License plate recognition technology can be used in a variety of ways. Here are 5 ways license plate recognition technology is being used right now.

1. Curbside Pickup

Curbside pickup (also known as ‘click and collect’) can pick up their groceries smoothly and safely.

2. Drive-Thru

Fast Food and pharmacy drive thru services can be accelerated with this tech: customers can pre-order items with their smartphones, then when approaching the drive-thru window, staff can be automatically alerted to which customer is approaching.

3. Gas Stations

Customers are recognized as soon as they approach the pumps. The application prompts them to select a fuel grade through their smartphone. The platform then automatically unlocks the fuel pump and handles the entire sale transaction.

4. Student Pickup

License Plate Recognition can enhance school campus safety. Authorized guardians’ cars are registered ahead of time, with alerts sent to staff if any unrecognized car approaches the building. Text notifications are automatically sent to staff and students when an authorized car approaches the pickup zone.

5. Airport Terminals

License Plate Recognition can enhance airport terminal safety by recognizing taxis and authorized shuttles in appropriate lanes; recognizing and alerting authorities for cars loitering too long; and completing license plate tracking and recording in restricted/secure areas.

“License Plate Recognition technology has been developed for a variety of purposes. Overall, the technology works to make organizations run more smoothly and efficiently while optimizing business operations.
