ENLETS Disseminates Best Practices: ANPR IN Finland

2700 kilometres by car, 2000 kilometres by boat, 66 hours of travelling, 40 hours of test driving.

Sharing Best practices is the main objective of the EDBP project. As part of the EDBP the ANPR project leader, John Gelderblom (The Netherlands), travelled to Finland to test the latest in ANPR with his Finnish colleague Jarmo Puustinen.

Although Automatic Number Plate Recognition is well established throughout the EU, there is a large variety of technology used in different member states.

Finland has recently started a project to find the right ANPR in-car camera configuration. As Finland uses the same pc’s and Volvo’s for ANPR as the Netherlands do, the added value of sharing best practices was obvious. The extreme weather conditions put the ANPR to the real test. The Finland trial turned out to be quite successful. It provided both member states with valuable knowledge on ANPR, which they will use in the future. It shows that sharing Best Practices works!
