Since social networking has become such an integral part of the Internet's global population, Bump.com incorporated license plate recognition technology to utilize plates as an e-mail, phone number and IP address identifiers.

Drivers who sign up online can get their plates read by markers that can view five plates per second at 150 mph. They will be able to receive roadside assistance and can constantly communicate with each other. The new integrated license plate recognition can do a variety of productive tasks.
