Abstract: This paper presents an approach to license plate localization and segmentation. Vehicle license plate identification and segmentation is an important part of the vehicle license plate recognition. In recent years the number of vehicles has increased drastically especially cars; which causes difficulty in tracking vehicles for the purpose of parking admission, traffic management and law enforcement especially at state borders. The proposed idea of work is based on image processing tool and helps in functions like vehicle license plate recognition. The proposed algorithm is based on a combination of morphological operation for license plate localization, extraction of plate region and segmentation of characters.
