The interactive AutoAlert module enables cashiers to recognise false number plates and known drive-off offenders before the pump is activated. This intelligent module uses pump CCTV imagery to recognise number plates, and it uses the number plate data to retrieve current vehicle registration data. In addition, integration of a local or central black list allows known stolen number plates and drive-off vehicles to be detected.
The unique feature of AutoAlert is that the cashier receives the vehicle data in response to the nozzle-out signal. This means that the number plate is checked before the pump is enabled. The images, the number plate data and the vehicle registration data are also linked to the POS transaction.
