Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) Market 2024 | ANPR Systems Face Heat in U.K. for Privacy Violations during COVID-19 Lockdown

Drones and automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) systems have been extensively used during major COVID-19 (coronavirus) lockdown periods in Europe. After the World Health Organization (WHO) stated that COVID-19 situation is serious in Europe, companies in the automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) market are capitalizing on the demand for these surveillance systems. ANPR systems have played a crucial role to recognize suspects that have been violating lockdown norms. However, these surveillance systems and contact tracing apps have been facing the heat regarding human rights concerns over privacy of citizens.

The Liberty human rights group in the U.K. has suggested to deploy voluntary compliance with lockdown restrictions instead of ramping up coercive and oppressive tactics. As such, police authorities are increasing efforts to normalize the idea of surveillance and concerning techniques to ensure public health safety. These factors are likely to drive the automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) market.
