Embedding Security at Border Checkpoints

Application Story

AI-Driven License Plate Recognition at the Border

There is a constant tension between maximizing border security and minimizing traveler inconvenience. Increasing international travel puts even more stress on our systems. Land border crossings add the movement of private cars and commercial trucks into the mix. Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) technology has been deployed in both in-bound and out-bound lanes at several US land border checkpoints. ALPR allows vehicles license plates to be automatically checked against law enforcement databases for outstanding warrants or other alerts. This technology is also used to read truck license plates and match the truck with a manifest that has been pre-filed with CBP, again speeding processing.
