Mobile ANPR Systems

Mobile ANPR Systems assist on-street patrol officers checking for criminal activity by capturing and analyzing number plates against known databases. This compact, rugged system has been IP67 certified and mounts securely below the lightbar for limited visual interference.

Features and Benefits

  • Offers high resolution coverage for a full lane of traffic with up to two concurrent vehicles in the field of view.
  • Instantly checks captured plates against one or more databases of interest to immediately alert officers of hits.
  • Increases spatial awareness for improved officer safety.
  • Enhances proactive, preventative enforcement by enabling more intelligent investigations and data sharing across jurisdictions.
  • Back Office System Software stores all collected data in a central location to support data analysis, data queries and reporting for law enforcement investigations (in accordance with each jurisdiction’s data retention policy).
  • Applications

    On-street enforcement of:

  • Stolen Vehicles
  • Amber Alerts
  • Unregistered Vehicles
  • Wanted Criminals
  • Parking Violations
  • Be on the Lookout (BOLO)

System Components

Mobile ANPR Camera(s) Each System has 1 to 4 dual (IR and color) mobile cameras.

Mobile ANPR Processor Each processor simultaneously supports up to 4 mobile cameras.

Brackets – A variety of camera mounting brackets for various vehicles and light-bar designs.

In-car software PAGIS software provides the graphical user interface (GUI) and in-car application. It compares ANPR images against federal, local or customized hotlists and sends alert when a match occurs.

The PIPS Mobile Systems provide powerful, efficient and reliable solution for long-term mobile ANPR operation to maximize investigative capabilities.

Mobile ANPR Camera (P634)

The PIPS TechnologyTM Mobile ANPR Camera is a dual camera that incorporates infrared illumination for effective number plate imaging and a color camera to provide a vehicle overview image. Using a proprietary technique, known internally as “Triple-flash” technology, this covert camera can effectively suppress ambient light such as headlights and bright sunlight. This helps to reduce the image quality differences caused by plate-to-plate quality variations.


  • Dual camera sensors provide infrared number plate images and color vehicle overview images.
  • Proprietary “Triple-Flash” technology.
  • Compact, low-profile.


  • Superior image quality and accurate performance.
  • Provides durability and longevity in on-street operating environments.
  • Sleek design helps to maintain light bar visibility.
  • Capable of capturing 60 fps.
  • IP67 compliant.
  • Use varying flash, shutter and gain settings to ensure a high quality image in
    a variety of weather or lighting conditions

The PIPS Mobile ANPR Cameras are available in multiple calibrations. In conjunction with the placement on the vehicle, these cameras are designed to meet the specific needs of almost any agency.

Traffic Camera – Primarily suited for adjacent lane traffic application. It is designed for longer-range traffic applications such as interstate and highway patrol. This camera is most often mounted on the patrol vehicle looking forward into each adjacent lane.

Short Traffic Camera – Suited for urban deployments with slower moving city traffic and streets lined with parked vehicles. Also capable of reading across two lanes of traffic.

Parking Camera – Serves a very unique application for dedicated parking patrols. This camera is most commonly mounted on the passenger side looking out 90 degrees from the patrol vehicle.

Long Parking Camera – This camera is typically mounted on the driver side looking out 45 degrees from the patrol vehicle.
