Automatic Number Plate Detection System

Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system is designed for recognition of license plate without manual assistance using digital image processing. We are aware of the drastic increase in number of vehicles recently, hence it is necessary to digitalize the information record of these vehicles. The ANPR system makes it possible. We propose a system which performs various digital image processing algorithms on the image of vehicle and segments the license plate into individual characters. The system does so using the combination of suitable algorithms in accordance with the application, hence proves to be highly efficient and fast. We perform character extraction, character segmentation and recognition work, using English characters and numbers. Keywords—Pre-processing, Edge detection, Segmentation, Character recognition
