BOSTON, Feb. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via InvestorWire — ev Transportation Services, Inc. (“evTS”), an electric vehicle manufacturer focused on the essential services and urban e-mobility markets, today announces that it has received certification for integration of the Security Center AutoVu™ automated license plate recognition (ALPR) system on its FireFly ESV® vehicles.
The Security Center AutoVu ALPR system automatically reads license plates and identifies parking infractions, enhancing enforcement efficiency and increasing patrol coverage. The solution’s open architecture enables municipalities and other parking operations to select from industry-leading vendors of permit management, pay stations and pay-by-cell solutions and to simultaneously enforce paid parking and time-limit bylaws. As the leading ALPR solution for parking enforcement, AutoVu is deployed across the world by municipalities, institutions and parking operators.
“Tackling urban congestion and use of “curb management” solutions have become an over $50 billion dollar industry annually worldwide. AutoVu is an industry-leading license plate recognition system, which many municipalities are already using in their parking enforcement fleets. Being certified by Genetec Inc. to install the AutoVu system on the FireFly, which can be outfitted as a parking specific vehicle (PSV), adds one more benefit for our customers when purchasing our versatile, highly customizable vehicles,” stated David Solomont, evTS Chairman and CEO.
Larry Legere, Commercial Director of AutoVu, North America at Genetec Inc., said, “Security Center AutoVu™ is currently installed on fleets of gas-powered and electric vehicles around the world.
