An OpenALPR agent running on a next-generation Intel i5 CPU for desktop computers can process approximately 20 frames per second of video at a resolution of 720p.
In other words, an agent can handle three cameras for low speed vehicles, two cameras for medium speed vehicles and one camera for high speed vehicles.
The memory and disk requirements are relatively constant. Once OpenALPR is initialized, the process uses approximately 500 MB per analysis thread (CPU core), and the memory usage will not increase. The agent records JPEG images on a disc as the plates are recognized.
The agent software compatible with Windows can be obtained by clicking on the following link:
We must run the software with administrator permissions, for this you have to right click on the installer and click on Run as administrator.
