Dubai Police deployed a new type of scanner mounted to the top of their patrol cars, capable of “reading” vehicle license plates and rapidly detecting those whose owners are wanted by the authorities. At the heart of this new Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system is HPE IDOL, a secure search and analytics engine of the HPE Big Data Platform that delivers actionable intelligence from both structured and unstructured data. In the past 18 months, the system has helped Dubai Police capture 2,739 people locally and internationally.
