A Single Neural Network for Mixed Style License Plate Detection and Recognition

Project Code :TMMAIP391


In ALPRNet, two fully convolutional one-stage object detectors are used to detect and classify LPs and characters simultaneously, which are followed by an assembly module to output the LP strings.


Due to recent developments of highway and the increased utilization of vehicles, significant interest has been paid on the latest, effective, and precise intelligent transportation system (ITS). The process of identifying particular objects in an image plays a crucial part in the fields of computer vision or digital image processing.

Vehicle license plate recognition (VLPR) process is difficult because of variations in viewpoint, shape, color, multiple formats and non-uniform illumination conditions while acquiring images. This paper presents effective deep learning based VLPR model using YOLO (You Only Live Once) for detection process of license plate and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) for the process of characters recognition in license plate. For the enhancement of license plate, some Image Processing Techniques are utilized.

Keywords: Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), Vehicle License Plate Recognition (VLPR), YOLO (You Only Look Once), OCR (Optical Character Recognition), Image Processing Techniques.
