Urban Road User Charging Online Knowledge Base

Technology Used

The Ecopass Area has 43 entrance points, each equipped with CCTV (Closed-Circuit Television) cameras designed to record vehicles entering and exiting the zone. Cameras can record licence plate numbers and pollution class with a 90% accuracy rate through automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology.



Each Ecopass gate has 2 built-in cameras: the first one takes pictures of all incoming vehicles, while the second identifies car plates through an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) system, for vehicle classification.
