Install#

Plate Recognizer Blur is packaged as a Docker container that you can pull from the docker hub registry by running this command:

docker pull platerecognizer/skew-correction

Upgrade#

To update to a newer version of the container, just run:

docker container stop skew-correctiondocker pull platerecognizer/skew-correction:latest

Run#

Collect the images in a single directory. Then run this command from a terminal:

docker run -it -e KEY=password123 -v  /home/brian/VehicleLicensePlates:/images -e TOKEN=MY_TOKEN platerecognizer/skew-correction

The above command assumes:

  1. The images are located in /home/brian/VehicleLicensePlates
  2. The container passcode is password123

The container will send the images to the Cloud API and use the detected plate bounding boxes to perform blurring.
When the container completes processing, you will see new files in the original images folder with blur- prepended to the original file names.
