Better ALPR

Environment Matters. It’s easy to decode a license plate from a high-res photo of a vehicle on a sunny day. But we know that in reality, the weather and other conditions are not always ideal. We have been relentlessly enhancing our algorithms to support various “real-life” factors, such as sun glare, blurry images, fast vehicles, night-time, and many more.

Self-Learning. Our ALPR engine is like a teenager, it continues to learn. This means we can fine-tune our engine to help meet your specific needs, such as a certain camera angle or lighting condition. See how we worked to improve our ALPR for India license plates!

Location-Optimized. Let’s face it–not all plates are the same. Some have two rows of text. Some have icons at the beginning, middle or end of the plate. Some contain fancy fonts. Thankfully, our LPR engine supports them all and is tuned specifically for your region.

Five is Better than One. Unlike other ALPR providers, we can return up to 5 decoded license plates from one image. We achieve this by utilizing two distinct neural networks. One identifies all the photos of license plates from an image and the other decodes each character of the plate.
