I learned about the autocheck.com api from another thread:


It's been really accurate (and fast!) for every vehicle I've looked up.

I can't find much info about it on their website. Does anyone know if there are any limits to the number of lookups we can perform?

Are other people using it?

I'm not finding much about using that API. I wish it had color, but the rest of it is nice.

Interesting-- I am looking at using the open ALPR on GITHUB that has not been maintained-- this might be a good double check to see if the plate is valid...

That is impressive and something I can use. I wonder if there is a limit to how many if using a program to collect the information?

If there is a limit, it's quite high. I'm running a backlog of 10k distinct plates through it right now. Hit nearly 2k and it's still going at a few per second.

First I’ve heard of this service. I don’t see an API key in your example so I imagine it’s free to use?

Currently - hopefully it stays that way!
I run the open source version of OpenALPR and my vision would be for each new plate capture to query this service and add the make/model/etc to my database. If it already has the data there is no need to query the service again.

That is exactly what the updated version if my app does. Well, slight tweak on the timing - but same effect. Just released it this weekend.
