Abstract: Automobile Number Plate Recognition and Extraction System using Optical Character Recognition Methodology is one of a kind Intelligent System and is of considerable interest because of its potential applications in highway electronic toll collection and traffic monitoring system. This type of application puts high demands on the reliability of the System. A lot of work has been done regarding license plate recognition systems for Korean, Chinese, European and US license plates that generated many commercial products. However, little work has been done for Indian license plates recognition systems. The purpose of this research is to develop an application which recognizes license plates from vehicles. The system takes images of automobiles as input and processes them. Once a license plate is detected, its digits are recognized and displayed on the User Interface. This work focuses on the design of a single algorithm used for extracting the license plate from a single image, isolating the characters of the plate and identifying the individual characters.
