License plate recognition plays an important role in Intelligent Transport System; however, plate region extraction is the key step before the final recognition. In this paper, an effective license plate extraction algorithm based on vertical edge detection and mathematical morphology is proposed, which can exactly extract the plate from complex background. The proposed algorithm mainly consists of two modules: license plate region's rough detection and license plate accurate detection. The…
