Low-Cost Moving Symbols Recognition through Intelligent Vision Engineering


Keywords embedded systems, traffic analysis, vision systems

Start Date: 01 January 1991 / Duration: 36 months / Status: completed

[ contact / participants ]

specify, design, develop and test a real-time transputer-based system for reading the number plates of moving cars

Objectives and Approach

This application is very demanding in terms of the image blur due to vehicle motion, the variability of the lighting conditions, and in the limited number of image pixels for each character to be recognised; requirements which are typical of a larger class of applications.

A prototype system has been successfully completed and evaluated by field tests "on-the-road".
