Vehicle 3-dimension measurement by monocular camera based on license plate
w w w . i j c s t . c o m InternatIonal Journal of Computer SCIenCe and teChnology 365 Abstract As automatic vehicle number plate detection has many applications in traffic systems, vehicles number plate detection has been intensively studied in many countries. In this paper, a simple and efficient method is presented which is mainly designed for Indian vehicles number plate detection. The presented method is based upon edge detection with sobel operator, dilation and template matching process. The proposed method has been tested over real images and from the results it shows good performance in number plate detection.
