- License plate detection is a key part in vehicle license plate recognition system. In this paper, we present a hybrid method for license plate detection from natural scene images for the all-day traffic surveillance environment. The proposed method includes two stages: rough detection and accurate detection. Coarse detection stage based on color edge and morphology can help finding the region of interest quickly. Accurate detection stage based on HOG and SVM accurately detect the vehicle license plate. The effectiveness of the proposed method has been proven by the experimental results on a large database of images.
