Research on License Plate Location Algorithm

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 217)


License plate location is an important step in car license plate recognition technology applications. Many scholars have developed many license plate detection algorithms; this paper will introduce some current technologies of license plate location. In this paper, several common license plate location methods are introduced briefly and compared.
