The Guide “10 Tips For Best Free Flow ANPR Deployment” aims to provide a useful list of characteristics and features of ANPR cameras to be used in free-flow, auto-triggered and high-speed traffic control applications.

Integration Check-ins

When designing any type of system, also an ANPR-based one, it should be analysed the integration and implementation times and costs.

ANPR cameras are usually an element of an overall traffic control system. As such, it should be integrated with other equipments and high-level processes. Thus, in addition to assess the performance of ANPR vendors, it is important to analyze the camera connectivity and interaction with other equipment.

Things like the communication protocol (TCP/IP or proprietary), the existence of an interface (API, SDK) to interact with the camera, or even the possibility to run specific and custom software inside the camera, are also relevant.


In order to minimize the installation and integration costs and speed up the time-to-market, Atalaya has been conceived as a stand-alone and ready to install ANPR camera. This is an all-in-one and autonomous ANPR camera.

No additional roadside equipment (PC station, sensors, etc. ) is required. Atalaya ANPR camera integrates a standard ATOM CPU running a Windows XPe O.S. Hence, system integrators can run their software on it, with no additional equipment costs.

Additionally, Imagsa provides the tools (SDK) to interact with the camera. There is no vendor lock-in, and the system integrator can freely develop its own traffic control applications with Atalaya ANPR camera.
