OLDSMAR, Fla. — Sept. 10, 2019 — PlateSmart Technologies, the makers of the original software-only license plate recognition (LPR) solution — PlateSmart ARES® — has introduced Powered by PlateSmart. This unique package allows security solution providers — including video management system (VMS) providers, camera manufacturers, security software firms and the like — to integrate PlateSmart’s award-winning LPR technology into their own product offerings.
“Powered by PlateSmart is a game-changer,” said John Chigos, CEO, PlateSmart Technologies. “Now virtually any kind of business solution that would benefit from offering LPR can do so. Powered by PlateSmart is easy to integrate and cost-effective. We’ve done all the work in developing LPR technology that is second to none. Now solution providers can offer this field-tested, proven technology to their customers.”
Built upon AI and deep machine learning, Powered by PlateSmart will allow solution providers to offer their customers the ability to read license plates, their state jurisdiction, vehicle make and color. Soon the tool will be able to address vehicle orientation (front, rear or side) and type for even more actionable vehicle data.
The Powered by PlateSmart technology has already been deployed in PlateSmart ARES 2.6.0, the latest iteration of PlateSmart’s software-only LPR solution. The technology offers features designed to minimize any burden on the CPU, enhancing performance. This includes the ability to specify particular regions of the video frame for the software to look for the plate while masking others, freeing up precious CPU capacity.
Powered by PlateSmart also improves accuracy in PlateSmart 2.6.0 by addressing some especially hard-to-read plates — those captured at an angle. Technology called Perspective Correction allows users to instruct the software to take plate images captured at up to 45 degrees and essentially straighten them so they can be more easily — and accurately — read.

PlateSmart Technologies developed the original software-only license plate recognition (LPR) solution, PlateSmart ARES®, which is compatible with virtually all video management systems (VMS) and IP cameras. Designed to function as a stand-alone tool or integrate with third-party software and hardware, PlateSmart ARES provides near-real-time actionable vehicle intelligence for complete situational awareness. The software offers true object recognition instead of simple optical character recognition (OCR), which allows it to read the plate as well as the state jurisdiction and vehicle make. PlateSmart has earned multiple industry awards for excellence in security technology.
