By default, the LPR channel scans the whole video image received from the camera for the LP number. To decrease the CPU load, a smaller area where the LP should be searched for, can be specified.

Note.

This setting is given only when Auto-Uragan, CARMEN-Parking, CARMEN-Auto or ARH-Containers program module is used.

Note.

If the LP search area boarder is specified, only the license plates that completely fit into the area will be recognized.

The search area borders can be specified using one of two methods:

  1. Manual entry of the area coordinates;
  2. Pointing at the borders on the video image using the mouse.

To manually enter the exact coordinates of the search area boarders, do the following:

  1. In the System Settings dialog window, open the Hardware tab (1).
  2. In the object tree of the Hardware tab, select the LPR channel, corresponding to the activated Auto-Uragan, CARMEN-parking, CARMEN-Auto, ARH-Containers, VIT or IntLab-Carriages program module (see Activating the program module, used for identifying the plates section, 2).The settings panel of the selected object will open on the right side of the window.
  3. Check the Search area checkbox (3).
  4. In the Left, Top, Right, and Bottom fields, enter the coordinates of the corresponding search area boundaries, as a percentage of the full frame size (4).
  5. Click Apply (5).

To specify the search area borders using the mouse, do the following:

  1. In the System Settings dialog window, open the Hardware tab (1).
  2. In the object tree of the Hardware tab, select the LPR channel, corresponding to the activated Auto-Uragan, CARMEN-Parking, CARMEN-Auto, ARH-Containers, VIT or IntLab-Carriages program module (see Activating the program module, used for identifying the plates section, 2).The settings panel of the selected object will open on the right side of the window.
  3. Check the Search area checkbox (3).
  4. Click the  button to open the Search area borders window. The window Search area borders displays the video image from the camera set in the LPR channel settings.
