Automatic Number Plate Recognition (Python)


It’s been a while since I last coded in Python. Gotta give Python the love it deserves!

Here’s a quick demo of automatic number plate recognition of vehicle plates from a video stream using OpenALPR in Python

I’m surprised at the speed difference I obtained using OpenALPR in Python vs VB.NET, maybe I need to review my VB.NET code 😐  Silly me! I forgot that I had intentionally used timers to slow down the results in VB.NET

Also I feel adding motion detection might be a nice feature and would prevent the results from flooding at the output.
