Abstract—Vehicle License Plate Recognition is an important area of Image processing which has various applications. In situations where no standard number plate format and font is maintained, identification becomes difficult. In this paper, we discussed effect of Edge Detection and Template Matching on identification of Vehicle Number Plates with various types of fonts. Experimental results show that the performance of the proposed method is simple and satisfactory, considering the complexity of the input image.
Index Terms—Character Recognition, Edge Detection, Template Matching.
