Embedded cameras for VCA and ANPR solutions
The AVUTEC ANPR AI camera product line logo
Equipped for both ANPR and deep learning tasks the Gatekeeper 1250X and Gatekeeper 410X are real allrounders. The IR sensitive camera, IR LEDs and daylight filter ensure high accuracy LPR in all weather and lighting conditions. The onboard colour sensor and the neural processing unit pave the way for complementary deep learning tasks. Both Gatekeeper models classify trucks, people or cars while capturing license plates, all fully on-board.


ANPR based subscription washing

The capacity to multitask, 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. Their specifications place these Gatekeepers at the forefront of todays AI camera’s.

The Gatekeeper 410X and 1250X prove their worth in access control solutions, as a security sensor in smart mobility and surveying a city environment or business park. With the increasing number of intelligent devices and end-users getting used to technical assistance, besides law enforcement and security enhancement, Gatekeepers are used more and more as an intelligent tool of convenience. In hospatility industry, guests are welcomed with our technology. The car wash industry implemented subscription based washing.

The surplus of complementory detection algorithms

The distinction between trucks, motors, cars, bicycles and pedestrians on top of ANPR enables refined access control. A truck can be granted access to the perimeter of a logistic center,while an arriving car will not be allowed. Meanwhile the staff recieves a message to announce the arrival of the truck and the details of the load. A matrix board leads the truck driver to a specified docking station.
The ability to detect people and vehicles while reading license plates provides a complete overview of traffic flow in a city landscape or business park. All done with one camera!

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. Time-restricted parking or e-charging can be implemented and alarms can be generated to assist security officers in an alarm center.  Smart algorithms provide the insights needed to build a smarter and safer world.


Flexible positioning

Being a varifocal camera with wide recognition angles, both the Gatekeeper 410X and 1250X provide flexible positioning during installation. With a single cable and a Power of Ethernet (PoE+) switch, the Gatekeepers are 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 X 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.
