OpenALPR is an automated license plate recognition library that analyzes images and identifies license plates. The output is the text representation of any license plate characters found in the image. It uses OpenCV computer vision libraries to recognize and analyze the plate images, and the Tesseract OCR library and a specially trained character set to recognize characters.
