Motoscan for Scooter-Mounted On-Street Parking Enforcement

Genetec AutoVu™ Motoscan
Mounted on a scooter or small motorbike, Motoscan provides a light-weight, energy-efficient alternative to traditional ALPR systems. This parking enforcement appliance runs on less than 40 watts of power, allowing your officers to scan vehicles as long as there is gas in their tank.

Genetec, a leading provider of open architecture security and public safety solutions will unveil Genetec AutoVu Motoscan, a new scooter-mounted on-street parking enforcement solution at this year’s Parkopolis.

Designed to help increase parking enforcement efficiency in the traditionally narrow streets of European cities, Motoscan is a lightweight, low-power, yet fully-featured license plate recognition unit that is designed to be easily mounted on a smaller vehicle such as a scooter or small motorbike.

Equipped with specialized ANPR cameras mounted on the scooter, the AutoVu Motoscan system automatically scans license plates and sends back the information to the parking authorities’ back-end system which will identify parking violations and issue tickets, as required.

“Managing parking in a city is not an easy task, but it’s particularly challenging for many European cities with narrow, busy streets,” said Chris Yigit, Product Line Manager, Genetec Inc.

“We have designed Motoscan to bring all the features of our state of the art AutoVu ANPR (Automated Number Plate Recognition) system, in a small, compact unit that can be easily mounted on a scooter or small motorbike, without compromising the balance and stability of the vehicle.” 

The Motoscan unit is compact, measuring just 50Wx39Dx30H cm (19.7×15.2×12 in). It combines all critical components onto a single device to keep the weight low.

“At less than 15 kg, the Motoscan consumes less power than a 40-watt light bulb, allowing it to be powered on appropriate scooters without additional batteries, and function for as long as there is a fuel in the tank,” added Yigit.

The main unit is designed to meet the demanding automotive environment, making it able to withstand a broad range of harsh vibrations, weather and road conditions, including cobblestones, bumpy streets and smooth pavement.

In spite of its small form factor, Motoscan packs plenty of state-of the-art mobile ANPR features: this single, powerful ANPR solution automatically captures and reads thousands of license plates per shift.

Genetec-AutoVu™-Motoscan
Genetec™ Motoscan packs a complete ALPR system in a compact case. Motoscan is energy efficient and light-weight, so it is easy to mount on a scooter without compromising balance or stability. This means your officers can patrol continuously without concern while on-foot officers deliver citations based on the ALPR data.

Thanks to the AutoVu SharpX ANPR high-resolution cameras included with the unit, Motoscan will offer consistent performance day and night and in all weather conditions.

It can accurately decipher plate numbers on vehicles parked in parallel, at 45° or 90°, and can even read dirty or obstructed plates.

The unit is also equipped with ruggedized built-in wireless technology to ensure real time communication with third-party parking management companies.

In order to avoid distracting the driver, Motoscan features an active manual controller instead of a screen.

Located on the steering bar, the controller features toggle switches and LED lights to inform the driver of the functioning state of system.

The AutoVu ALPR system offers features that heighten accuracy and increase operator efficiency. In addition, ALPR reads are augmented with context images, time stamps, and GPS coordinates and can include wheel images for strict time-limited parking enforcement. By providing this contextual data, the AutoVu system helps resolve investigations faster and reduces ticketing disputes.

The data collected by the ANPR camera is automatically sent to a central location, and there is no need for the driver to interact with the controls, making it simpler and safer to operate.

Backed by 20 years of technological innovation, Genetec AutoVu provides an accurate, reliable and easy-to-use ANPR solution for municipal parking enforcement.
