Chinese license plate recogintion


How to recognize Chinese license plate using openalpr sdk?


Just use the country code “cn” for China. For example, using the command line:
alpr -c cn [image file]


I’ve installed alpr on ubuntu following the steps on github using the easiest way. I want to use alpr to recognize chinese license plate but found no cn.conf on path /usr/share/openalpr/runtime_data/config. Could you please tell me how to make it to support Chinese, thank you very much in advance.


Chinese recognition is available in the commercial engine. You can download that here:
