Color LPR
Superior Images
Greater Accuracy

Capture superior images with greater accuracy.

The versatile Perceptics Color License Plate Reader captures color images of the license plate on personal and commercial vehicles, day and night, using visible illumination. With an industry-leading yield rate, Perceptics LPRs produce fewer exclusions, more plate reads and a higher level of accuracy, resulting in more images being processed automatically. The system's flexible design ensures a seamless integration with current infrastructure. 

When paired with other Perceptics imaging systems, officials have multiple vehicle datapoints with which to make information decisions.
