Drifting in the black

Indeed. My post was meant to be read in the context of my previous reply to Ook.Not really. It’s one thing to kludge some code together to prove a concept on your laptop, but an entirely different matter to turn it into a scaleable and networked enterprise grade platform. Maybe this wouldn’t cost $86m, granted, but actual implementation is not quite as trivial as this guy makes it seem.
There's something to be said for the relative ease with which he was able to cobble together a working system, but as you said, it's another thing entirely to build something that's production-ready. Just the chain of evidence is a headache all on its own, if your ANPR system is also going to double as a CCTV system.
