Vision Components and its Austrian partner, SL Solutions, have founded Carrida Technologies, a subsidiary that aims to develop vehicle and number plate recognition.

The joint venture is headed by Jan-Erik Schmitt, vice president of sales at Vision Components, and Oliver Sidla, founder and managing director of SL Solutions. Schmitt is responsible for European sales at Carrida Technologies and oversees international sales together with Endre Tóth.

The core products of Carrida Technologies are hardware-independent software for automatic number plate recognition, embedded number plate recognition cameras, and software modules for vehicle make and model recognition.

Vision Components has been marketing the Carrida software engine since 2014. The ANPR software includes a make and model identification function featuring deep learning algorithms.

The Carrida software reads number plates from more than 50 countries with a typical accuracy of 96 per cent. It requires a minimum character size of only eight pixels.
