The license plate recognition system is a core part of the Intelligent Transportation Systems , violation detection , highway automatic toll collection and intelligent parking management plays an important role in the transport sector . The license plate recognition system , including the license plate location, character segmentation , license plate character recognition three parts , the license plate character recognition is one of the key technologies of the license plate recognition , is currently one of the hot topics of research in this field . In this paper, the license plate character recognition and related technologies , and research topics include : . Transition characteristics based on the shape of the plate area and grayscale positioning license plate location ; proposed an improved based on the the projector distance between the characters tilt correction method for correcting the tilt license plate , after the removal of the border on the license plate , license plate character segmentation using the projection method . License plate characters smoothing, normalization and other preprocessing . Extract improved elastic mesh feature numeric and alphabetic characters , Kanji characters , the strokes of a superimposed grid weighted feature extraction method to extract the directional line element feature . Focuses on character recognition method based on BP neural network , a three -layer BP neural network structure design , parameter settings , as well as the design of the training set method ; BP neural network has slow convergence , easy to fall into the local minimum of defects introduced momentum term and adaptive learning rate and steepness factor and integrated with the improved method . The method enables network convergence to more advantage of the convergence rate has also been accelerated to improve the recognition rate . . Focuses on the character recognition method based on support vector machines , the use of \SVM method in the case of feature extraction can get high recognition rate .
