PIPS Technology™ increases Vehicle Recognition Software offering with acquisition of Artificial Intelligence “Mantis” software platform

Mantis, which is successfully deployed in a wide range of law enforcement and vehicle recognition scenarios, including for agencies such as Los Angeles Police Department, assists in detection and classification of vehicle characteristics to solve a variety of customer needs from many segments.

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PIPS Technology™, a business division of Neology and a leading provider of Automatic Number/License Plate Recognition (ANPR/ALPR) solutions, is pleased to announce that it has signed and closed an agreement to acquire the Mantis Software platform. Mantis is used by a range of Mobility system providers and end-users to provide Artificial Intelligence based Vehicle Classification, using a range of camera systems, including PIPS Technology’s own IRIS Fixed Camera and Golden Eagle mobile platforms.

Mantis Image Analytics
Using the Mantis image analytics engine provides additional metadata to officers. The additional data increases the accuracy of the image, validates the correct vehicle, and compliments the industry leading PIPS OCR engine.

PIPS Technology™ is a pioneer of detection innovation systems in more than 100 countries and this represents a significant investment and commitment as the company positions itself as the leader in the vehicle recognition market. Mantis is a versatile, all-in-one, and high performance Vehicle Recognition solution for law enforcement, open road tolling, parking management, low emission, access control and other traffic mobility activities.

“Mantis has proven itself in the evolving Machine Vision market with many customers, new and existing, using the technology for several years – it powers more than 90% of the Law Enforcement Agencies in the US who are taking advantage of this emerging technology in the detection and solving of crimes,” said Luke Normington, the Global General Manager of PIPS Technology. “With some of the largest Police Agencies in the world using the Mantis software to help their investigations already reaping rewards it is a technology which we are very excited about the reach and use this technology brings to the market. Our clients are able to rapidly reduce the effort, and cost, to identify vehicles where eye-witness evidence and ANPR / ALPR data is insufficient to determine with sufficient precision the vehicles targeted for investigation.”

The PIPS Mantis platform is the latest member of the PIPS Technology™ portfolio and is already coupled with PIPS Technology™ own software solutions, including Deep Learning Recognition technology for License Plate recognition, providing a turn-key solution for modern mobility and security challenges.

“Here at PIPS Technology™ we are proud of our heritage and excited about the future. Our acquisition of Mantis fits perfectly in our vision to 'Drive Detection Innovation' and ensures that not only we enrich our expertise in our traditional markets but also acquire complementary technology to enable us to fulfill even the most stretching customer requirements. Following a period of close technical integration of Mantis into our existing solutions, we are already looking forward to how our portfolio is evolving beyond the traditional ANPR / ALPR marketplace which is seeing tremendous global shift,” said Luke. “The use of the technology is wide-reaching beyond the original Law Enforcement market-place as customers become aware of the capabilities of the technology. We are already in detailed discussions with customers across the Mobility spectrum ranging from Tolling to Parking Enforcement with many applications in between.”

Mantis is available now from Neology directly as well as from certified channel partners and integrators.
