“…Automatic Number-plate Recognition engine combines innovative machine learning technologies with the traditional image processing…” Hydra is an Automatic Number-plate Recognition engine that combines the innovative machine learning technologies with the traditional image processing techniques. “…95% reliability and a high recognition speed guaranteed…” Candid ITS’s ANPR engine offers a 95% reliability and a high recognition speed guaranteed by the neural networks handcrafted by our own team of engineers, trained on our own dataset. This and the use of well proven image processing algorithms ensure the exceptional accuracy and rapidity of the recognition process.
“… multistep processing eases further research and development…”

Hydra is built as a multistep modular processing pipeline including image pre-processing, plate detection, plate corner fitting, category recognition (optional), OCR and internal post processing. Based on the number of inputs, plates and the processing speed of the executing computer, the main processing steps take a fixed time. The multistep processing eases further research and development, although it is not configurable by end user right now. Hydra, offering several possibilities of use, is a perfect choice for software developers and integrators.
