Fixed license plate and vehicle recognition (ALPR)

Engineered for public safety missions and traffic speeds up to 120 mph, the Rekor Edge Max system for ALPR is deployed on the roadside of bidirectional primary roads and highways. It captures and processes license plate and vehicle data on-device within a durable enclosure and automatically sends recognition data to the Rekor Scout® software platform.

How does the system work with live video of traffic?

Each Rekor Edge Max system contains an embedded Edge Processing Unit (EPU) that processes multiple streams of high-resolution video at once. Installed directly on the roadside, it delivers low-power computing in a compact unit, allowing us to accurately analyze license plates and vehicles from full-frame video without performing expensive processing in the cloud.

What happens after the video is processed?

After processing the raw video using our EPU, small bits of metadata containing actionable information are sent to the cloud via a low-bandwidth cellular connection. The data can then be easily accessed in Rekor Scout’s web-based dashboards.
