Cloud API Multiple Plates


When there are multiple plates in a single image, is there any order to how the vehicles/plates are returned?


There is no deterministic order to the plate results. However, each result includes the plate coordinates, so you could use this to sort them anyway you like (e.g., top to bottom, left to right, biggest to smallest, etc).


Thank you for that.

What is the strategy for identifying plates? E.g. Top-down, left-to-right?


It’s done in a way that means the output appears to be essentially random. The only way to reliably order the plate results would be to use the metadata output.
