Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR; see also other names below) is a technology that uses optical character recognition on images to read vehicle registration plates.
It can use existing closed-circuit television, road-rule enforcement cameras, or cameras specifically designed for the task.
Critics have described it as a form of mass surveillance.
Systems commonly use infrared lighting to allow the camera to take the picture at any time of the day.
