In fixed site applications, number plate data is fed directly into the BOSS. The data is compared to any number of motor vehicle hotlists and if a match occurs; alerts are deployed wirelessly as authorized by the administrator of the system.
In mobile applications, hotlist comparisons are done using software in a moving vehicle. Hits identified in vehicle can be alerted simultaneously to the BOSS. Administrators can designate, based upon the severity of the matched database or hotlist, which alerts are announced to the BOSS.
