C. Poovizhichelvi, S. Jeevanantham, V. Rukkumani


Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) has several applications in traffic systems (highway electronic toll collection, red lightweight violation social control, border and customs checkpoints, etc.). LPR is a good kind of AVI systems. Image pre-processing is completed to form the input image suited additional process. During this project, a wise and easy formula is planned for vehicle’s vehicle plate recognition system. The planned formula is three fold: Extraction of plate region, segmentation of characters and recognition of plate characters. For extracting the plate region Connected element Extraction (CCE) algorithms is employed. For segmentation part Maximally Stable Extremal Regions (MSER) algorithms is used. And finally Cascade Forward Neural Network (CFNN) is used to recognize the characters by using Edge Orientation Histogram (EOH) and Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM) features. The performance of the proposed algorithm is tested with set of 24 images. Based on the experimental results, it is observed that the proposed algorithm outperforms the other existing techniques.
