When do we use this?

The Vehicle Search option allows staff/enforcement officers to search vehicles by plate and view details about that vehicle. This is often an important first step in the Violation Issuance process.

  1. Tap on the Search Vehicles option



    Note: If you are connecting to a preview system of OPS-COM you will have one additional menu item at the top of the list indicating that fact.
  2. The Search Vehicles screen will display.
    Note the green dot which indicates the unit is connected to a wifi source. If the dot is yellow that would indicate the unit does not have a connection. To regain a connection try rebooting the software. If that does not reconnect then we suggest turning the device off and then rebooting.



  3. There are three methods to enter the plate information.

    1. Text using the keypad
    2. Voice command using the built in mic
    3. LPR using OCR technology through the tablet's camera


Using Text - On the Vehicle Search screen, enter the plate number that you want to search and tap on the Search button.
The vehicle details will appear below the search area.


Using Voice - Select the microphone. 
The google voice recognition "Say Something" page appears, say the license plate number out loud.

LPR using OCR Technology - Tap the camera icon to enter LPR Search mode.

Line up the plate with the rectangle.  
Long press the screen to take a shot and the screen refreshes with a list of possible plate numbers. 

Select the plate number that matches the image. In this case tap JMUL123.

4. Select the vehicle being searched for. 
Three buttons will appear beneath the license plate for Virtual Chalk, Issue Violation, and Details. 
These buttons will be highlighted in yellow. 


5.Select the green permit that appears underneath the license plate number.  
The permit information appears in the center of the screen (see red circle).

  1. Shannon Jones I didnt have enough time to finish this but its about checking permits in the vehicle search option

    1. Josh Mulloy If you get time this week can you finish it up?

  2. Shannon Jones This is the page i created for checking permits in vehicle search

     

  3. Jessica McFaul [X] Can you edit this for style and grammer. It should follow other wiki articles for Android Users 

  4. Josh Mulloy For consistency, can you redo all of the screen shots except the first 3. Make sure they extra white space is cropped out and that you are using the red border. Use a consistent example for the plate number.  

    1. Shannon Jones i updated all of them except for the first 3, and the voice recognition one as when i tried to screenshot the voice recognition one the logo was red, which is different from the majority of devices
