Abstract

In today's world automatic license plate recognition play an important role in monitoring and organizing vehicles. In this paper, we propose a method of detecting and recognizing the license plates of vehicles in an automatic way in our country. The system can be used to collect toll, in car parking and find stolen vehicles. We have used different image processing techniques like resizing image, image binarization, connected component analysis, image enhancement and noise filtering. Our system is composed of four main modules, such as detection of the license plate area, extraction of license plate. Then, segmentation of characters and words and finally recognition of the characters and words. As Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) imposed a common standard for vehicle license plate, the size and aspect ratio of all license plates are same. We have used a threshold value to detect and extract the license plate based on our analysis. Afterward, for character segmentation, we used connected components. Later, we used deep learning tool 'the Convolutional Neural Network' for character recognition. Due to the lack of a standard data set, we have developed a customized dataset of Bangladeshi number plate for the implementation of our method. The accuracy of our proposed system is 95.42%.
