If anyone is interested, I’ve completed my car plate identification script.
It’s a bit long to share inside this post, but you are welcome to check out the source on my github repo
The script captures an image from a dashcam, then analyzes and displays the car make and plate number. The image is also copied to clipboard for further integration (e.g. posting to FB groups of car plate spotting).
You are welcome to use it as is (though the dashcam API is specific to the model I have). Other parts of the script can be used as sample code for image manipulation (crop and resize), and form submission via API.
You can see example images of the camera’s original image and the captured data below. Actual license plate numbers were partially hidden, but the identification was exact.
