This thesis proposed the license plate recognition system, includes license plate locating, image binarization, calibration of license plate, character segmentation, character recognition and so on, total five parts; In the license plate locating, we use the image process technique to process the input image of automobile change into fixed resolution gray image, use again Sobel edge detection method to find out the edge of license plate, at last use filter to find out the position of license plate; In the image binarization, we use dynamic threshold value method to find out threshold value, let gray image of license plate change into binarized image; In the calibration of license plate, we use bottom outline of license plate analysis method to find out slope angle of license plate and to execute calibration; In the character segmentation, we use vertical projection method to find out the high of character, and we use horizontal projection method to segment the characters of license plate, at last we use partial recognition method to recognize the number of license plate image.
This system takes 200 license plate images from indoor and outdoor parking lots to execute the experiment of license plate recognition, experimental results, the license plate locating successful rate is 98%, the character segmentation successful rate is 95%, the character recognition successful rate is 93%, the average recognition time of each image needs 1.2 second.
