Integrating CARMEN® engine through
CARMEN® API and the installed hardware

CARMEN<sup>®</sup> Number Plate Recognition Software

Once the hardware is installed, and the images are ready to be processed, the next step is the development of the application which fulfills the enduser's requirements.

The software should
- do the image capturing
- call Carmen engine on the images
- handle the result.

Carmen engine returns a data structure, which contains all the information about the licence plate found you may need.

These data is stored in a structure, therefore
- you can extract those information which you need (just the plate text, or everything, it is up to you)
- you can do anything with these data, eq. store in a database, display on the screen, compare with other data, make statistics...
