Multipix Imaging creates vision system using Euresys framegrabbers to monitor car parks

Multipix Imaging has assisted a company specialising in car-park management to create a system that enables the monitoring of free, limited-time and paid-parking car parks. The vision system includes high-resolution industrial cameras, PCIe framegrabbers and image processing software.
The system, which uses Euresys Alert PCIe framegrabber cards, reads the vehicle registration number plate in a process known as automatic number plate recognition.
At the point of entering and exiting a car park the vehicle number plate is recorded. This allows for a management vehicle to drive to the car park at a later time, again recording the number plates of the parked cars.
This data is then used to determine those vehicles parking illegally and a fine can then be generated.
Benefits of application
- The framegrabber cards are capable of acquiring images from up to 16 independent cameras with a total digitising power of 200fps
- The system eliminates the need to manually patrol the car park, making it a safer environment
- It gives continuous operational feedback 24/7, sending data back to a secure station
Multipix Imaging will present data matrix readers, vision sensors, smart cameras and embedded machine vision systems from Datalogic Industrial Automation at the Total Processing and Packaging Exhibition.
Multipix Imaging has announced that two monochrome two-megapixel and four-megapixel Basler Ace CMOSIS GigE cameras are now available as near-infrared (NIR)-optimised variants. They are particularly suited to surveillance tasks, intelligent traffic systems or biometrics applications.
Multipix Imaging has introduced the compact Ensenso N10 stereo 3D camera featuring a USB interface. The camera is suitable for industrial applications such as medical engineering, robotics and gripping technology, logistics, completeness checking, rapid volume measurement and safety engineering.
If a camera is calibrated for colour, the colours on an sRGB monitor largely correspond to the colours as they appear in reality. With a calibrated camera, users can measure colour to standardised values, which is particularly important in the printing industry. It means that the colours in the image can be compared to standardised target values, and this is essential for achieving a colour image true to the original.
Multipix Imaging has launched the Datalogic Matrix 450, a high-end industrial 2D reader for logistics applications.
