ROK Homeland Security (RHS), the mobile phone-based policing and security technology development company, has announced the launch of ROK LPR (licence plate recognition), it’s hand-held ANPR (automatic numberplate recognition) system.

The ROK LPR system is highly innovative, fast, reliable and accurate ANPR technology designed for use on Android mobile devices.

The ROK LPR application is available either as a stand-alone system or as an integrated part of the RHS law enforcement mobile application system and can be used in a hand-held overt manner or mounted in a vehicle, as well as from a fixed position with tripod and telephoto lens.

Paolo Fidanza, CEO of RHS, said: “We all recognise the incredible effectiveness and value of ANPR in all manner of policing and security activities, yet we also know the high cost of setting-up and running both fixed and vehicle-mounted ANPR systems. We have developed ROK LPR, with a target acquisition time of just one second to be a highly cost-effective enhancement to existing ANPR systems.”

RHS provides real-time, secure technologies to assist law enforcement officers in the gathering and management of information in a variety of formats, including encrypted data-based communications and improved spatial awareness capabilities. The technology has been specifically designed for use in counter-terrorism operations, criminal investigations, counter-narcotic operations, physical security, evidence gathering and field communications. 

“Interest in ROK LPR has already been considerable as it effectively places ANPR in the hand of every police officer whose mobile phone is equipped with the service which, particularly when operated in conjunction with our RHS service, becomes an incredibly powerful policing asset.” added Mr Fidanza.
