Saudi License Plate Recognition

Saleh Basalamah

Abstract—Automatic license plate recognition systems (LPR) can help reduce the number of traffic violations and make our streets safer. In this project we developed an automatic system that locates Saudi license plates in a captured image regardless of the time of day or license plate scale. The proposed system can tolerate slight tilting of the license plate. The localization process is fairly complex due to the highly varying nature of the background. Good results were obtained using the localization stage. A second part of the system was developed to segment and recognize the characters in the located license plate.

Index Terms—Intelligent transportation systems, license plate recognition, saudi license plates.
