License Plate Detection

License plate detection is a technology that recognizes vehicle number plates in an image or video. The technology uses optical character recognition to capture images or videos from license plates and transforms the optical data into digital information. With license plate recognition technology, it is possible to keep track of vehicles entering or leaving the territory, the number of times the vehicle appears, how long it stays, etc. License plate recognition technology is widely used for vehicle management operations, such as parking control, access control, toll collection, traffic monitoring and security, and many other systems.
