Please download recognition software demo programs, sample applications which demonstrate the powerful capabilities.

We invite you to download one or more of our recognition software demo programs. These sample applications demonstrate the powerful capabilities of our recognition systems. Each demo contains several typical images and the recognition software. The software is a static-link version, and performs true recognition at real time. For download and execution instructions, see description below.

SeeLane Application                                        LPR Product Line   

System Requirements:

PC with a minimum of 64MB RAM running Windows 98/NT/2000. Win 95 is not supported on new Demo releases and might result in run-time errors.


Download Instructions:

The application files are ZIPped. You should first download the ZIP file, saving the file to a directory. Then, extract the file (using Winzip) into a subdirectory. Note: If you do not have Winzip, please download the unzip tool.

Demo Activation:

Be sure that you activate the application only after extracting the files to a subdirectory.

To execute the demo, activate the extracted .exe file. The demo loads and displays each of the images, performs actual number plate recognition, and displays the result on the player display. The identified code is displayed at the bottom window. The history of these identifications, the file processed by the player, and the actual time required to identify the image are shown in the right window. You can change the speed of the operation.

An animation of a sample demo is shown below. The recognition demo "player" is shown running a set of images, opening each image to obtain the image data, extracting the recognition string and displaying its result and the recognition information.

 

 

The following sections contain available recognition demo players. They are grouped by the product lines: LPR (SeeCar) and CCR (SeeContainer).  (SA Personalized Plate Demo)

License plates standards are country-specific. We have prepared different demos for many world-wide adaptations. Recognition demos from other Countries are available or can be prepared.

For download & operation instructions, see above Instructions.

A simulation of the SeeLane application is also available. You can download this simulation and learn how to set, operate and interface with the application. Note that the simulation does not perform actual recognition as the above demo players.

Container Markings are based on an International standard, so there are no Country specific demos (as in the SeeCar players above), rather a Worldwide Container recognition player. However, there are additional recognition players in the following table - a Chassis recognition (for USA containers) and Crane Container recognition.

For download & operation instructions on the recognition demo players, see above Instructions.

Note that the simulation does not perform actual recognition as the above demo players.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Congestion tolls would keep us moving

By CHI-DOOH LI
SPECIAL TO THE P-I

The reverberations from the shocking collapse of the Minneapolis I-35W bridge have reached the Puget Sound region. Much of our transportation infrastructure is of the same vintage as the I-35W bridge, or older. The August tragedy is a jarring reminder that long-overdue repair or replacement is an open invitation to disaster.

In Minnesota, within two weeks of the catastrophe, state and local officials worked with stunning speed and bipartisan collaboration to secure a $133 million grant from the federal government to address the sudden loss of a major arterial highway. "Minneapolis needs solutions that work now, not years and years from now," U.S. Transportation Secretary Mary Peters declared in announcing the grant.

Whoever heard of transportation solutions that relieve traffic congestion immediately? Here in Seattle and the Puget Sound region, we are far more accustomed to snail-paced planning and action. We have learned to accept that new highways and widened bridges will inevitably fall short of their intended results because congestion problems in the meantime have grown exponentially.

The "instant" solution devised for Minneapolis and soon to become familiar to the Puget Sound region is captured in two words that should be etched into our rain-soaked Pacific Northwest brains: congestion tolling.

If you have lived here long enough, you will remember the Evergreen Point Bridge tolls. Or if you now commute across the new Tacoma Narrows span, you are also acquainted with tolls.

The twist in "congestion" tolls, also known as congestion pricing or variable tolls, is this: Charges for using highways and bridges will vary according to the time of use and routes chosen. High demand times (i.e., rush hour) and high volume routes (think I-405, SR 520, I-5 from Lynnwood to Southcenter) will cost more.

If the word "toll" conjures in your mind nightmarish images of booths stretched across a highway bulge or at one end of a bridge, with long lines of cars slowing or stopping to pay the toll, you are hopelessly outdated.

Today's toll technology includes electronic tags, transponders, cameras with license plate recognition capability, and a dazzling array of devices that allow drivers to pay tolls without stopping or even slowing down.

Congestion tolling has won over skeptics everywhere it is employed. The experience of other U.S. cities and major urban centers across the world shows that congestion pricing reduces traffic loads in peak times, and increases public transit ridership during those times.

Congestion tolling is coming our way, packaged in the form of a $139 million "gift" from the federal government intended to reduce congestion and provide seed money for a new Evergreen Point Bridge. The strings attached to this grant require imposition of variable tolls for use of the existing bridge.

A study commissioned by King County Executive Ron Sims earlier this year proposes congestion pricing on all the heavily traveled interstate and state highways in King County. The practical effect of this plan, if implemented, will be to change fundamentally the way we think about using our cars to commute, shop, visit family or friends, or catch a Mariners game at Safeco Field.

This is the question proponents of congestion tolling want us all to answer before we hop into our cars: Do I really have to drive my car now, on this route, or do I delay my trip to a different hour, go by a different route, or use public transportation?

Credit Sims with an extra measure of guts for taking the lead in advocating congestion pricing. He expects impassioned resistance, but he is convinced that people in this area are beginning to understand that paying tolls may be a far better way of paying for transportation solutions, than continually raising gasoline taxes to build more highways.

Congestion tolling will require action by the Legislature. So far, legislators seem content to watch and wait, and gauge what kind of fire Sims draws as he floats his proposal. Sims, on his part, is fearless. He points to the recent I-5 closures and the surprising lack of congestion as an indication that drivers here, when they must, are already exercising intelligent judgment in using their cars.

That is the whole point of congestion pricing -- to require us all to use intelligent judgment when we need to get from point A to point B. I am hopeful it will not take a major disaster like the I-35W bridge collapse to get us to do so.
