Abstract

In this work, we describe a system able to recognize the V.L.P. (Vehicle License Plate) of a car from an image of it. The system is still under development and has many practical applications. As examples, we can mention: parking accounting systems, traffic monitoring and security systems of many kinds. The system, at an experimental stage, is installed in a parking at the time of writing.
