PIPS Technology Ltd has launched SpikeStore, a local Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) storage system that can store up to 12 million images from the Spike+ cameras – equal to every vehicle on a busy road for up to one year.

Spike+ is a fully integrated digital number plate reading camera incorporating both the camera and the recogniser within a single sealed enclosure.

Designed for low-cost intelligence gathering over prolonged periods of time, SpikeStore provides local long-term storage of evidential records at the roadside where the Spike+ camera is installed. Time-stamped vehicle registration numbers are sent immediately to the PIPS in-station in real-time, whilst the associated images are pulled only when needed – either upon a hit detection, or a manual database search.

SpikeStore reduces communication charges, as images are transferred on a pay-as-you-need basis using wireless GPRS, 3G or UTMS. It is also suitable for rapid deployment special operations, as GPRS communications provide retrieval of plate patch images in a few seconds, and full images within a minute.

SpikeStore is of a robust thermal design, for year-round operation. It is fully sealed to IP68 rating, and designed for silo deployment or direct burying. Another advantage of SpikeStore is its virtual total resilience to communications outages. It provides the same full financial level of security as Spike+, along with tamper detection ensures the highest levels of data security.
