HISTORY OF OPENALPR
Developing AI with a purpose
OpenALPR was originally built as open source software by Rekor's Chief Science Officer, Matt Hill, who launched it as a free download in late 2015. In March 2016, a paid Cloud API service launched and in February 2017, the OpenALPR agent for Axis cameras was released. In March 2018, ProgrammableWeb added OpenALPR to its list of Recognition APIs, and in 2019, Rekor acquired OpenALPR to complement its hardware offerings.
