ELSAG Make, Type and Color (ELSAG MTC) software is an automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) application that sees and records the make, body type and colour of every vehicle whose number plate it reads. ELSAG MTC is an add-on to the ELSAG Enterprise Operations Center (ELSAG EOC) data management system software and is designed to narrow search results of ELSAG EOC ANPR data queries.
As ELSAG ANPR images and data stream into the ELSAG EOC for standard ANPR reads, sophisticated computer vision algorithms automatically identify the vehicle make, body type and color for each number plate read and adds that information to the ELSAG EOC. Additionally, descriptors like a spare tyre raised spoiler or bumper stickers can be included in this new data set.
ELSAG MTC recognizes any combination of seven colours, seven body types, 34 makes and nine visual descriptors. When you query your ANPR data and specific make, body type, colour or visual descriptors, your results will list fewer vehicles for you to investigate
