Vehicle license plate location is the key of the vehicle plate recognition system. This paper proposes a new method that sufficiently utilizes the color feature such as fixed color collocation, color centers and distribution in the plate region. In this method, firstly, the input image is convolved with 1-D Gaussian filter, and the regions which have the(More)
This work proposes a novel algorithm for character segmentation of degraded license plate based on prior knowledge. Firstly, this algorithm performs preprocessing on the license plate, such as size normalization, uneven illumination correction, contrast enhancement, incline correction and edge enhancement; then, locates the character segments according to(More)
MIT ABSTRACT A GelSight sensor is a tactile sensing device comprising a clear elastomeric pad covered with a reflective membrane, coupled with optics to measure the membrane's deformations. When the pad is pressed against an object's surface, the membrane changes shape in accord with mechanical and geometrical properties of the object. Since soft tissue is(More)
Humans can often estimate tactile properties of objects from vision alone. For example, during online shopping, we can often infer material properties of clothing from images and judge how the material would feel against our skin. What visual information is important for tactile perception? Previous studies in material perception have focused on measuring(More)
License plate recognition is the key of the intelligent transport monitoring system and the rate of license plate type identification is one of the important technical specifications in this recognition system. This paper proposed a new method based on clustering and neural network to identify the license plate type. The experimental results of more than(More)
