License Plate Recognition for Remote Monitoring of Traffic
This paper addresses the implementation of a control strategy for traffic rules. We propose a completely automated challan system that will suffice in order to determine any punishable offence regarding traffic signals. The project aims at designing a system which includes a USB camera which automatically captures the image of the number plate of a vehicle whenever any vehicle attempts to cross the traffic light illegally i.e. when the signal is red. This system works on a Raspberry Pi processor which will transmit the processed characters using image processing techniques to the control room in order to take some authorised action against the driver.
