Many local administration, police forces, small and big companies are using it both in Romania and worldwide.

Meanwhile, the OSPA recognition is not the first time Metrici gets top position in a competition. Previous tests proved company’s performance.

Every time, Metrici was selected as best technical solution and chosen as a software provider for clients or for VMS integration.

The OSPA jury and worldwide clients appreciated Metrici Parking Place Detector, recently launched software solution for managing parking spaces with the help of IP cameras.

At any given time one knows the statute of a parking place: busy or free and aș such you can monitor and manage thousands of parking places from one interface no matter where they are and the information can be send to mobile applications or LED displays to alert and direct the drivers. 

Started on this AI based object recognition engine, in this case vehicles, Metrici has developed other applications: such as traffic management. Metrici knows how many vehicles are in an image and what is their type: car, van, bus, truck or bike. Thus one can command traffic lights or LED display depending on traffic load and generates statistics and reports.

Other solutions well valued by the jury and partners QR detection engine is meant for securing the access control. This can be used in cross checking with other Metrici engines, such as LPR or other third party software and hardware.

This engine cand also be used in monitoring a production unit or for transport companies.

 Metrici Container Code Recognition is similar to the LPR solution but for reading container code standard ISO 6346. Area Detection and People Counter are Metrici proposals to detect and count any object in a video stream.

People Counter is one of the first solutions of Metrici and what it does is to detect and count people. Used in retail, shopping centers or city management to generate alarms, see heat maps or reports and statistics. Used also for controlling traffic lights or city lights.

The solution is also a security add-on for sensitive areas where people or animal presence is forbidden and an alarm can be triggered when detected. What Metrici did and was well received is to replace classical security physical sensors and integrate all in one software offer, based on AI and video analytics.

Metrici can monitor dozens of cameras, each one with its detection engine and can be a sensor, alarm trigger, a traffic alert monitoring system, controls and secures the access or can become a trigger for external hardware or third party software.  The maintenance is minimal, the costs are greatly reduced and all applications are to be monitored and integrated in one interface.
