Amano Europe and Nedap are Joining Forces to Optimize Vehicle Throughput at Gates




Together with platform partner Amano Europe, Nedap Identification Systems helps organizations by optimizing their vehicle throughput. The integration between Nedap’s ANPR Lumo camera and Amano’s Parking Management System results in a fast passage, helping to avoid any queues at the entry and exit lanes.

Recently, Amano Europe installed Xparc in the Belgian hospital, Ziekenhuis Oost-Limburg (ZOL) campus Sint-Jan, in Genk and joined forces with Nedap Identification Systems to optimize the vehicle throughput. Belgian number plates are known for being difficult to read, due to the white background with red characters. However, this is not a challenge for Nedap’s ANPR Lumo camera because of its high-read accuracy. The integration between the parking management system with Nedap’s ANPR cameras results in a fast passage.

It is also the perfect combination for situations where vehicles need to be granted access temporarily or incidentally, to handle reservations, or to install ticketless Amano-APP based parking solutions.

Amano has chosen the Nedap ANPR camera because the ANPR Lumo is a high-end Automatic Number Plate Recognition camera. Deep learning algorithms enable a high accuracy in both regions with common license plate formats and non-standardized license plate formats. Furthermore, the camera’s performance remains optimal under difficult (sun)lighting conditions. With this, Nedap takes on a market leader role that fits in with the well-thought-out parking solutions that Amano offers.

“Nedap Identification Systems is happy to be part of the Amano ecosystem by providing LPR and identification hardware on par with the Xparc quality and performance.” – Wouter Van Steenkiste, Business Development Manager at Nedap Identification Systems.

“Amano offers solutions that embrace the latest standards in parking. Ticketless systems, reservation APPs, etc., have turned the license plate into a key identifier of the car. Using an accurate ANPR camera like Nedap’s Lumo is by consequence imperative.” – Roger Hulsbosch, Project Manager at Amano Europe.
