Appian Technology picked Quantum3D's Embedded Visual Computing Subsystem (EVCS) for its Stinger Intelligent Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera. Quantum3D provides Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS), open-architecture, and realtime visual computing solutions. The camera can recognize vehicle license plates in traffic and subsequently report the results to police via integrated wireless and wired communication technologies including GPRS/GSM, 3G, IEEE 802.11 and IEEE 802.3. "Appian selected the EVCS for the Stinger Program as a result of Quantum3D's unrivalled capability in video capture and processing and deployed visual computing," Tom Keene, commercial director for Appian, said in a statement. "Appian is a recognized leader in ANPR and related machine-vision applications," Ross Q. Smith, president and co-founder of Quantum3D, said in a statement. "The combination of Quantum3D embedded visual computing technology with Appian's domain expertise and customer insights make for a very compelling ANPR solution."
