X-Series Gatekeeper TraffiXANPR camera
The AVUTEC ANPR AI camera product line logo

Recognising license plates of free flow traffic is what the Gatekeeper TraffiX does best. With its IR sensitive monochrome camera, IR LEDs, motorized zoom lens (6-20 meters) and daylight filter it captures license plates at a stunning 70fps. The colour camera is used for overview, recording and deep learning tasks like detection and classification. Its powerful hardware allow for ANPR and a deep learning task running in the same time resulting in a multi tasking state of the art device. The Gatekeeper TraffiX is the best choice for recognition of license plates for traffic with speeds above 50km/h.

The capacity to multitask and perform several recognition networks in parallel, compresses the necessity of multiple camera systems down to just a single Gatekeeper. The camera combines precision and accuracy in a cost efficient and deployment friendly solution for many projects. Recognition runs continuously without the need of external triggers. It’s specifications places this Gatekeeper at the forefront of todays AI camera’s.

Mounted above the highway the Gatekeeper TraffiX provides real time information about traffic flow. Accurate recognition results and contextual data trigger relevant alerts and alarms, assisting centralists and security officers in their daily jobs. To policymakers it offers a source of valuable data to gain insights about traffic flow.

Augmented with contextual data

The augmentation of ANPR reads with car metadata, directional information and timestamps provide contextual data to trigger more specified actions or alarms. Contextual data is the base for traffic analysis and statistics. Data based anomoly detection algorithms and predefined conditions trigger alarms and assist security offers in the field.

The surplus of complementory detection algorithms

The distinction between trucks, motors and cars on top of ANPR provide refined tools for analytics and statistics. Traffic flow can be monitored and counted. Trafic movements can be tracked over time to adjust traffic flow and management.


Flexible positioning

Having a varifocal lense, the Gatekeeper TraffiX provides flexible positioning during installation. With only one cable and a Power of Ethernet (PoE+) switch, the Gatekeeper is up and running in no time.

Remote management

Each Gatekeeper comes with a set of remote management tools to configure, monitor and manage each device from behind a desk. Remote access facilitates high quality support with fast response time, while maintenance costs are minimized.

The latest technology

The Gatekeeper TraffiX is designed with growth in mind. The flexibility of CortexFramework and the use of the latest neural networking technology ensure a future proof system ready for new modules and capabilities over time.
