frequently asked questions
Yes, Carmen® offers country-independent recognition of not only Latin characters, but also Arabic, Cyrillic, Chinese, Korean, Thai and many more, as well as reflective, non-reflective, personalized and special interest plates that are typical in many U.S. states.
CARMEN® GO provides results really quickly altough processing speed depends on factors such as image resolution, engine type, PC performance, image quality, etc. As an example, with an image taken by an ARH FreewayCAM camera processed on a desktop PC, the average processing time is around only 100-150ms.
Carmen® is a world leader in recognition rate, but the rate may depend on many factors, such as image quality, general condition of the license plates, engine type etc.
For example, in Hungary, our ANPR engine with our cameras used on most of the highways, reached a remarkably high, unique percentage of recognition rate which is higher than 98,5 %.
This can vary by license types depending on 1) how many CPU cores your application uses (single, dual or quad core) and also 2) how many video streams you would like to process parallel (1, 2, 4 or 8 streams).
Carmen® GO is sold with a perpetual license, which means it never expires. It also comes with a limited lifetime software update*, which entitles the purchaser to download software updates throughout the product’s lifetime.
*LPR engine libraries are excluded, as they are available on a yearly-subscription basis. Please review our End User License Agreement for more information on the update policy.
“Carmen GO is easy to use and offers a cost-efficient alternative to conventional LPR solutions. If you don’t do programming, the setup takes only 2 minutes and it immediately produces LPR results – but it can be used as an integrated module, too: using its API we managed seamless integration with 3rd party systems such as drive-off prevention solutions. These systems have the highest recognition rates we have seen so far, opening countless business opportunities across various industries.”Image Analytics Pacific
