Making use of state-of-the-art machine learning, PlateSmart’s AI-driven ARES technology extracts more vehicle data from video images than any competing security solution, including license plate number via Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR), state jurisdiction or country of origin, and vehicle make.

In addition, ARES can detect suspicious vehicle movement patterns such as circling or loitering.

All of this data is accessible to users within the Verint Situational Awareness Platform. Joint customers can access alerts generated from ARES for viewing and searching, along with vehicle snapshot images.

Once plate and alert information is sent to the Verint solution, users can review the corresponding video recordings, and can convert alarms, such as watch list vehicle alerts, into automatic incidents.

Operators can then follow the appropriate incident response procedure, along with the associated video.
