Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is an underlying technology that accurately reads number plates without human intervention. This technology uses optical character recognition methods to detect characters within images, verify character sequences, and character recognition to convert images to text. The ANPR can be used in surveillance systems, Access control, Motorway road tolling, Law enforcement, and so on.
- Live webcam
- Single/ Multi Images
How it works?
- First, we have to train the model to identify the number plate by using TensorFlow. For that, we collected 500 images as a dataset and we trained to identify the plate
- Second, once the plate is identified we use the word recognition model, to identify the number, this word recognition model will break the whole word into multiple single letters.
- Finally, we used OpenCV to do data preprocessing and extracting the information from the images.
