"Smart" barrier at the entrance to the main building of the University "Dubna"

In Dubna developed software Surveillance System, combined with a system of automatic recognition of license plates and the engine control gate. Established in Dubna system is simple to maintain and can be used, if necessary, controlled passes a large number of vehicles.

The task of creating an automated system management pass cars was originally dictated by the urgent need to organize the movement of vehicles and parking on the campus of the University "Dubna". Today, the main university in Dubna has about four thousand students. It employs more than 600 teachers. On the university campus is located five academic buildings, five dormitories, fitness center, designed and visiting residents, here is located high school for gifted children. Every day in parking lots on campus parked hundreds of cars like the Dubna, and those who come to the university from nearby towns and cities — Cymru, Konakova, Taldoma, Verbilok, dammed, Dimitrov and others, as well as from Moscow. 

In high school thinking about how to provide transportation to parking only for those who are studying or working, and how to separate traffic flows in different Paleolithic encampments, so that they are loaded evenly. Do it manually with the huge influx of cars is unrealistic. It was necessary to develop a simple and user-friendly interface to automatically pass through the gate of registered vehicles by reading and identifying their rooms.

Problem was solved with the help of joint development University "Dubna" and "Research Enterprise" Cesis " (This is a small innovative company created by the University and Scientific-production company "Nordavind," which is a resident of SEZ "Dubna").

They have developed an automated system management pass vehicles consists of several components: a server computer and video camera, mounted on the roof of one of the university buildings. In fact, it is analog devices videofiksatsii, that stand in the suburban highways. When the field of view camera car software intelligent pattern recognition determines the location of the license plate of a car and automatically makes its identification with the database. In the case of identical data, the gate will open automatically, letting the car, and after its passage — is automatically closed.

Currently known of the automatic control of machinery pass more work in hardware-software mode and can not cope with large volumes of vehicles. As a rule, they are limited in the number stored in memory and numbers of machines have a bad interface, making it difficult to work with the database.

Established in Dubna system is simple to maintain and can be used, if necessary, controlled passes a large number of vehicles.

In the near future campus "Dubna" will be fenced, which will use the system in practice. As long as it is used in a test mode when driving cars to the main building of the university.
