Every day that passes, pollution becomes even more of a worry for populations and governments worldwide. The most recent studies show that more than 8 million people die every year from bad air quality; 12.5% of deaths (1 in 8) in the EU are linked to air pollution, according to a report published by the EEA (EU Environment Agency) in September 2020.
Air quality is primarily affected by fine particles, Nitrogen Dioxide, Carbon Dioxide and Ozone emissions. Transportation activities are the first source of Greenhouse Gas emissions (30%) and road transportation Is by far, the main source among transport activities.
Controlling road transportation and finding ways to reduce its impact on air quality has a major overall effect on pollution and is considered a priority for governments.
The main advantage of LPR is that it can help reduce emissions by ensuring that vehicles are not using more gas than they should.
Thanks to LPR, it's possible to count vehicles; this allows off-street and on-street parking systems to localize free parking spaces. This "little" enhancement leads to huge decreases in air pollution at the same time as increasing the quality of customer service: most drivers will spend less time finding a place to park.
By identifying vehicles through license plates, License Plate Recognition (LPR) can help enforce eco-regulations, limiting vehicles' access to restricted areas respecting these regulations.
LPR is the best technological tool to enforce Low-emission zones and ensure that only electric or hybrid vehicles access city centers where ground transportation pollution is extreme and harmful.
LPR can also be used to enforce H.O.T. (High Occupancy Tolls) and H.O.V. (High Occupancy Vehicles) lanes and identify trucks that are not respecting limits to weight loads on motorways.
By avoiding “frictions” in road transportation, LPR represents an important contribution to developing pollution-reducing technologies that will make this planet a better place to breathe and live.
