Parking and Access Control

Barrier controlled systems can lead to long queues and delays on entrances and exits of car parks, which in turn deters customers from visiting. Parking attendants aren't always able to effectively monitor large scale car parks and sometimes genuine customers cannot find a parking space.

3M provides solutions for the parking industry utilising Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera technology. Using our cameras and processors, number plate images and colour overviews are captured for every vehicle entering or exiting a parking facility to confirm parking duration. This approach eliminates the revenue loss associated with ticket fraud. Because 3M's ANPR cameras are able to read the number plates of every vehicle as they enter and exit car parks, adding a date and a time stamp, it is possible to calculate how long each vehicle has spent visiting the carpark.
