Surveillance Cameras
Rekor Systems, Inc (REKR) (the Company), a Nasdaq company focused on bringing smarter, faster, cost-competitive solutions to the worlds of public safety and customer experience, announced today that the Company has been selected by a municipal law enforcement agency in the state of Alabama to deploy Rekor Watchman software. Rekor’s software eliminates the need for two separate cameras – one for license plate reading functionality, one for general surveillance recording – as this solution can be used to collect license plate data and information such as the make, model, and color of a vehicle using the same camera that provides surveillance monitoring. The results are displayed on a web-based interface that can be accessed from anywhere.
A software-based “plug-and-play” vehicle recognition system that can work with virtually any traffic or surveillance camera, and powered by industry-leading 99.02% accurate Rekor software, Watchman captures critical vehicle information from a video stream at high rates of speed, and at extreme angles of view with unmatched levels of accuracy. Law enforcement authorities receive invaluable data to aid official investigations, with live alerts using hotlists of known offenders, and increases public safety.
“We are disrupting an entire industry with both our pricing and technology,” said Rod Hillman, Chief Operating Officer, Rekor Systems. “In a relatively short amount of time, we are noticing the adoption of our technology spreading in states such as Alabama, where we are providing more cost-effective vehicle recognition solutions that outperform legacy systems. Simply put, we are empowering law enforcement agencies to work smarter and safer.”
