Abstract

In real world, optical character recognition (OCR) is one of the key terms challenging image processing stream. Various applications are emerging based on OCR; one fine good example of these terms was recognizing vehicle’s number plate in tolls. Since various researchers are under strong discussion in this area, here we proposed a new algorithm for recognizing the characters from the motion pictures. Our proposed model is subjected to two major segregations: One is for character mapping and another one is for character verification. Experimental results have been enclosed with an accuracy level of 97.08 %.
