How Jenoptik ANPR technology helps limit the spread of Covid-19
The ongoing spread of Covid-19 poses serious challenges to authorities around the world. Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology has proved to be an effective tool to support authorities in their duties to control borders and prevent the entry of infected persons.
In Western Australia, a state of emergency was declared in March and extended in August 2020 under the Emergency Management Act as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Strict border controls were put into place to limit the spread of Covid-19 in Western Australia and keep communities safe.
In order to support border control authorities, Jenoptik Vector cameras were installed at several Covid-19 road checkpoints along the Western Australian border. These cameras read the number plates of all vehicles passing the checkpoint, sending the data back to the TraffiData back-office software and cross referencing these against a daily updated list of known Covid-19 patients. If a hit is received, the system then distributes an immediate alert to the officers at the checkpoint. The officer can then react instantly and deal with the person who triggered the alert.
This customised ANPR solution by Jenoptik has provided the Western Australian police with a fully automated and real-time link to the database of current infections and has thereby enabled them to effectively reduce the spread of Covid-19.
