This project deals with the development of an application which recognizes the Vehicle License Plate (VLP) that can be used for traffic system, parking area and border crossings in Nepal.The current project work uses Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Vision, and Neural Network (NN) along with image processing to construct the Vehicle License Plate Recognition (VLPR) system for Nepal.
Specifically the system first takes images of vehicle from camera and then localizes VLP from the image. Once the VLP is detected, it is segmented into individual characters and the characters are recognized. The focus is on the design of algorithms used for extracting the license plate from the image, segmenting the characters of the plate and identifying the individual characters.
Technologies used: Image Processing, Java, ImageJ (IJ) library, Machine Vision
