FreewayCAM ANPR camera

The primary focus of the FreewayCAM development was to create a versatile ANPR camera for high speed traffic applications.

FreewayCAM ANPR camera

FreewayCAM is a digital IP camera in a compact, single enclosure equipped with IR LED illuminator.

The unique optical module with auto-adjustable shutter time and real-time motion detection based self-triggering ensures appropriate image capturing at virtually any speed, even up to 250 km/h (160 mph).

Key features and main benefits

  • Hardware accelerated, built-in motion detection
  • Auto day & night switch
  • Automatic time synchronization (NTP)
  • Adjustable image compression leads to low network load
  • Still images and compressed live video streams (MJPEG)
  • Powerful IR illumination with low power consumption
  • Suitable for extreme operation environments: IP67 rating
  • Options: megapixel resolution, color imaging and external illuminators

Application areas of FreewayCAM

  • Tolling systems
  • City congestion charging
  • Journey time measurement
  • All kinds of law enforcement applications
  • Highway traffic surveillance
