Image acquisition and analysis has been an active area of AI research within the computing community for decades, with military and intelligence uses from the very beginning. However, with the advent of wireless communications, low cost CCD cameras and pervasive computing, a wide variety of new non-military uses are being discovered for these technologies.
of the key public uses for such technologies is the automatic
acquisition of vehicle identification and location data.
Collection can be from mobile units

Uses vary from passive fleet management, to asset retention and
