PARTNERS / CUSTOMERS
The Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) strives to ensure that all those who walk, cycle, travel by car or use public transport should get to their destination safely. NPRA plans, builds, operates and maintains national and county roads in Norway. It is also responsible for driver tests and inspection of vehicles and road users. The NPRA is one of Norway's most experienced users of automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) systems, applying the technology within road and ferry tolling, automatic speed control and technical control of vehicles.
Signatur ITS has worked together with the NPRA on ALPR testing and optimization within automatic speed control, and are presently engaged in helping the organization improve system performance by applying AI in the form of machine learning / deep learning.
Fjellinjen is responsible for toll collection in the Oslo area. Major road and public transport projects in the capital region are solely or partially funded by road tolls. In 2016 contributions from Fjellinjen were NOK 2,8 billion. The company has more than 600,000 account holders. The number of toll crossings reached 114 million in 2016.
The performance of the Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) system has high priority for Fjellinjen because today some 1/5 of all toll crossings is identified by ALPR. In the future this ratio is likely to increase substantially. If the ALPR system has insufficient performance the number of toll crossings requiring manual verification becomes overwhelming and very costly. Signatur ITS is designing and testing an ALPR solution for Fjellinjen that meets the demands of a high performing, cost-efficient tolling system.
