Green Japanese Plates


Hello, my name is Andres from Japan.

I am writing because, in my company we are trying the OpenALPR API to recognize the number plates of some vehicles(Trucks) but we found some problems with the recognition.

All the Green color plates in Japan are not recognized, and we are very interested to know if is possible to fix that issue or not, because we are thinking to use your API services for some projects.

Thank you very much for your time.


Yes, we have been able to collect a large number of these Japanese plate styles recently. We will be including better support for this plate style in our next release. We have also collected plates from a wide variety of regions which will improve the province detection in Japan as well. The next release is slated for early March.


Thank you very much!

Great news to hear :wink:
