Unlike traditional methods, Sherpa is a true rapid deployment ANPR camera solution. It does not require any specialist tools or engineers to install – it simply clamps onto a lamp-post or pole and automatically climbs into position, enabling your surveillance requirements to be in place quickly, anytime, anywhere.
Sherpa is currently aiding police forces in the UK with real-time traffic monitoring and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) due to its cost effective, rapid and flexible re-deployment capabilities.
Police forces benefiting from Sherpa’s rapid deploy capability currently include; Northern Ireland Police, Gwent & South Wales Police, Hampshire Police and more.
Benefits of Sherpa
- No specialist equipment required for installation
- Quick and easy deployment in minutes
- Remote real time monitoring
- Easily portable for continuous deployment
Nicola Savage, Sales & Marketing Director at Excelerate, explains the system’s benefits:
Traditional surveillance camera equipment needs specialist installation which can be complicated and is often costly. Sherpa, on the other hand, offers the convenience of a rapidly transportable and easy to set up and operate system that is designed to be used by ordinary officers, not technical personnel
