Vehicles identification

Ask a question

Sigur supports a number of vehicle identification methods. Depending on your goals, you can choose one method that suits you the most or a combination of methods.

Vehicle checkpoints

Vehicle identification upon arrival to and departure from the territory of the company is one of the primary goals of a checkpoint. Most of these checkpoints are equipped with various barriers, gates or bollards. If the traffic is intense, traffic lights or information displays can be additionally installed.

Placement of the readers depends on the identification method used. For example, if a card will be used, the reader should be installed at the level of the driver’s window.

After successful identification, a vehicle can be inspected as necessary. The inspection results and the inspector’s details are registered in the system.

Number plate recognition

To enable use of a number plate as an identifier, Sigur supports integration with a number of video surveillance systems that can recognize number plates, including: Trassir, Eocortex, Intellect and others.

Integration with third-party number plate recognition systems

Sigur provides a development kit that enables the user to configure interactions between third-party number plate recognition algorithms and our access control system.

Please contact our technical support team if you are interested in learning more about the capabilities and principles of self-guided integration of third-party recognition algorithms and Sigur.

Route planning and control at checkpoints

The vehicle identification functionality in Sigur enables vehicle control at checkpoints within the territory of the company such as at unloading areas. If a vehicle has failed to check at the warehouse, it will not be allowed out since the system will see the vehicle as “not unloaded”.

This functionality is also helpful at sites with many tenants, where the traffic of vehicles for each tenant has to be recorded. In this case, readers are installed for each tenant, where all guests will check in at arrival.

Free parking lots count and parking time tracking

The system allows the users to set the total number of parking lots. With vehicles arriving and departing, Sigur will automatically count any occupied and free lots. This information can be shown on a display.

The cost of parking depends on the parking time of the vehicle. Sigur can register the parking time and calculate the parking cost with flexible pricing such as the first hour free, next three hours at one price, five and more hours at another price.
