Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in the US has selected supply chain and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions provider OMNIQ to install its AI-based Automatic License Plate Reader (ALPR) solution at the airport.

ALPR uses optical character recognition technology to read the vehicle registration plates. The technology then creates vehicle location data that can be accessed by passengers.

OMNIQ CEO Shai Lustgarten commented: “We are very proud to have once again been selected to deploy our ALPR systems at one of the largest airports in the world as part of the infrastructure expansion and upgrade of the traffic and parking management systems at LAX.”

He added that the traffic and parking infrastructure at the airport will be renovated along with the completion of the LAX People Mover project and the completion of the rail connection with the airport.

The ALPR solution was chosen to complement the operations of the new parking and traffic initiatives, he said.

Lustgarten added: “Our selection to be part of the parking and traffic management solution for this new area of the airport reaffirms our customer’s confidence in the HTS ALPR technology and solution.

“We believe that the selection of our systems for this large project will generate many new opportunities, including additional requests for OMNIQ to renew equipment at existing facilities and eventually to deploy our new SeeCubed™ AI-Based ALPR systems as part of the airport’s continued effort to improve traveller safety and enhance the experience of flying into and out of LAX.”

The HTS Image Processing division of the company was selected to deploy the technology. HTS Image Processing offers computer vision image processing-based solutions for surveillance.

In May, Finnair started offering biometric boarding with Vision-Box technology at Los Angeles International Airport.
